Pack Up singer Eliza Doolittle has given her opinion on why so many Brits cross the pond to try and crack America but never seem to have the same success. Eliza claims that, as long as the person is just being true to themselves, then they should not worry if they do not achieve state side success.
Doolittle explained, “Sometimes people just won’t get it. I think there’s something to be said about honesty, I guess, and just being yourself. It doesn’t matter then whether it goes well or not because at least you know you’ve been yourself. And in a way, sometimes being honest and being yourself is the reason why it doesn’t translate, because it’s your culture and sometimes that’s the thing that doesn’t swim over the sea very well because people like what they know already.”
She added, “It’s like that in some cases, and then in some cases it doesn’t matter and the music connects anyway. We’ve got some great British artists that have come over here and done well.” Eliza Doolittle is currently working on new material for her second album, which is likely to be released in the UK next year.
