The article relates the success story of singer Sandi Thom. Thom's debut album, Smile…It Confuses People, is out September 12, 2006 in North America via Columbia. Her public profile took off in February 2006, when the then-unknown singer set up a Webcam in her basement flat in Tooting, South London, England, and streamed a live performance for 21 consecutive nights. Amid several accusations, her album went straight to number one in its first week and is now number 24 after 13 weeks on the British chart.
