In the wake of receiving a whopping six ARIA nominations, Melbourne songbird Megan Washington's debut album has been certified gold.
I Believe You Liar has just marked its spot as the top-selling Aussie debut album of 2010.
“This has been the most surreal time of late, but also not so surreal, because I feel that the band and I have been working really hard for two years to get to this place - wherever it is," Washington said.
"While being written about and reviewed and the like is OK, the attention isn't really what matters. What is making me smile right now is that so many people are hearing my music and seemingly really, honestly getting it! Which is really special given the songs come from such a personal place.”
Washington’s six ARIA nominations included Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Female Artist, Breakthrough Artist, Best Adult Alternative Album, and Most Popular Australia Artist.
