Since scoring a worldwide smash with her debut album Eye To The Telescope in 2004, which went on to sell over 5 million copies, KT Tunstall has remained at the forefront of UK singer- songwriter talent. Subsequent albums cemented the Scottish singer-songwriter’s reputation as a major recording talent, as well as a mesmerising live artist.
Tunstall has toured the world many times over, winning a host of British awards and landing a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. She lent her tunes to a host of movies and TV shows (Suddenly I See, used in the iconic opening scene of Meryl Streep flick The Devil Wears Prada).
The last few years have seen something of a creative rebirth for Tunstall. She was accepted as one of six annual fellows for the Sundance Film Institute’s Composers Lab (hosted by George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch in Northern California) and has since scored music for short and feature films. She has also been named the Inspirational Artist at the Women In Music Awards and was chosen as the first ever female Grand Marshal (following the likes of Sir Sean Connery) to lead April 2018’s annual New York Tartan Week parade.
In May 2018 she and Mike McCready, of legendary multi-million selling Pearl Jam, released a cover of Tom Petty’s huge hit single I Won’t Back Down with proceeds going to Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation.
In 2019, KT headlined across the UK and Europe with her all-female band, including sets at Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, HebCelt, Larmer Tree and Car Fest festivals), toured across the US & Canada, supported Hall & Oates on their UK arena tour and played a handful of shows in Japan.
