Grammy-nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and world renown for her songs like “Suddenly I See” (used in “The Devil Wear Prada”) and “Black Horse and a Cherry Tree,” Tunstall hails from Scotland, but has toured the world over. In the past few years, she has toured with The Pretenders, Barenaked Ladies and Hall and Oates amongst others. Her latest studio album, 2018’s “WAX,” has received international acclaim; with a focus on the electric guitar.
Since scoring a worldwide smash with her debut album in 2004, KT Tunstall has remained at the forefront of UK singer- songwriter talent. Over the next decade, three further critically acclaimed albums followed; Drastic Fantastic, Tiger Suit and Invisible Empire//Crescent Moon in 2007, 2010 and 2013 respectively, kept the platinum sales rolling and cementing the Scottish singer-songwriter’s reputation as a major recording talent, as well as a mesmerizing live artist. 2012 and the years that followed saw a seismic shift in outlook – the loss of her father, a divorce, and a relocation to Venice Beach, California. After a period of healing, soul-searching, and a change of scenery, 2016 hailed the arrival of the first of a trilogy of albums, the critically acclaimed UK top 10 album, KIN. The trilogy evokes, separately and in sequence, spirit, body and mind.
With the extraordinary new Blackberry Light, the Mississippi-based troubadour builds upon the distinctive musical approach first mined on his 2009 breakthrough Like A Bird, Like A Plane, employing supple grooves and ambient Daniel Lanois-inspired production to enhance the elemental force of his classic songwriting influenced by the likes of Bob Marley, Bill Withers and Dire Straits.
