She is a self-confessed fan of David Bowie and Ella Fitzgerald, characteristics of whom are apparent in her strong femininity and intelligent, illustrative lyrics. She is famed world-wide for her live performances in which she captivates not only by the way she moves passionately with the music but also by the way she runs the stage with consummate technical ability. This supreme combination of Bob Dylan-folk rock with a White Stripe-y ethic is for all people of all tastes, so don't miss out on our KT Tunstall tickets.
Born in Edinburgh and raised in St Andrews, KT Tunstall was interested in physics and cosmology from an early age, a personal trait that became abundantly clear on the release of Eye to the Telescope in 2004. As she entered her mid teens, music became her primary focus, the flute and guitar being her chosen instruments. She continued for some years with formal education at St Andrews, Kent School and later studied music at Royal Holloway. A contemporary of bands like Texas and The Beta Band, she was involved heavily in the Scottish music scene as she continued to write songs and play in local bands. In late 2004 she went into a rural English studio and came out shortly afterwards with Eye to the Telescope in hand, to be released a few months later on Relentless records.
It is difficult to exaggerate the critical and popular praise KT Tunstall has received for Eye to the Telescope. The album debuted at #3 in the British charts and has sold 2.5 million copies to date.
