KT Tunstall emerged in 2004 with ‘Eye To The Telescope’. She has released four critically acclaimed albums since and her songs have been used everywhere from the opening credits of The Devil Wears Prada to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign theme. Her last album ’KIN’, released in 2016, received rave reviews and debuted at No.7 on the official UK Album Charts.
Recently KT has been awarded the Inspirational Artist gong at the Women In Music Awards.
