Following 3 sold out intimate rock club shows this September, Brit and Ivor Novello Award winning singer and songwriter KT Tunstall, who is about to release her 6th studio album, WAX, announces a full UK & Ireland tour for March 2019. Touring for the first time with an all-female band.
KT Tunstall emerged in 2004 with Eye To The Telescope. She has since released a further four critically acclaimed albums 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. She was chosen as the first ever female Grand Marshal (following the likes of Sir Sean Connery) to lead April’s annual New York Tartan Week parade. In May she and Mike McCready, of legendary multimillion selling Pearl Jam, also released a cover of Tom Petty’s huge hit single I Won’t Back Down with proceeds going to Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation. KT has spent the summer touring worldwide with superb artists including, The Pretenders, Simple Minds and Barenaked Ladies.
