Personalities | KT Tunstall | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Singer-songwriter, b. 1975)

‘One-woman band’ Kate Tunstall started out busking the streets of Edinburgh and playing to students. Her break came with a UK TV appearance on Jools Holland’s Later …, hastily scheduled to replace rapper Nas. Her mix of folk sensibilities with a more boisterous, bawdy yet gentle delivery (doubtless honed on Scottish streets), combined with her striking good looks have seen her find mass acceptance, and resulted in vast sales of debut album Eye To The Telescope (2004).
