The album celebrates classic singer-songwriting and reveals K.T. as an exceptional writer in the tradition of Rikki Lee Jones, Carole King and Fleetwood Mac with songs that manage to be both intensely personal and incredibly accessible. In an era of wannabes and teen fakes KT’s unique perspective offers a rare emotionally connecting intensity through it’s gripping lyrical bite and heartfelt melody. KT is that rare commodity - an artist that seems to arrive out of nowhere, fully formed, and with songs that sound like you have known them forever. “My songs examine and explore little specific emotions or situations or stories,” KT explains. “I imagine focusing through windows into houses & finding all these different emotions”. Produced by Steve Osborne (U2/New Order/Doves), and with extra production by Andy Green (Keane), the album was recorded during the early part of 2004.On the recording process KT says, “I didn’t want to take too much equipment into the studio because it’s when you have to be inventive that you get interesting music. Tom Waits said if you want something to sound like a cardboard box being hit with a boot, then hit a cardboard box with a boot.” The album features a bonus live track ‘Black Horse & The Cherry Tree’ recorded for the first time on ‘Later With Jools Holland’.

Christo, Hartbeespoort. 17 July 2005

When combining Chinese blood with a Scottish heart, you’re already in for something a little different. Send it on a journey to explore the dark side of music, throw in some attitude, sass, a dilemma or two and put it in an after-hours blues joint, and you’ve got another highly talented singer-songwriter that delivers music reminiscent of Katie Melua and Joss Stone, but with the individuality of 10000 Maniacs and Suzanne Vega, and the earthiness of Carol King and Fleetwood Mac. And that is exactly what KT Tunstall’s debut album, Eye To The Telescope is – a rare find. It’s kitchen table songs written from own experiences that examine and explore specific emotions, situations and stories, and it’s brilliant. While KT’s music falls into the “easy-listening”-category, her music is much more natural and organic, with a deep resonance honed by her studies both in Scotland and the USA, and frequent live gigs with her other band, Oi Va Voi. Eye To The Telescope features twelve songs of which all were either written or co-written by KT herself.

It’s an album filled with songs that sound so different from each other, but yet share a similar brilliance. Some of my favourites include Other Side Of The World (with its almost Sheryl Crow-like melancholy), Under The Weather (with its Katie Melua-like mellowness), the stunning and catchy Black Horse and the Cherry Tree (which reminds of some Shelby Lynne songs), Universe & U (that features a more raw, gravelly voice reminiscent of Macy Gray), Suddenly I See (a dreamy track that could easily have been a hit for a band like Crowded House), and the deliciously somber, bluesy and soulful Through The Dark – the perfect song to drown your sorrows to! KT Tunstall is yet another brilliant find this year. She has a voice that can reach all possible heights, yet never shows it off simply for the sake of demonstrating her own talents. She has soul and depth deep in her roots that show in her lyrics, and an edge to her delivery that similar artists in the same genre lack. Instrumentation is kept minimal, giving her songs even more texture, and adding to the sound that will become synonymous with the name KT Tunstall.
