Well known singer-songwriter, KT Tunstall released her 6th studio album“WAX,” out now via Rostrum Records. “WAX,” landed at #30 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart and the single “The River” sits at #19 on Billboard’s AAA Songs Chart.
KT’s latest body of work is a trilogy of albums following the themes of soul, body, and mind. Released in 2016, the first album ‘KIN’, covers the theme of the soul and received rave reviews. The second album in the trilogy ‘WAX’ was released in October 2018 and focuses on the body and our complex relationship with physicality. ‘WAX’ was featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist in a dozen countries worldwide, receiving critical acclaim from both national publications and specialist music outlets in both the UK and USA.
Recently KT has been awarded the Inspirational Artist gong at the Women In Music Awards.

In May 2018 she and Mike McCready, of legendary multi-million-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.
In support of her new music, KT has spent last year and this year touring worldwide. She will be making an appearance at one of UK’s biggest festival Glastonbury along with a show with John Butler Trio and Hall & Oates.

Scotland born and now Los Angeles based, KT Tunstall, emerged with her 2004 classic debut Eye To The Telescope spawning such international hits as “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See”, which won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song in 2006.

In 2016, KT returned with her vibrant album KIN. After a period of healing, soul-searching, and a change of scenery, 2016 hailed the arrival of the first of a trilogy of albums, the critically acclaimed UK top 10 album – ‘KIN’. KT has described that record, reviewed as a “powerpop gem” by Rolling Stone, as the “full-blooded, spiritual follow-up” to her multi-platinum debut album. The trilogy evokes, separately and in sequence, spirit, body, and mind. With ‘KIN’ being her phoenix-from-the-ashes ‘spirit’ album, 2018 will mark the second offering of that trilogy – her 6th studio album, WAX her ‘body’ album – full details of which are to be revealed later this summer.
