Two years ago KT Tunstall pulled the plug on playing music professionally. “I stopped. I gave up. I didn’t want to do it anymore.” Ten years had passed since her multi-platinum debut album, Eye To The Telescope was released, she’d lived a decade in the limelight, released three more critically acclaimed albums, but she was utterly burnt out.

Trading her UK home for Venice Beach, she tucked herself away in a salty-aired sanctuary to quietly immerse herself in the craft of film scoring. Her plan worked at first, but an unyielding urge to pick up the guitar and write riffs echoed in and very quickly took over her plan for solitude.

Fast forward to September 2016 and we have Tunstall’s album, KIN, born-and-bred in LA. Fueled by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Tame Impala and Devendra Banhart, she sees KIN as the long-awaited, full-blooded follow-up to her debut album years ago.  

“It’s rambunctious, anti-slick, pro-wild, psychedelic emotional pop. I’ve finally cut myself free from a disempowering, disabling search for approval. I’m being honest, and I’m having a load of fun.”

Join KT Tunstall and KCRW for a very special and intimate evening in Old Pasadena at One Colorado on Saturday, December 10th.
