SINGER-songwriter and guitarist KT Tunstall will make her first-ever South African appearance at the Parklife festival in Cape Town. Parklife, described as an urban lifestyle music experience, will feature headlining acts from abroad as well as some of the country’s top local artists.
Tunstall’s music career launched in 2004 after performing live on the renowned British music television show Later…with Jools Holland. Her song, “Black Horse and The Cherry Tree”, became one of the most-played songs of 2005 in the UK, later gaining her both commercial and critical success.
Her debut album, Eye to the Telescope (2004), was certified double platinum and was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize that year. She has also since released Drastic Fantastic (2007), Tiger Suit (2010) and Invisible Empire//Crescent Moon (2013).
Her latest album has been hailed by some critics as her best musical tome to date.
In 2006, she won an Ivor Novello Award for her hit song, “Suddenly I See”, and a Brit award for Best Female Solo Artist. She also received a European Border Breakers award during this time. In addition to having sold more than four million albums, she is known for her killer live performances.
