KT Tunstall Rocks On


Singer/songwriter KT Tunstall’s burst onto the music scene with her 2004 multi-platinum debut, Eye to the Telescope, which spawned the global hits “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See.” Her latest solo album, Nut, is the final entry of a trilogy of records addressing the concepts of soul, body, and mind. Touring has consumed much of 2023 for the Scottish musical virtuoso, which will include a handful of dates across Florida this September.
