Music Review and Giveaway: KT Tunstall Tiger Suit (Ends 10/27) CLOSED

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 Posted by Dina N


KT Tunstall is a Scottish-born singer and songwriter. I was not familiar with this Grammy-nominated musician until I heard her latest album, Tiger Suit. And I am so glad I did.

This new CD from the multi-platinum singer was just released on October 5. Tiger Suit includes 11 songs, including  the first single "Fade Like A Shadow" that is already a Top 20 radio hit. All tracks feature catchy melodies and KT's amazing, expressive voice. My first favorite was the first song I heard - Uummanaq Song. Then I realized I love the entire album and can't really single out just one fave. 

All songs are written by KT Tunstall, the lyrics as remarkable as the music and vocals. She had me dancing and singing along, and looking up her earlier work.
Tiger Suit is KT's third album. Her previous hit songs include the Grammy-nominated "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," "Suddenly I See," Other Side of the World" and "Hold On".

You can connect with KT Tunstall on Twitter and Facebook.  

KT will be on tour this fall, so make sure to check her out if she's performing near you.
