I’ve always been a fan of British musicians, so I was excited to review KT Tunstall’s third album, Tiger Suit, which was released in stores on October 5th. Tunstall is a Scottish-born singer and songwriter with a number of albums under her proverbial belt.
I had heard of KT Tunstall before, but I’d never had the opportunity to listen to her music. I can’t believe that I’d never heard her music before, especially given the fact that she has had a Grammy-nominated song (“Black Horse and the Cherry Tree”) as well as other singles including “Suddenly I See,” Other Side of the World” and “Hold On”.
I’m not sure why, but I had assumed that Tiger Suit would be a very mellow album with a folk-music sound. I don’t think I could have been more wrong! Her first single, “Fade Like A Shadow”, was already a Top 20 hit and I found myself bopping along to the music (if I really like something I tend to bop – I should give music a “bop rating”!). I also liked “Uummannaq Song” and “Come On , Get In” because they showed a range in Tunstall’s musical abilities. Overall, I enjoyed the album. While I wouldn’t listen to every song all the time (I’ve never found an album where I liked every song on it), I enjoyed the range of music and I like her voice so I think I will be listening to it regularly!
