KT Tunstall Concert, Singapore


I just came back from the KT Tunstall concert, and what can I say, she was amazing, just as expected ;)
She was not only impressive, but so was her band, which consisted of Luke Bullen (also her finance) playing drums, Arnulf Linder playing bass guitar, Kenny Dickenson playing the trumpet and keyboard, Sam Lewis with lead guitar and Cat Sforza & Ami Richardson as the backing vocals.
They were a nicely knit band, that played very well must I say.
Also note that, KT Tunstall can SERIOUSLY sing well, and she sounds even better live. She can hit those beautiful high notes with her raspy tinged voice. Very impressive.

Good thing was the sound was also very good, and did not suffer like it may have suffered if it was performed in the Indoor Stadium. Luckily it was performed in the Suntec City Hall, where the acoustics of the music could be heard very well.
The place wasn't that full, and it was only a small show, but I could see other people enjoyed it just as much.
KT went through many good songs from her new album "Drastic Fantastic" as well as "Eye To The Telescope" with the lovable song which everyone knows- "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree". This song was the song that made her known and she performs all by herself with her looping device which she so nicely names "Wee Bastard" (very Scottish).

They did one cover song, "Walk Like An Egyptian" by the Bangles. Always a favourite.

KT herself, is also a very humourous and a down-to-earth woman. She isn't the arrogant/self-righteous star that so many stars are. She is still Scottish at heart, and very self-deprecated.
Everytime she says thank you, you know she means it because at a woman who is 32 years old, some may say she's late in the popularity scene. But that also means she's gained the experience and is well grounded, and has finally achieved the success she most definitely deserved.

Her jokes are funny and she can sing. She has a very good band, and she can play her guitar well. She is the lovable star that people of the public adore, because she's not vain and she knows what she's doing.

A true artist by right, this has been the best performance I've seen so far.

"We'll be back here definitely again!"

I definitely hope so :)
