edp2964-012-mf_medium.jpgMulti-platinum Scottish-born Relentless/Virgin Records singer/songwriter KT TUNSTALL will return to the live U.S. stage this summer, with a month of dates scheduled, many of them with acclaimed Zoe/Rounder artist Martha Wainwright.

In this round of touring, Tunstall’s show will highlight the way her vibrant and versatile music “distinguish(es) herself from the herd by demonstrating a wealth of musical possibilities,” as a Boston Herald reviewer put it a few weeks ago. The artist notes: “I’m very excited to be bringing my vintage electric guitars over to the U.S. for this month, and mixing the acoustic roots of Eye to the Telescope with the more complex driving sounds of Drastic Fantastic.”

Tunstall’s European and North American acoustic spring 2008 tour, dubbed “The Campfire Tour,” “was a huge success,” Tunstall says. “It taught me to enjoy the subtleties of the set as much as the pedal-to-the-metal foot-stompers.” The Boston Globe agreed, praising “Tunstall’s easy way with a melody,” and noting that she had “no trouble getting comfy and generating warmth during a sweet and sassy 90-minute set.” The Boston Herald continued:   the “Scottish firecracker(‘s) unplugged set yielded marvelous results. Her four-piece band improvised ingeniously.”
