Critically-acclaimed, Scottish alternative pop singer/songwriter, KT Tunstall will be in concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Two years ago, KT Tunstall thought she was done with music. Not done, as in she’d never again play guitar or sing, but done playing professionally, at least for the foreseeable future. She was utterly burnt out. She put her stuff in storage, sold all of her property in the UK, and started again in a little house in Venice Beach, CA. After nearly a year of a quiet life, like a little imp waiting in the wings for Tunstall to get really comfortable in her state of blissed out California calm, one day the urge to rock began to return. And once it took hold, it just wouldn’t let go. Almost against her own will, Tunstall found herself picking up her guitar and writing riffs. And they came, one after another after another after another.
The music that Tunstall has written since moving to California is, she says, the most impassioned and inspired of her life; these songs were fueled by the openness of desert spaces and wild ocean cliffs, the intimacy of being snowbound in Taos, New Mexico during winter writing retreats, and the freedom and mystery of driving too fast on canyon roads late at night listening to Neil Young and Tame Impala at top volume. Above all, they felt like they had to be written.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
