KT Tunstall first gained attention with a 2004 live solo performance of her song "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" on Later with Jools Holland.
The name of her debut album, Eye to the Telescope was inspired by her childhood experiences at her father's physics laboratory at University of St. Andrews. Released in 2004, this album launched her music career. That album inspired her nomination for the Mercury Prize in 2005, BRIT Award, for Best British Live Act and BRIT Award for Best Breakthrough Act in 2006, and Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2007.
Her personal story is beyond incredible, Tunstall was born to a half-Chinese, half-Scottish mother, who was from Hong Kong, and an Irish father and given up for adoption. As it turns out, her adoptive family in Scotland had zero musical background-which didn't matter at all to KT, as the music comes from deep inside her soul.
The international recording artist and performer, joins John & BeiBei on The Bridge to share her journey, lessons learned and music.
