After a sold-out show at Avalon last year, KT Tunstall will be back in L.A. performing at The Wiltern. Tunstall burst onto the scene in 2006 with her gritty debut album, Eye to the Telescope, which spawned three hit singles: the Grammy-Award nominated “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” “Suddenly I See” and “Other Side of the World.” Fueled by these tracks and multimedia exposure, Eye was certified platinum in the U.S. with worldwide sales exceeding 3.5 million copies. Tunstall’s follow up to Eye, Drastic Fantastic, was released by Virgin Records in September 2007. It showcases the 31-year-old’s growth as both a songwriter and musician on songs like the thumping “Hold On,” the rollicking “Saving My Face,” the jazz-inflected “Someday Soon” and the frisky pop gem “I Don’t Want You Now.” “I wanted to be braver,” Tunstall says of the album. “I wanted to push the musicality. You can’t let previous success scare you away from moving on.” Tunstall’s formula for her latest album proved to be a success as Drastic Fantastic debuted at #9 on the Top 200 album chart with “Hold On” hitting #1 in the AAA single format._
