Suddenly I See

Movies are a great source for finding good music. The Devil Wears Prada (Widescreen Edition) is a nice little movie. The The Devil Wears Prada soundtrackis even better. The song at the beginning, Suddenly I See hooked me. A little research turned out a very nice Scottish/Chinese/Irish singer songwriter, KT Tunstall. Fortunately, this song is not on the soundtrack CD — Fortunately because then you can go buy the Eye To The Telescope CD, or better still the Eye to the Telescope (CD+DVD). KT has a great style playing live. She uses a loop machine to setup the percussion part of the track live at the beginning of a song, then play on top of it. Check out the DVD!

 KT grew up in St Andrews (golf course fame) Scotland to her adopted academic parents. Her first album, “eye to the Telescope”’s name pays homage to her father. She later found her birth mother who is Chinese and learn that her father is Irish, and is a folk musician.
