Katie Melua: UK's easy listening darling
Moving from Belfast to attend Croydon's BRIT School in her teens, Georgian-born singer songwriter Katie Melua caught the attention of producer Mike Batt, who immediately signed her to his Dramatico record label. She released her debut album Call Off the Search in 2003, buoyed by jazz-inflected pop single "The Closest Thing to Crazy" and "I Think It's Going to Rain Today" (penned by Pixar composer Randy Newman). The LP went six times platinum in the UK and achieved similar feats across Europe, making her one of the most successful recording artists of the new millennium.
Her follow-up records brought her more success, although not quite matching the astounding accomplishments of her debut. Sophomore LP Piece by Piece hit number one in the UK album charts off the back of smash hit single "Nine Million Bicycles" (although the track has been slated by scientists for miscalculating the size of the universe. Most astronomers agree we're more likely to be 13.7 billion lightyears to the edge as opposed to 12). Her 2010 album The House, a surprising collaboration with techno virtuoso William Orbit, represented her most daring artistic development yet - and there's a lot more to come from this record-breaking singer! It won't be long until the easy listening superstar hits the road again, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest tour dates and don't miss your chance to catch her live when she next visits the UK: buy Katie Melua tickets at StubHub today.
