When singer-songwriter KT Tunstall appeared solo, armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar, a tambourine, and a loop pedal on Later... With Jools Holland
in 2004, the world was gifted one of the top bangers of the early aughts — “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree
.” Oh, and then she dropped the uplifting earworm “Suddenly I See
,” further cementing the Scottish-American performer as a purveyor of catchy pop-rock hits. Since her 2004 debut, Tunstall still sports the best bangs this side of the ’00s
and has six records under her belt, including 2018’s Wax
, which finds the 43-year-old tapping into dancier stylistic tendencies and a deeper channeling of her soaring rock voice.
KT Tunstall will perform at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8, at El Club; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-872-1000; elclubdetroit.com. Tickets are $25+.
