Hello all you masters and mistress of words, today blog post comes curiosity one of my favorite artists “KT Tunstall” the ultimate Rockstar. In fact, when I reference “rockstar” as a good gesture, KT is the inspiration for that. For the past week I been dealing with the after affects of my manic-depressive episode or my “Chum”. Dammit man the struggle is real; in this manic state I find comfort in music. Going back to something so familiar and close to home it’s like chicken soup for the soul. I have a playlist that is comprised of my favorite artists with songs that have positive vibes or happy memories that brings me home. KT’s music is a big part of that.
This playlist has ten of KT’s songs that is heavy I mean heavy in rotation. With each manic episode, I go through stages of songs that helps pull me back. This go round these four songs I been listening to on the regular; “It Took Me So Long To Get Here, But I’m Here“, “Love Is An Ocean”, “Maybe It’s A Good Thing” and “The Other Side Of The World“ from her debut album Eye to the Telescope. For me these songs are a beacon of light shinning bright at the end of a dark tunnel. KT’s music has the power to heal and bring comfort. When you read the lyrics to “Love Is An Ocean” you think it’s beautiful poem but mirrored by KT’s angelic voice, you just get a since that things will be okay.
Limited time on my mind
Slipping through days
Staring at where I planted seed
Gotta get this within my grasp
I won’t get if I don’t ask
And certainly won’t receive
The spirit is altogether expectant
Of a transformation
A fascinating snap into a
Beautiful state of acceptance
Of the idea that
Of the idea that
Love is an ocean
I’m just a drop in the sea
It’s easy to forget it
But I’m not gonna let that happen to me
KT music is timeless, classic and meaningful. I would go as far to say that she’s up there with the greats like “Carole King” and “Joni Mitchell” yes her music is that important. It’s KT’s relatability, kindness that you can feel. Perfect example of that is “Maybe It’s a Good Thing” where she speaks about finding love. It’s not the act of finding love, it’s the act of finding inner peace. Learning how to love yourself and knowing self worth is important. Not settling for nothing less then that of what you put out. Focusing on the positive light of enlightenment which opens the mind, the spirit to receive true love. How many of us can relate to that?
All this choosing-wrongs losing ground
Often feeling lost, has brought it out
But I’m looking for a love, not a heartache
Yes I’m gonna take my time
Even though I know from the handshake
If I wanna make you mine
I am walking blind
Maybe that’s a good thing
Maybe that’s a good thing
That I can’t see what’s coming
And I don’t much care
Life will become one big stupid “Truth or Dare”
Maybe it’s a good thing
I can go on and on about the greatness of KT but instead I will leave you with favorite inspirational quotes of KT from varies interviews. Hopefully you will see what us fans have always known KT Tunstall is a true Rockstar!
“I grew up knowing I could have had a million different lives. It makes your life mysterious and your imagination go wild.”
“My songs examine and explore little specific emotions or situations or stories… They’re kitchen table songs, like a conversation between me and one other person. It’s almost like an alien has been sent to get emotional samples from human beings and put it all together on a record.“
“I’m not exactly sure what has driven me so hard… I’ve never questioned it. I’ve never had a back-up plan. I was never going to do anything else.“

I never listened to any of her music – going to have to get Alexa on that!
I LOVE KT Tunstall, and you have just inspired me to start listening to her again, I haven’t for a while. I do think that Eye to the Telescope is my favourite album (probably because it’s the first one I heard), but she just consistently produces amazing stuff, and you’re right – her lyrics are incredible. Her song ‘Hopeless’ was a favourite of mine too.
