KT Tunstall's challenging decision
KT Tunstall believes signing a record deal was the "most challenging decision" she ever made.
The Scottish folk rocker - who had pursued her interest in electronic music up until being signed as a singer/songwriter in 2002 - admitted while she was initially determined to remain an independent artist, she realised at the age of 27 she wasn't making any money.
She said: "I think signing my record deal in 2002 was probably the most challenging decision I ever made. I spent my 20s determined to remain an independent musician. I always had this awful feeling I would be signing over my creativity to people I couldn't trust.
"But by the time I was 27, it was apparent I would have to change my strategy if I was going to make a living from music."
The 'Suddenly I See' singer - whose husband Luke is the drummer in her band - also revealed touring together has taught the couple the art of "explosive fights".
She added to Stylist magazine: "I love the fact that we can pursue our own paths independently but can do it on the same stage. But living on a bus with 10 other people, as a couple, can be testing.
"It definitely teaches you a few things, like how to sort out your sh*t quickly, so we've learned to have fast, explosive fights! Before you know it, they're over and we can move on."
KT's third album, 'Tiger Suit' is released on September 27.Posted on 23 Sep 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
