KT Tunstall puts a “Tiger” in her tank

KT Remember KT Tunstall? Back in 2006, her music seemed ubiquitous. Her debut album, “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” which climbed to No. 3 on the UK music charts, also proved her a hitmaking machine on these shores. “American Idol” finalist Katharine McPhee sang the catchy title track on the mega broadcast, introducing the Scottish singer-songwriter to a whole new legion of U.S. fans. Her music was subsequently featured in several primetime shows, including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “90210,” “Smallville” and “Cold Case,” and her “Suddenly I See” provided a spunky intro for the hit film, “The Devil Wears Prada.”

She also represented a refreshing (and tabloid-free) departure from the mostly R&B-influenced Brit pack: Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Corinne Bailey Ray, Lilly Allen et al — more Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge than Mariah Carey or Christine Aguilera.
