Still hoping for a return to the live stage in July after 14 months, he has constantly kept the kettle boiling with updates, performances from home and even new merchandise.

The new series is called the Smokehead Sessions and will run from throughout June in half hour segments and all containing an appreciation of Islay malt whiskies.

It is a match that marries well with his brand of steel and electric punk fired blues in a style he has made his own across the world.

A young Amy saw KT in Aberdeen when she was just 13 and has always seen her as a role model.

Read Me Write was a collaboration with producer Angus Lyon and this led to tours in the US, Canada, Germany, and Ireland but now hopes to get live again this year. Classically trained and a multi-instrumentalist she has even played at the famous Lotus Temple in New Delhi and with this new release will surely progress further.

KT Tunstall guests on a new release Dear John – Concert For War Child UK available next week.
