Blue Note Napa presents world class entertainment outside at the Charles Krug Winery located at 2800 Main St, St Helena, CA 94574. This is a beautiful outdoor location on the grounds of Napa Valley’s Oldest Wine Estate.

The Blue Note features the biggest names in Jazz, Blues, R&B, Big Bands, Cabaret and more entertainment genres in a usually very intimate indoor seated club environment, but for now, will present the live experience outside.

Upon relocating to the west coast of the USA, she was accepted as one of six annual fellows for the Sundance Film Institute’s Composers Lab (hosted by George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch in Northern California) and has since scored music for short and feature films.She has also been awarded the Inspirational Artist gong at the Women In Music Awards and was chosen as the first ever female Grand Marshal (following the likes o Sir Sean Connery) to lead April 2018’s annual New York Tartan Week parade.

KT Tunstall

Since scoring a worldwide smash with her debut album ‘Eye ToThe Telescope’ in 2004, which went on to sell over 5 million copies, KT Tunstall has remained at the forefront of UK singer-songwriter talent. Over the next decade, three further critically acclaimed albums followed; ‘Drastic Fantastic’, ‘Tiger Suit’ and‘Invisible Empire//Crescent Moon’ in 2007, 2010 and 2013 respectively, keeping the platinum sales rolling and cementing the Scottish singer-songwriter’s reputation as a major recording talent, as well as a mesmerising live artist.Tunstall has toured the world many times over. She outsold every other female artist in the UK in 2005, won the 2006 Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist, won the Ivor Novello Best Song award for her huge, self-penned hit 'Suddenly I See’, and a Q award for Track of the Year. She also landed a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and lent her tunes to a host of movies and TV shows ('Suddenly I See', used in the iconic opening scene of Meryl Streep flick 'The Devil Wears Prada').2012 and the years that followed saw a seismic shift in outlook -the loss of her father, a divorce, and a relocation to Venice Beach, California.After a period of healing, soul-searching, and a change of scenery, 2016 hailed the arrival of the first of a trilogy of albums, the critically acclaimed UK top 10 album -'KIN'. The trilogy evokes, separately and in sequence, spirit, body and mind. With 'KIN' being her phoenix-from-the-ashes 'spirit' album, 2018 marked the second offering of that trilogy, the ‘body’ album ‘WAX’ -released October 5th.Speaking about her 6th studio album, Tunstall says of ‘WAX’ “I knew before I started writing that I wanted it to be an electric guitar record. It had to be visceral, about the physical, and the weight of that, and the obstacles of that. It’s a record about human-ness, which we so often just write off as ‘flaws’.”The title a nod to the viscous pungency of one of the body’s natural substances. “Wax evokes colonies of bees, candlelight, the material that the first long-playingrecords were made of”, she explains, “but more than that, wax is produced inside your own head. You unconsciously create it, and then weirdly that same basic substance has been used for centuries to make the most lifelike replicas of human beings. It has a life glow to it. It sticks to you. We have these strange, ancient connections and relationships with wax. How odd is it that the body produces all these substances from all these holes!” laughs this stoutly down-to-earth singer, songwriter and guitarist.Lead single “The River”, which was released August 23rd, opens with an arresting synth hook, before Tunstall’s powerful voice enters, emotionally taking centre stage. The track builds with strong rhythmic guitar textures, exploding into an anthemic chorus. Heavy guitar riffs are central to this track capturing the dirt, grit and physicality of the album. Tunstall explains, “it’s about wanting to escape the madness in the world, escaping bad relationships, and wanting to be washed clean -emancipation through nature”.Thesinglewasnamed one of Rolling Stone's‘Songs You Need To Know’.

KT says of the video:“My vision for the video was to create a mirror between a young, crazy-talented, bold little girl, and link that burgeoning energy to a band of warrioress women”. The track was playlisted byBBCRadio 2.The last few years have seen something of a creative rebirth for Tunstall.
