New Portrait Illustration: Katie Melua (Singer/Songwriter)

Katie Melua, 2012. By Travis Simpkins

     It was in Ireland, 2004, when I crossed paths with Katie Melua. She had a certain degree of popularity then, but nowhere near the amount of adulation and fame she has amongst European audiences now. There, across the sea, she is a bonafide Star. Somehow, American audiences have yet to fully appreciate her music, but that is sure to change. Katie is a sweetheart, gregarious and kind, and her lovely voice and well-timed music are a perfect reflection of her personality.
