Katie Melua: Profiles from the Illustrations

Katie Melua, 2012. By Travis Simpkins

     It doesn't seem like 10 years have passed since Katie Meua's young, angelic voice was first recorded. She is still fresh, ever-evolving in style and development, and beautiful as ever. Keep it up, Katie!
     Her website nicely states, "When Georgian-born Katie Melua signed with Mike Batt's Dramatico Records in September 2002, no-one could have imagined that by the release of her third album, Pictures, she would be the biggest-selling UK-based, female artist in the world that year. Her first two albums, 'Call Off The Search' and 'Piece By Piece' both became international number ones, and the story was to continue, after an exciting, record-breaking rollercoaster ride involving several massive world tours and many special moments - like Katie playing on stage for Nelson Mandela with her idols, Queen, or dining at Buckingham Palace with the real Queen and the American Ambassador."
