Katie Melua

Plucked from music school obscurity by songwriter/producer Mike Batt, Katie Melua quickly became the highest-selling female musician in the U.K., a feat that owed much of its success to her wildly popular 2003 debut. Melua was born in Soviet Georgia in 1984 and later moved to Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her family pulled up stakes several years later and relocated to London, where Melua entered the B.R.I.T. School for the Performing Arts & Technology. The record industry-funded school had a habit of graduating talented artists like Floetry, and Melua became its next success when a 2003 showcase caught the attention of Batt, who'd been looking for a vocalist capable in both jazz and blues styles.

Call Off the Search, her debut album, was issued in the U.K. in November 2003 by Batt's own label, Dramatico Records. A comfortable, tasteful blend of jazz vocals, pop style, and adult contemporary sway, the album featured two cuts penned by Melua (including a tribute to one of her biggest influences, Eva Cassidy), as well as covers of material from John Mayall, Randy Newman, and the James Shelton classic "Lilac Wine." The single "Closest Thing to Crazy" hit number one in December, and by January of the following year, Call Off the Search had gone platinum (300,000 units in the U.K.). It continued selling copies for years, eventually going platinum six times.

Gigs in Europe followed, and in May 2004 Melua made her way to the U.S. for a round of club dates in support of the album's domestic release. She achieved even greater success with her 2005 follow-up, Piece by Piece, a heady blend of worldbeat and jazz-pop that topped both the international and British charts before setting its sights on the U.S. market in 2006. The similarly jazz-inflected Pictures followed a year later, and the concert recording Live at the O² Arena appeared in 2009. In 2010, Melua delivered the studio effort The House, which widened her sound with production from techno mastermind William Orbit. Two years later, she returned with the orchestral pop album Secret Symphony, featuring arrangements by longtime producer Batt. In 2013, Melua and Batt collaborated once again with the similarly orchestral-leaning Ketevan. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

Love her sound, crispness and diction; have to take a listen to her soundtrack song to 'Miss Potter' - about Beatrix Potter - 'When you taught me how to dance'. Great song and movie

I have never heard anyone sing like her before. She's definitely unique. Her voice is stikingly beautiful and versatile, not bland or common. I enjoy the very different songs she sings. Some singers sound the same in all of their songs, but not this artist.

Beautiful voice, but I don't really like this cover of Just like Heaven.

she's sensational. her Just Like Heaven is what The Cure would have done, if not for the fact they were roudy guys.

This song from the Cure is not easily remade however, Katie pulls it off added a new dimesion to it!

Voice is bland and common, ten cent a dozen talent if you can call that talent. Nothing is moving or striking vocally. The music on the other hand is sultry and sensous.

A friend of mine in Stuttgart, Germany turned me on to Katie M. while I was visiting a couple of years ago. She was getting a lot of radio play there, and he had a copy of Piece By Piece. He made me a copy before I returned to the states and I've been playing it for people ever since.

Excellent sound. Nothing like a good cigar, Irish Whiskey and a good tune from Katie Melua.

This is certainly a song that warmed my blood. I know artists hate to be compared but her voice reminds me of a young Maria Muldaur, which in my opinion is a great compliment. I really look forward to watching her mature as an artist over the years. Her talent has what it takes to endure over time!

I have always been told that music is a language that speaks to the soul and connects you to the world painted by the artist. After listening, you either move forward or retract but you must move. She has the power to move you forward!
