Katie Melua Biography

In the summer of 2003, aged just 17 and still studying at the Brit School of Performing Arts in leafy Surrey, no-one, least of all Katie, would have predicted what the next few years would hold for the teenager. 4 years later, Katie has sold more than 7.5 million albums becoming, in 2006, the year's best selling British female in the world along the way.

In between her overseas travel Katie recorded her new album, 'Piece By Piece', which was released in Europe on September 26th 2005. The album comprises more self-penned songs including the title track as well as a cover of the 1987 Cure hit 'Just Like Heaven' that Katie recorded for a new DreamWorks film starring Reese Witherspoon. The first single, 'Nine Million Bicycles', preceded the album release and gave Katie her highest UK single chart entry at number 5. 1 week later and Katie entered the UK album charts at number 1 and Europe swiftly followed with the album reaching 1 in Norway, Denmark and Holland, 2 in Ireland, 2 in Iceland, 3 in South Africa, 4 in Poland and 2 in Germany giving an overall chart position of 2 on the Billboard European Top 100 Chart.

It is fair to say that 2006 was yet another extraordinary year for 22 year old Katie. In addition to the awards nominations, Katie had a Dutch tulip named in her honour, toured America coast to coast, raced at 160mph round Grand Prix circuit Silverstone, flew a plane, launched Save The Children's 'Rewrite The Future' campaign, made the headlines with a Guinness World Record for the deepest concert when she performed 303 meters beneath the North Sea in the leg of a gas rig and was awarded the World Music Award for Britain's Biggest Selling Female. Whilst in 2004 and 2005 Katie was the greatest selling female artist in Britain, in 2006 Katie was the highest selling European female artist in the world selling more than 3 million copies of her second album 'Piece By Piece'.

Awarded the Golden Camera Award for International Pop Artist at the start of 2007 Katie was presented with the Echo Award for International Female Artist in March 2007.

October 2007 will see the release of Katie's third album 'Pictures' - a record that will delight her legions of fans, confirm Katie's status as a unique and remarkable vocalist, and reveal the third chapter in what is destined to be a long musical career.
