What's All About Katie All About?

Welcome to All About Katie. This site is an appreciation of Katie Melua - the beautiful and talented singer-songwriter with the caramel eyes and sublime voice, and the finest interpreter of a song I have ever heard.

It is also a repository of information about her music, DVDs, videos, tour dates, images, and anything else of interest to her fans. I have put my heart and soul into this project. Katie has given me so much and this is my way of saying thank-you. I hope Ketefans all over the world will find something interesting here about our favourite artist. Enjoy!
Any opinions expressed here are mine, not Katie's!!

Katie seems to be bouncing back and forth between Georgia and England non stop at the moment. No idea where she gets the energy from. Unless she's eating all these berries...

Hard to keep track of Katie at the moment, she's posting from all over the place! It looks like she is back in Tbilisi again from this post yesterday, an absolutely gorgeous black and white shot of her.

Is this where Katie is going to record her next album??

12.06.18   >   Has Katie let something slip?

I tried playing detective on that Instagram story Katie recently posted, hoping she might have inadvertently let some new music out of the bag. Of course, Katie isn't that stupid. She is looking at sheet music for "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Still interesting though: maybe she is going to include a studio version of it on the next album. Just remember, you heard it here first!

11.06.18   >   Katie on Instagram

So, hold the front page! Katie is heading off to Georgia to record. This adds weight to my suspicion that she would be working with the Gori Women's Choir once again. That's only speculation on my part, mind you, but since she lives close to a recording studio in London you can't help but wonder why she'd go all the way to Georgia and then not use the GWC. She's touring with them later in the year, remember!

Length:

3:06

Trivia:

The song was written by Katie and Mike Batt in jest because of the innuendo in the title phrase. Very Carry On! Though how the phrase cropped up during a conversation about scarves whilst on a train journey is anyone's guess. Katie wrote the chorus and Mike the verses.
