Katie Melua

 


Katie Melua is a British singer.  Her most well-known song is  Nine Million Bicycles (click here for a YouTube clip of it) – which is a really catchy little number.  But I got the album, Piece by Piece,  and found that it had heaps of great songs on it.  Don't you find that some albums only have 1 or 2 great tracks and you feel a bit cheated having bought the whole album?  Mind you the young people these days just download individual tracks so the concept of an album that hangs together as a body of work may end up disappearing.
But, back to Katie – I realised I hardly knew what she looked like even though I've listened to her tons of times.  She turns 30 in September – good luck with that!
Katie was born in the old USSR but moved to Britain when she was 9.  According to Wikipedia, Melua is an adrenaline junkie – enjoying things like paragliding and roller coasters – I'll leave that to her, thank you very much!
