祖母是中国人、身上流有东方血液的KT Tunstall，出生于苏格兰古镇圣安德鲁St.Andrew。对于自己被领养的出身背景，KT Tunstall的人生态度却依然很积极：“我很小的时候就常想像自己若被不同的人领养，便会有百万种不同生活方式的可能性，这样的出身背景凭添了我无穷的想像力，也更增添我生活的神秘色彩。”
The Scarlet Tulip EP is a really special body of work for me.” says KT. “It’s the first time since I was very young that I’ve set about recording just my voice with finger-picked guitar. 6 of the 7 songs came into being during the year I spent writing for ‘Tiger Suit’. (‘Hidden Heart’ was a song written for Bruce Parry’s ‘Survival’ project, to try and gain land protection for indigenous people of the Amazon.)
I felt a creative need to do something impulsive and autonomous, so this EP is partly to celebrate embarking on my first major solo tour, but also to get the songs out there into the ether as I’ve always felt there is something special about sending new songs off into the world as soon as they are done. There’s something magical about it.
It was recorded by my husband and drummer, Luke Bullen, in our solar-powered studio in the woods in the English countryside.”
