‘Ultimate Collection’ commemorates the 15 years since Katie Melua released her debut album, ‘Call Off The Search’, which topped the charts and set her on course to become the best selling female artist in the UK and Europe of 2006. The album contains 30 songs from her 7 studio albums, as well as her cover of ‘Fields Of Gold’, which she recorded in 2017 as the Children In Need single, and two brand new recordings – ‘Diamonds Are Forever’, synonymous with Shirley Bassey and James Bond; and the Simon and Garfunkel classic, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.
Born in Ireland and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Heather O’Neill is a modern day gypsy, having lived in 18 other locations before the age of 30. The experience enabled her to have a deeply insightful world-view, which naturally moved over into her music. Her latest tracks, ‘Lady Blue’, and ‘Transmute’, evince her style, which is a provocative blend of singer-songwriter blues, infused with elements of soul, rock, and folk.
