Katie Melua Signs With Reservoir


Born in Kutaisi, Georgian SSR, Melua moved to the U.K. at the age of eight — first to Belfast, and then to London in 1999, where she still resides.

With her 2003 debut Call of The Search, her career took flight. Aged just 19, Melua saw the album hit No. 1 in the U.K., as did its followup, 2005’s Piece By Piece, which earned a brace of Brit Award nominations. Both LPs impacted the Billboard 200 chart.

“When I first signed Katie seventeen years ago, she was a very good but quite unassuming songwriter. Over the years she’s developed into one of incredible poise, thoughtfulness and potency,” comments Reservoir U.K. Head of Creative Charlie Pinder. “Her new album is one of the best pieces of music I’ve heard in a long time. It is a genuine thrill to be working with her.”

Melua could bag her best chart position in 13 years with her critically-acclaimed Album No. 8. It’s at No. 3 on the midweek U.K. chart.
