Katie Melua's original homeland is Georgia, which was then part of the Soviet Union. Her father, a heart specialist, brought her along with the rest of the family to Northern Ireland when she was eight and then to England six years later.
Melua attended the BRIT School for the Performing Arts in London. While performing at a showcase there, she caught the eye of songwriter and producer Mike Batt. The pair bonded over a mutual admiration for the late Eva Cassidy and decided to work together.
During their first proper session at Batt's recording studio the pair penned "Call Off The Search," which would become the title track of Melua's debut album. The LP was a smash hit selling 3.6 million copies worldwide.
