Katie Melua: ‘My spectacular husband helped put dark times behind me’

Katie Melua praised her “spectacular” husband, former motorbike racer James Toseland, for being her “rock”.
The Closest Thing to Crazy singer was hospitalised in 2010 after suffering a nervous breakdown. The star met her husband, former World Superbike champion-turned-musician James Toseland, the following year, and has since recovered with the help of anti-depressants and therapy, and acknowledging her limitations.
The couple married in 2012 and Katie told British newspaper the London Evening Standard she is grateful to her husband, now that the “dark times” are behind her.
“I am all well and fit now. Those dark times are behind me,” she told the publication. “It has a lot to do with the fact I have been married to a spectacular man. The music has helped too, it has been a real soul feeder.”
The 32-year-old, whose first two albums both reached number one in the U.K,, made her comments as it was announced she will perform two intimate gigs on 25 and 26 July at London’s Cadogan Hall as part of the Amazon Prime Live Events series.
The digital giant is putting on gigs featuring major artists in smaller, intimate locations which are free for its subscribers. Non-subscribers can buy tickets, which go on sale on Thursday (25May17) from Amazon’s ticket website for $97 (£75).
Blondie, Texas and Alison Moyet will also be performing in the series.
