O seu segundo álbum foi lançado em 2008 com o nome de "Piece By Piece". Nele ouvimos uma das suas músicas mais famosas “Nine Million Bicycles”, seu videoclipe é um dos melhores trabalhos feitos por Katie, onde ela é arrastada pelo chão e passeia por diversos lugares do Mundo, chegando até o céu. “I Cried For You”, uma de suas canções mais tristes e “Thank You, Star”, música que injustamente não se tornou single, estão presentes no repertório ao lado da “On The Road Again” e da faixa título “Piece By Piece”. “Spider’s Web” completa a sequência de canções escolhidas do segundo álbum para integrar o disco.

"Pictures", seu terceiro álbum sai em 2013, mostrou pequenas mudanças na sua sonoridade. O blues ainda estava lá, firme e forte, com “Pictures” Katie Melua aos 21 anos, já conquistou um estatuto ímpar na cena internacional. Neste disco assume-se com uma vocalista única, cuja presença e interpretação não têm igual. "If The Lights Go Out", "Mary Pickford", "If You Were A Sailboat", são 3 dos 12 temas de grande sucesso deste álbum.

"The House" o quarto álbum sai em maio de 2013 e depois de vários anos na companhia de Mike Batt como produtor, Katie entra numa nova fase da sua carreira.

O álbum resultante, intitulado "The House" foi descrito com uma sonoridade épica, dramática e aventureiro e, ao mesmo tempo atraente para os fãs de Katie, prometendo também alcançar uma nova audiência.

Atualmente é casada com James Toseland, e está de volta a antiga banda em que fez parte, HouseLife', agora formada por Katie, Josh Devine, Ashton Lake, Bridget Mendlr e Leon Thomas II.

Citações Katie Melua

„I am proud to now be a British citizen.“

— Katie Melua
Context: As a family, we have been very fortunate to find a happy lifestyle in this country and we feel we belong. We still consider ourselves to be Georgian, because that is where our roots are, and I return to Georgia every year to see my uncles and grandparents, but I am proud to now be a British citizen. About becoming a British citizen.

„Because the line between,
Wrong and right,
Is the width of a thread,
From a spider's web.
The piano keys are black and white,
But they sound like a million colours in your mind.“

— Katie Melua

„I've been born in the wrong bloody decade!“

— Katie Melua
Context: When I was 14 or 15 I was into the whole Spice Girls and I was a huge fan, but two years ago I heard The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell and I was like - fucking hell, I've been born in the wrong bloody decade!

„She was really excited about it but quite nervous because she felt that everyone was hyping it up a bit and she just wanted to bring out an album. You know, she's a musician“

— Katie Melua
Context: Of course [Kate Bush] is still relevant. I wasn't actually in the country when her music first came out, so I only discovered it three or four years ago. What's amazing is that something like "Wuthering Heights" still sounds so different. I actually saw her about nine months ago, we were just passing at an industry event and I went up to her and said I was a big fan and asked her about the new record. She was really excited about it but quite nervous because she felt that everyone was hyping it up a bit and she just wanted to bring out an album. You know, she's a musician. About meeting Kate Bush.

„I really began to miss family and friends not to mention baked beans!“

— Katie Melua
Context: I spend eight to nine months working abroad and cram in a holiday when I have the odd week off. This year, three of those months were spent in America playing gigs with my band, so we got to visit all kinds of places from Arizona to New York. After a few weeks, I really began to miss family and friends not to mention baked beans!

„My hairdresser calls me the Romanian window cleaner“

— Katie Melua
Context: I've never had paparazzi follow me and I rarely get recognised. I dress like a tramp when I'm not working. My hairdresser calls me the Romanian window cleaner. That's just the way I am.

„She's the perfect good girl in the middle of the road.“

— Katie Melua
Context: [Melua] makes music that's easy on the ear and even easier on the brain. She's the perfect good girl in the middle of the road. I'm not keen to make things too easy for anyone. Thea Gilmore

„I literally thought when I was 15 that I was a musical genius and I could change the world, but in fact you're not and you can't and you don't, and that realisation is almost heartbreaking.“

— Katie Melua
Context: The last verse [In My Secret Life] completely got to me, about how we all have great ideals but in reality we end up conforming, following everyone else. We want to be stronger so we lead that life inside, thinking of ourselves as these great brave souls. I literally thought when I was 15 that I was a musical genius and I could change the world, but in fact you're not and you can't and you don't, and that realisation is almost heartbreaking.

„I guess you have to try things once in a while... just once“

— Katie Melua
Context: It's so funny because when you do smoke weed and write a song, you're like, 'Yeah, this is brilliant, this is excellent!' - and the next morning you go back and often find that really it's not very good at all... I've never done anything like acid or cocaine and I hope I don't. But I guess you have to try things once in a while... just once. I think you have to be very wary of falling into that trap of getting addicted. About smoking cannabis.

„I get guilty when I spend money on silly things like clothes and stuff“

— Katie Melua
Context: I get guilty when I spend money on silly things like clothes and stuff... Having experienced a completely different extreme of wealth, and I don't mean me being poor or rich, I mean knowing that 40 quid that gets spent on a pair of shoes could go a long way for a family in Georgia for a week or even a month, having experienced that, you're a bit more [guilty].

„Buying books is probably my biggest vice“

— Katie Melua
Context: Buying books is probably my biggest vice when I travel. I bought a great one in America called An Incomplete Education, which covers everything from fashion to philosophy in quite a humorous way. It’s a bluffer’s guide, but pretty extensive. Because I never went to university, it’s my attempt to bone up on subjects I don’t know much about.

„But a musician or someone who's into music is different.“

— Katie Melua
Context: I don't think I could see myself with someone who's famous. I don't like the lifestyle and everything it stands for. Too superficial. That attention is too much. For me to go home and be surrounded by that sounds like a fucking nightmare. But a musician or someone who's into music is different.
