KT Oslin

KT Oslin’s pair of late-80s albums, 80’s Ladies and This Woman, “came out of nowhere” (over five years after her career began) with a string of hits, most of which KT wrote with no other writers. She retired from touring in the early 90s and has returned to music only sporadically since then.
