Kate Bush

Real Name:
Catherine Bush
Profile:
Highly distinctive singer/songwriter, born July 30th, 1958. Bush was signed to EMI at age 16 after David Gilmour heard her work and helped her produce a demo tape.

In 1978 (at age 19), her debut single "Wuthering Heights" reached #1 in four countries. She has maintained a large cult following ever since. Bush's most prolific creative period was between 1978 to 1993, with a release of new material and new albums every few years. After the 1993 release of "The Red Shoes," she began an extended break from public view, and devoted time to her family.

"Aerial," Bush's first album in 12 years, was released in November 2005, preceded by single "King Of The Mountain". In 2011, two Kate Bush albums were released: "Director's Cut," a reworking of several songs from "The Sensual World" and "The Red Shoes," and "50 Words for Snow," an album of new music.

In 2014, Bush performed in a series of live concerts in London, her first concerts in decades. All performances of the show, called "Before The Dawn," sold out in minutes.

She was appointed Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to music.

The British chanteuse first came into the spotlight when she was only 16, after a friend of her father's took some of her recordings to Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour. He was so captivated by otherworldly visions that he financed a series of demo recordings that led to a rather atypical record deal with EMI. In an unusual move, the U.K. entertainment monolith decided not to record the eccentric singer immediately; instead they financed a series of lessons to improve her already-inventive writing style, as well as her singing and dancing.
It was clear the lessons paid off: Bush's very first single, "Wuthering Heights," a three minute recap of Emily Bronte's disquieting gothic classic, topped the U.K. charts in 1978, making her an overnight sensation and sending her subsequent album, The Kick Inside, to the No. 3 position, selling over a million copies in the U.K. alone. Her next album, Lionheart, reached No. 6 on the charts, and while it wasn't quite the sensation that its predecessor was, the record established her as one of the more inventive and risk-taking artists extant. Her spectral beauty, excessive stage shows -- which often contained nearly 20 costume changes -- extravagant mime work and over-the-top set designs spawned her long run (which continues to this day) as an object of cult devotion.
In 1980, Bush returned to the upper reaches of the charts with a more experimental offering, Never For Ever, which found the singer not only arranging her own material, but also co-producing the album. It yielded three hits ("Breathing," "Army Dreamers" and the ethereal "Babooshka"), and it displayed a compositional density and complexity not found in her earlier work. The Dreaming (1982) took her into a new realm altogether, moving the singer out of mainstream pop and into darker terrain. The self-produced offering was far less melodic, with jagged rhythms and atonal chants. It was clear from this point on that Bush would never again be pigeonholed as merely a charming, ethereal singer. Hounds of Love (1985) reinforced that: it finds the singer at the peak of her powers, showcasing her burgeoning talents as a writer, producer and singer, as she weaves Arthurian legend with Jungian psychology, creating what would be her master work.
After such a prodigious effort, Bush took an extended hiatus and didn't return until 1989, with The Sensual World, a wonder-filled yet shambolic affair, what with Celtic harps, whips, uilleann pipes and a soliloquy from James Joyce's Ulysses woven into the title song. The album showed Bush to be a brave, provocative and atavistic artist. Unfortunately, Bush's output has since dwindled. Her only release in recent years was 1993's The Red Shoes.
Ostensibly christened after the movie of the same name, the album was dedicated to her mother, who had just died. While emotions run high on the collection, it is nowhere near as strong as some of her earlier stuff.
...Alan partridge loves her!!!!
