Kate Bush
Country
England
Profile
Since her debut album in 1978, Kate Bush has been one of the most distinctive and creative female singers ever to come out of England. She was signed to EMI at age 16 after being recommended by David Gilmour, and in 1978 (at age 19) her debut single "Wuthering Heights" reached #1 in four countries. She has maintained a large cult following ever since, typically releasing new material between periods of two to four years (from 1978 to 1993), though in 1995 she disappeared from public view altogether in order to devote time to her family. Her musical output since then has been infrequent but noteworthy.
