Kate Bush Biography
Highly distinctive singer/songwriter, born July 30th, 1958. 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 2 to 4 years (from 1978 to 1993), though in 1995 she disappeared from public view altogether in order to devote time to her family.
November 2005 saw the release of the album "Aerial", her first album in 12 years. It was preceded by the single "King Of The Mountain". At the time she stated that "Aerial" was not meant to be her last work and that she wished to continue writing and recording.
She was appointed Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to music.
