A prodigy of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, Londoner Kate Bush signed her first record contract (with EMI) at aged 16, but didn't releaseher first record, The Kick Inside, until four years later, in 1978. The album was a huge success, mostly due to the surprise hit single "Wuthering Heights," topping the UK charts upon its release. Herdistinctive three-octave voice, literary-based lyrics and eclectic personality somehow found a niche in the late '80s pop scene and made her acelebrity. Her second release, Lionheart, followed the same year, along with heavy promotion and a world tour. This aspect of business made Bushuncomfortable and this, coupled with her dissatisfaction at what she felt was a rushed album, prompted Bush to make it the only tour of hercareer. Bush slowly began to withdraw from public life, taking more and more responsibility for her own output. Through the '80s, she developed aslow and painstaking approach to recording, only emerging from her private world for sporadic album releases, which became less and lesscommon throughout the late '80s and '90s. In November 2005, Bush released the double-CD Aerial, her first original album since 1993's The Red Shoes, peaking at #3 in theUK Album Charts. The first single from the album, "King of the Mountain," was released in September 2005 and peaked at #4 in the UKsingles charts. In 2011, she released her most recent studio album, 50 Words for Snow. « hide
