Kate Bush is one of the most successful and popular solo female performers to come out of England during the last few decades of the 20th century. As a girl, Catherine Bush studied piano and violin whilst attending St. Joseph’s Convent Grammar School in Abbey Wood, South London. By the time she was a teenager she was writing her own songs. Bush was signed to EMI Records at age 16, though the company made the decision to bring her along slowly. She studied dance, mime, voice and continued writing. By 1977, she was ready to begin her formal career, which she did with an original song “Wuthering Heights” based on material from Emily Bronte’s novel. The song would set a pattern for much of her future work, which was filled with literary and other external thematic allusions. “Wuthering Heights” rose to number one on the British charts when it was released in 1978 and Bush became an overnight sensation at the age of 19. Her debut album, The Kick Inside, a collection of material that she had written from 15 onwards reached number three and sold over a million copies in the UK. Bush has been nominated 13 times for British Phonographic Industry accolades and in 1987 she won a Brit Award for Best British Female Artist. During the course of her career she has also been nominated for three Grammy Awards. In 2002, she was recognised with an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
