Biography of Kate Bush
Kate Bush is an English singer, songwriter, and record producer. She is best known for her hits “Wuthering Heights,” “The Man with the Child in His Eyes,” “Running Up That Hill,” and “Don’t Give Up,” which she sang with Peter Gabriel.
She has twelve studio albums to her credit, including the 1987 Brit Award for Best British Female Artist, and in 2013 she was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for her contributions to music during the Queen’s New Year’s Honors List.
Dr. Robert Bush and his wife Hannah Daly have given birth to the daughter of Kate. Having two older brothers, John and Paddy, she was raised in a Roman Catholic household.
At the age of three, Kate’s mother was an amateur Irish dancer and her father was an accomplished pianist, which fueled her desire to pursue a career in music at an early age.
When she was 11 years old, she began learning to play the piano and organ on her own, before moving on to the violin and composing and writing her own music.
At St. Joseph’s Convent Grammar School, an all-female, all-Catholic girls’ school, Kate made major strides toward her professional music career. More than 50 songs that Kate wrote were included on a demo tape sent to several record labels, with the support of her parents.
The 16-year-old girl was denied a contract, but that turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour discovered her talent and contacted her, arranging for Andrew Powell to be her producer and also obtaining the services of sound-engineer Geoff Emerick. After EMI executive Terry Slater heard the new tape, Kate signed a recording contract with EMI.
In 1978, Kate’s debut studio album, “The Kick Inside,” was released and quickly rose to No. 3 on the UK charts, earning platinum in the UK and three times platinum in Canada. This greatly boosted Kate’s net worth and encouraged her to continue recording and touring. Wuthering Heights, the album’s namesake song, topped the charts in multiple countries, elevating Kate to international fame.
She persisted in recording and released her second album nine months later. “Lionheart” debuted at No. 6 on the UK charts and was certified platinum there, bringing her much more fame and fortune.
Kate released her third album two years later, and it was her first record to reach the top of the UK charts. In terms of sales, “Never for Ever” was barely gold, but it spawned successes like “Babooshka” and “Breathing.”
“The Dreaming,” “Hounds of Love,” and “The Sensual World” were among Kate’s most popular albums of the 1980s, all of which peaked at number one on the UK album charts (1989). Platinum and double platinum certifications followed for the albums, which produced such successes as “Sat on Your Lap,” “Running Up That Hill,” and “The Big Sky,” as well as “Love and Anger” and “Deeper Understanding.”
The Red Shoes,” Kate’s sole album in the 1990s, peaked at No. 2 on the UK album chart before she took a 12-year vacation from the music industry. Resuming where she left off with her eighth album, “Aerial,” she gained platinum status in the United Kingdom and Canada.
The Sensual World and The Red Shoes remixes appeared on her eighth album, which was released six years later. With its No. 2 UK chart position and gold certification, her venture was a success, adding to her wealth.
For her ninth album, “50 Words for Snow,” she placed at No. 5 on the UK album chart and again gained gold certification.
Kate has worked with a slew of musicians throughout the course of her career, including Peter Gabriel, Big Country, Prince, Elton John, and Jeff Beck, all of whom have contributed to her net worth.
Kate is also well-known for her work in the film industry, having starred in a number of films, including 1990’s “Les Dogs,” and composing music for films including 1999’s “Dinosaur,” 2007, and many more.
Kate and guitarist Dan McIntosh have been married since the 1990s and have one son, Albert, who was born in 1998.
One of Kate’s most well-known humanitarian undertakings is her appearance in a British television commercial for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, NSPCC, as well as various charity events.
