Kate Bush began her career in 1978 aged nineteen with the single ‘Wuthering Heights’. Inspired by a film adaptation of the Emily Brontë novel, it was the first No. 1 UK single to be written and sung by a female artist.
The release of her accompanying album The Kick Inside established her as a highly individual talent. She has always preferred the recording studio, live performances and tours having been few and far between, and all her albums have been successful at home and abroad, her third, Never for Ever (1980), being the first by a female artist to enter the British chart at No. 1.
Her eclectic, experimental musical style with its often literary and unconventional lyrical themes has defied easy categorisation, earning the lasting admiration of fans, fellow performers and music critics alike, while an eclectic roster of guest artists including Eric Clapton, Elton John, Prince and Stephen Fry have appeared on her work.
Kate Bush: Song by Song provides a thorough examination of the songs on all her singles, albums, and occasional recorded collaborations with other artists.
