Kate Bush

When Kate Bush was just 16, she signed to EMI Records, whilst studying dance, mime, and voice, and continuing to write songs. By 1977, she was ready to enter the studio and "Wuthering Heights" (based on Emily Bronte's novel) was recorded. It shot to number one in the UK charts and she became an overnight sensation at the age of 17. She quickly recorded the album "The Kick Inside", a collection of material she had written over the previous three years. It reached number three and sold over a million copies in the UK alone. In 1980 "Babooshka" became her first Top Five single since "Wuthering Heights," and her subsequent album "Never for Ever" entered the British charts at number one in September of that year.
After two years' absence in August of 1985 she released "Running Up That Hill," which reached number three on the English charts and became her second biggest-selling single. The accompanying album, Hounds of Love entered the UK charts at number one in September of 1985 and remained there for a full month.
"Running Up That Hill" also gave Kate her long-awaited American breakthrough, reaching number 30 in the US charts. In 1987, she won the Best British Female Artist award at the BRIT Awards in London. In October of 1989, Kate's album , The Sensual World, reached the British number two spot. Her next album, The Red Shoes (1993), debuted in the American Top 30, the first time one of her albums had ever charted that high.
