Born Catherine Bush 30 July 1958, Kate Bush is an English singer-songwriter, musician and record producer. She has an eclectic musical style and idiosyncratic vocal style which led her to be one of the United Kingdom's most successful solo female performers of the past 30 years. She signed with EMI at the age of 16 after being recommended by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. At the age of 19 (1978) she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single "Wuthering Heights"(that you can ear down below), becoming the first woman to have a UK number-one with a self-written song. In the following year she as also the most photographed woman in the United Kingdom.
