Artist Focus: Kate Bush

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new Sunday series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Kate Bush is arguably one of the most iconic voices of contemporary music. Not only was she the first female artist to achieve a UK number one with a self-written song (Wuthering Heights), she was also the first woman to have a no.1 album (3, in fact!), with the other 7 reaching the top 10. All but two of these albums were entirely written and produced by Kate, in a 48-track studio she built herself.

A true pioneer of her scene, Kate’s creativity knows no bounds. Her career spans decades with each album varying incredibly from another, yet still carrying her unmistakable signature sound. Sit back with LUNA and let the music do the talking.
