Catherine "Kate" Bush (born July 30, 1958, Bexleyheath, Kent, England) is an English singer-songwriter whose songs "Hello Earth" (in "Bushido") and "Don't Give Up" (with Peter Gabriel, in "Redemption in Blood") were featured in the series Miami Vice.

Career

Bush was looked on as a rising music star in the UK, a change from the progressive and visual-rock sound going on in the late 1970s. She made her first album, The Kick Inside (featuring "Wuthering Heights" and "The Man with the Child in His Eyes", Bush's first single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 at #85), in 1978 as a 19 year old, but the music was written when she was 13. Her second album, Lionheart, was rushed out in 1979, but Bush was never happy with it, feeling it was not completed to her satisfaction. She released Never for Ever (1980) and The Dreaming (1982), but it was her 1985 album, Hounds of Love, that brought Bush fame, featuring "Hello Earth", and her first Top 40 single in America, "Running Up That Hill" (#30). She also performed a duet on Peter Gabriel's album So, "Don't Give Up". Hounds knocked Madonna's Like A Virgin from the #1 position on the UK Album chart. She released four more studio albums; The Sensual World in 1989, The Red Shoes in 1993, Aerial in 2005, and 50 Words for Snow in 2011. Bush turned down an appearance during the closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, instead a new remixed version of "Running Up That Hill" was played. In 2014, Bush performed live for the first time since 1979 and played 22 concerts at the Hammersmith Apollo; all events sold out in 15 minutes and were positively received, and a compilation album of those concerts, the three-CD Before the Dawn, was released in November, 2016. In 2018 Bush released a book of her song lyrics, How to Be Invisible: Selected Lyrics, and that all ten of her studio albums would be remastered and re-released.

Personal life

Bush had a relationship with Del Palmer, a bass player in her back-up band, that started during production of Lionheart and ended in the early 1990s. She later married her guitarist, Danny McIntosh in 1992, and in 1998 they had a son, Albert.
