TIMELINE

  • Kate BushKate was born in Kent on July 30, 1958. Kate began songwriting before her teens and creating demo tapes by age 13. The tapes made their way through a friend who had another friend: David Gilmor of Pink Floyd which eventually led to 16 year-old Kate recording another demo and being signed with EMI Records.

1978...

  • February 17: Kate released her debut LP The Kick Inside. The LP went Top 2 in the UK with several singles released including "The Man With The Child In His Eyes," "Them Heavy People," "Moving," "Strange Phenomena", and the UK #1 "Wuthering Heights." The LP failed to have the same success in the US despite a performance on Saturday Night Live.
  • Kate Bush - "Wuthering Heights" (Single)March 11: Kate topped the UK Singles chart for 4 weeks with "Wuthering Heights." Kate had become the first female artist to top the UK chart with a self-written song.
  • November 12: Kate released Lionheart. The LP hit the Top 10 in the UK and spawned the singles "Hammer Horror" and "Wow." Kate would later say that she was unhappy with this LP due to feeling it was rushed out to capitalize on her emerging success.
