Kate Bush‘s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2023 is a beautiful tribute to this reclusive and innovative artist who brought great impact to music. Those who read Miscelana know that I am a huge fan.
Kate originated in England in the late 1970s when she was still a teenager. Her style is unique, with dense songs, high voice, original arrangements, and performance videos, without exaggeration, she often is called a visionary. There’s no way to define what Kate’s music is because it’s pop, it’s rock, it’s… Kate Bush. Composer and multi-instrumentalist, her songs come out of books, and everyday life, always painting a very clear image for those who listen to her. Always betting on experiments, samples, and theatricality, Kate has not been performing live for decades, breaking the hiatus briefly in 2014, which was sold out in minutes.
Steadfast in her vision and Art, Kate Bush has never submitted to record label pressure. Before being common, she had already created her recording studio at home, to keep control of her work. The inclusion of Running Up That Hill in Stranger Things brought Kate new popularity with a new generation.
About the ceremony there are two questions: will she go? Who will present it? I won’t miss it for nothing.
Here is a basic playlist with her hits.
