No matter how old you were or where you were in the world when you first heard a Kate Bush song there is something classically timeless about her voice and music. Her high vocal range and stunning ability to change key several times and the fact that she was not like the punk era sound of the time, created a new mysterious feminine sound of the mid-70s that in itself has created a signature timestamp to that era in musical history.
Kate Bush was the first woman to have 8 albums in the UK charts at the same time, also a pioneer for being a British female to get to number one with a self-written song.
