Last Tuesday I was sat in Hammersmith Apollo watching my favourite living female artist on stage. After a 35 year stage hiatus, Kate is back. Kate Bush represents so many things to me. An artist who isn’t afraid of books, history and academia as song topics. An artist who makes uncompromising visuals to accompany her art. An artist unafraid of seeming a bit weird. An artist who embraces her voice and her instrument, however unorthodox soprano and piano may be. A woman who embraces being a woman in a mans world. A woman who doesn’t get her kit off but instead sings about sex in an intimate, adult way. She just represents so much to me that I’d like to one day represent to somebody else; the music we make is very different but I feel a sense of kinship with her story-telling, her looping vocals, her layered music, her piano-playing and her poetic lyrics.

I’ve long been dancing around my room (and later on stage) to the songs of “Auntie Kate” so naturally snapped up tickets to Before The Dawn – I’m going to a further 2 concerts of the run including the closing night! I took along my two favourite people and wore all my favourite clothes. It was amazing. Thank you Auntie Kate, and see you again soon.

Due to the no video and photo message Kate posted I’m offering you a video of myself performing Kate instead!

    Oh, now it makes easier for me to see when you have a post! I subscribed! And wow, I looove Kate Bush, so glad you went there and enjoyed it! She’s really great and I also like her for the reasons you mentioned – she didn’t cmpromise her art to be more commercial, she is the way she is and that is the beauty of it. You are a great singer and I loved your performance with the beautiful and talented band! denisesplanet.com

    Headed to educate myself on Kate Bush.

    But I am so so happy that you could see your favorite, with your favorites, wearing your favorites (is that your outfit laid out?) This is how I felt seeing Beyonce this Summer. Your expression in the third to last picture captures it so well!

    ♥ perfectly Priya

    It sounds amazing! I actually haven’t heard much of Kate Bush (apart from the obvious Wuthering Heights) but I love her aesthetic, and the assortment of things that you’ve photographed are so pretty! I hope you wear it all together at some point 🙂 xxx
