'For millions around the world Kate is way more than another singer-songwriter: she is a creator of musical companions that travel with you through life. One paradox about her is that while her lyrics are avowedly idiosyncratic, those same lyrics evoke emotions and sensations that feel universal' - David Mitchell Kate Bush is a true iconoclast and one of the most revered contemporary musical artists of recent years. Since her emergence in 1978 she has forged a creative path which has proved to be both highly innovative and hugely inspiring. Her artistic achievements have helped shape our cultural landscape and her singular vision has influenced many others. In 2002 Kate won the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, one of many awards won by her over the years. In 2012 her album 50 Words For Snow won Best Album at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards whilst in 2014 Kate won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for her live show Before The Dawn, which played for twenty-two nights at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
