article imageKate Bush earns 2018 nomination for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 22, 2017 in Music
British songstress Kate Bush has earned a long overdue nomination for the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, for its Class of 2018.
She has been eligible for nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2003, and this marks her first career nomination.
As indicated in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website, Bush has been credited for giving popular music a new palette of techniques; moreover, she was able to craft unorthodox performances that are half sonic experiment, and half theater.
The songstress brings her fans and listeners into her music world "complex arrangements," as well as "striking visual presentations" and "inventive use of technology."
Most impressive about Bush, was that at the age of 19, she reached the top of the Billboard U.K. Singles Chart for four weeks with her breakthrough single "Wuthering Heights," where she became the first female artist to achieve a chart-topping single in the U.K. with a song that she wrote herself.
For her services to music, Bush was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours, an honor which was presented to her by Queen Elizabeth II.
Other female solo artists that are nominated along with Kate Bush this year for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include the late songstresses Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Nina Simone.
