40 YEARS OF KATE BUSH
A second voice like the one of Kate Bush can not be found. Until you hear singer Mandy Watson of the fiveheaded English formatie Cloudbusting at work….
She is capable of interpreting the unique sound and emotion from the immersive songs Kate Bush gave to the world so good that you’d believe that the diva herself is performing on the stage. In ’40 years of Kate Bush’ the musical treasures from the repertoire of Bush, like ‘Wuthering Heights’, ‘Don’t give up’, ‘Babooshka’ and ‘The man with the child in his eyes’ experience an impressive renaissance.
Bandmembers who have performed with ‘grand dame’ Bush herself also agree to that, like bassist Del Palmer and drummer Preston Heyman: “It is like we hear the voice of Kate herself!”
Currently the music of Kate Bush is reviving because of the presence of the song ‘Running Up That Hill’ in the fourth season of the popular Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’. This worldwide hit from 1985 is massively streamed and is now again a number one hit in many countries.
