Rarely Seen Black and White Photos of a Young Catherine Bush Taken by Her Brother in the 1960s and 1970s

Catherine “Kate” Bush is an English singer-songwriter, musician and record producer. She is known for her eclectic and experimental music as well as her idiosyncratic performances.

Bush first came to note in 1978 when, at the age of 19, she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single, Wuthering Heights, becoming the first female artist to achieve a UK number-one with a self-written song. She has since released twenty-five UK Top 40 singles, including the top ten hits The Man with the Child in His Eyes, Babooshka, Running Up That Hill, Don’t Give Up and King of the Mountain.

She has released ten studio albums, all of which reached the UK Top 10, including the UK number-one albums Never for Ever (1980) and Hounds of Love (1985). She is the first British solo female artist to top the UK album charts and the first female artist ever to enter the album chart at number-one, as well as the first (and to date, only) female artist to have top five albums in the UK charts in five successive decades.

Here is a rare photo collection of a lovely young Kate taken by her brother John Carder Bush in the 1960s and ’70s.
