Two female singer/songwriters for the weekend

This week it’s two female singer songwriters.

First it’s the iconic Kate Bush, who came to fame with the first UK number one single written and performed by a female, “Wuthering Heights” in 1978 at the young age of 19. From her first single to her last one before a self-imposed hiatus.
“And So Is Love” by Kate Bush from 1994 from her 1993 album “The Red Shoes”. It was to be Kate’s last single until 2005.

Next is the American singer songwriter Tori Amos who came to prominence in 1991 and had a number of hits in the nineties. Her vocal style is not dissimilar from Bush’s.
