She’s had an enormous influence on many contemporary artists.

It’s not just that Kate Bush is a great musician, it’s that she has had an enormous influence on many contemporary artists. If you’ve ever listened to Bjork, Arcade Fire or Radiohead, then you have a little bit of Kate Bush in your music collection.

The reason for this is pretty simple: Kate Bush has inspired countless musicians to explore their own creativity and try new things with sound. She’s also inspired them to experiment with different instruments (like the harpsichord) and different types of singing (using falsetto).

She was a pioneer in the use of sampling and synthesizers.

Kate Bush was one of the first artists to use sampling and synthesizers. You may be thinking, “What does this have to do with me?” Well, if you ever want to make a hit song these days, your best bet is to sample or use a synth or both. But back in 1979 that was not the case at all! Kate Bush was one of the first artists to use both sampling and synthesizers in her music. In fact, she was one of the only people who did anything like it at all until around 1982 when there were several more artists doing similar things but they weren’t nearly as good as Kate because they didn’t have anywhere near as much talent (although some did have talent).

Kate Bush’s innovative techniques paved the way for many modern-day pop stars including Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson (before he died), and Taylor Swift who owe their success entirely to what Kate did with her music back then!

Her use of technology to make sounds and textures is still remarkable.

Kate Bush was never afraid to try something new. She was one of the first artists to use sampling and synthesizers, which helped her create sounds and textures that were entirely unique. Her music is still fresh today, more than 30 years after it first came out.

She’s released music on her own terms and timelines.

Kate Bush is not a fan of the music industry. She doesn’t have to be; she’s already one of the most successful artists in history, and she has a following that will wait as long as it takes for her to release new music. In fact, Kate Bush fans will happily wait indefinitely—they’re willing to wait years if necessary!

Kate Bush is a pioneer who creates music that has influenced many other artists.

Kate Bush is a pioneer who has influenced many artists. In the early 1980s, she was using sampling and synthesizers to create music that was entirely new at the time. She’s also released her albums on her own terms and in her own timeline, which makes her an independent artist working outside of the mainstream industry. All of these things are part of what makes Kate Bush so influential; she’s created something new and different from what other musicians have done before, but also does it with grace and style.

Kate Bush is one of the most influential, innovative, and enigmatic artists of our time. Her music has influenced generations of artists and continues to push boundaries in ways that few other artists dare to try. It would be hard not to find an artist who hasn’t been touched by her work or at least mentioned her as a major influence on their own creative process. If you ever get the chance to see her perform live don’t miss out! While she may not tour very often (and only does so when there are new releases), these shows are truly special events for fans all over the world who have waited years for another chance to see their idol up close and personal again.

For now, you can add her other songs to your playlist and let “Running Up That Hill” rest… for the meantime.
