"Cloudbusting - The music of Kate Bush
"I honestly never thought anyone could cover Kate this faithfully.” - Robert Godwin, author of ‘The Illustrated Collector’s Guide to Kate Bush’
2 hours of hits (Wuthering Heights, Babooshka, Running Up That Hill) and album classics performed with stunning authenticity by fan-favourite tribute band Cloudbusting, featuring the astounding vocals of Mandy Watson.
“Absolutely, surreally brilliant.” Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine.
It’s no wonder Kate Bush was listed second (after John Lennon) in the Telegraph’s Best British Singer/Songwriter Category. Pioneering, influential, unshackled by anyone else’s rules, she occupies a musical genre of her own. Following record-breaking ticket sales for her live concerts of 2014, she became the only female artist in history to score eight simultaneous entries in the UK album charts. There is truly no other artist like her.
“If you missed out on seeing Kate Bush herself, Cloudbusting are the next best thing.” Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2.
Cloudbusting take the concept of the ‘tribute band’ to the next level. Richly detailed arrangements and stunning visuals let Kate fans know, from the very first note, that her legacy is in safe hands. At no point ever pretending to ‘be’ Kate, vocalist Mandy Watson steps in and out of the emotions of each song, sharing her delight in, and respect for Kate’s music alongside an enchanted audience. And audience reaction to the show up and down the UK has been ecstatic…
“Her vocals were so good, I could have been listening to Kate herself!” Preston Heyman, Kate’s studio and tour drummer.
“The versions that Cloudbusting are performing are the closest by far from any tribute I’ve ever heard” – Del Palmer, Kate Bush’s longtime musical collaborator."
