Kate Bush is widely respected as one of the most unique solo female performers to have ever emerged in the field of popular music. She has achieved that rare combination of great commercial success and critical acclaim, with Hounds of Love considered widely to be her masterpiece. The album regularly features in 'best album' lists, and in the 2004 Observer poll was the highest placed work by a solo female artist. The album allows the author, Ron Moy, the critical opportunity to explore a wide range of issues relating to technology, production, authorship, grain of the voice, iconography, critical and commercial impact, collaboration, gender, sexuality, narrative, and social and cultural context.

About the Author:

Dr Ron Moy is Lecturer in the School of Media, Critical and Creative Arts, at Liverpool John Moores University, UK.

Review:

'This is one of the few serious studies of Kate Bush, a hugely successful and influential British female pop artist. By focussing on Bush's albums released between 1978 and 2005, and paying close attention to the 1985 album, Hounds of Love, Ron Moy presents a fascinating account of this artist's achievements. Exploring the complex interactions of songs, video texts, mythologies of national identity, and authenticity, he executes an interdisciplinary approach that will undoubtedly be of use to a wide range of scholars within the field of popular music studies.' Stan Hawkins, University of Oslo 'Moy [...] provides enlightening critical discussions of authorship, creative process and performance... It will be well received by students and researchers across several disciplines, and will no doubt provoke further discussion within musicology.' Popular Music
