    Posted: September 08 2016 at 02:21

I searched and searched and can't find a Kate Bush-thread anywhere.

I really like her take on pop/prog. She can be very accessible and experimental.
Also she inspired dozens and dozens of artists.

I would like to take the opportunity to tip some Bush-influenced artist, and maybe someone can do the same:
 
- Susanne Sundfør (also on Progarchives, excellent prog)
- Bat for Lashes
- Ane Brun
- Florence and the Machine
- Niki and the Dove
- Kate Boy (more synthpop, but great vocals)
- My Brightest Diamond (almost prog)
- Iamiwhoami (great Bush-like progressive synthpop)

You can probably tell from my avatar that I'm a bit of a Kate fan.

Bat For Lashes is a good call - her latest album is brilliant if you haven't heard.

I've always thought that the first FATM album was about the closest to Kate of all the various female singers who get labelled as "the new Kate Bush" in terms of her lyrical ideas and use of percussion, but she's moved away from that with the last 2 albums.

I hear Kate Bush influences in Veda Hille's music.

The latest album of Bat for Lashes is more quiet than the previous ones. More serene but powerful nonetheless (should be on progarchives).

I will listen to the first Florence and the Machine-album.
 
Have you heard Susanne Sundfør? And My Brightest Diamond?

I hadn't heard of either, just listening to Susanne now, sounds interesting thanks.

UPDATE - 'kin 'ell, just wow this is brilliant. Why haven't I heard her before?
Many thanks for the recommendation.

Let's keep this thread alive and post Bush-like progressive female artists.
Let's not post gothic metal etc. ;)

Thanks Geekfreak and chopper. I would love to hear your recommendations.

Niki & The Dove
 
Quite influenced by Kate Bush, but also influenced by Randy Crawford, Blondie, Cindy Lauper and Laura Branigan. Here and there more pop/disco than prog, but still very solid and good.
Wonder if you like it:

I saw her a few years ago in Paris for the promotion of that triple album, the closer to Kate. But my favorite remains YS, with the incredible arrangements of Van Dyke Parks.

Well I listen to a lot of female solo artists but none of them have Kate's breadth of imagination.
Tori Amos is one who is often referred to as similar but I've never got round to listening to her much.
Joni Mitchell is perhaps the one female who has come closest imo. Others I listen to include Laura Marling, KT Tunstall and Kate Rusby, although I wouldn't class them as progressive. I can't think of another female who could have come up with The Ninth Wave, Bat For Lashes is perhaps the one who could at the moment.

Well. We have Susanne Sundfør and Shara Nova (used to be Sarah Worden) and her My Brightest Diamond-project.
 
Isn't Fiona Apple alos very good? Never got the chance to pick it up.
I will try the artists you mentioned.

Very good thread this, although up to now it's rather an "Artists who sound like Kate Appreciation Thread". I know and like Bat for Lashes, My Brightest Diamind, Florence and the Machine (not on the prog side of things if you ask me) and of course Tori Amos but have to check out the others mentioned. Kate Bush-similarity seems to be a pretty safe bet when recommending me things.
