Biography

Harrow, North London, United Kingdom (2005 – present)

Kate Nash (born 6 July 1987) is a singer, songwriter, pianist, and guitarist from Harrow, North London, United Kingdom, best known for the UK #2 hit “Foundations”.

Growing up in Harrow, London, Nash first became interested in music during her childhood when she learned to play the piano. She attended St. John Fisher school and moved on to the St. Joan of Arc School in Rickmansworth. Her talents were harnessed further when she wrote songs for her GCSE in Music and her time studying at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon, South London. However, her first love was acting and so in 2005 she made moves to start a career in acting by auditioning at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and was rejected. After her rejection she fell down a flight of stairs, breaking her foot. During her recovery Nash was unable to go anywhere and found solace in song writing. She began to write some new songs, finished old ones and decided that she would book herself a gig at a local bar to showcase her songs. From this experience she decided to start a career in music.

Nash’s early live performances saw her play a number of cover versions. After a few gigs, Nash uploaded her music to the popular website MySpace. Her music soon began to receive support from users of the site and Nash found herself a manager, proceeding to look for producers.

    I really don't understand why SUCH old pictures keep taking up the main pages. Vote recent pictures up, new fans will have no idea what Kate even looks like based on her last.fm page. it really doesn't take that many votes to change it up :)

    Kate I already need more new music!! I LOVE girl talk, I feel like the progression to that rock sound was so natural. She's always had the sort of attitude in her delivery of lyrics. Made of Bricks definitely showed signs of the direction she'd take with girl talk. I'm in love with it, she better stick with it. Maybe push it even more! riot on girrrl ;)
