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.

    Cada um amadurece de um jeito. A Kate sempre gostou de grunge, não entendo a surpresa de alguns por ela ter "mudado". Girl Talk retrata muito bem o ponto de vista dela, que é uma feminista assumida. É o tema do álbum e se encaixou muito bem nesse estilo. [2] SIM.

    "Girl Talk" pode ser bastante diferente dos outros dois álbuns, mas está igualmente bom. Nenhuma otária "flopou" aqui sem ser vocês as duas com esse comentário tão oco quanto prepotente, suas queridas.

    Funnily enough, "Made of Bricks" sounds nothing like Regina Spektor. Though the more recent Kate Nash often sounds like a (strangely nice) mash up of Kimya Dawson and Kathleen Hanna.

    She began as an imitator of Regina Spektor, but far surpassed it

    I find it curiously interesting how she went from her almost "album for children" debut ("Mouthwash", "Skeleton Song" and "Mariella" are good examples of that, I'd say) to the significantly more serious and mature sounding "Girl Talk". Such contrast shows, at the very least, how much talent that woman has in her. I like both Kate Nash styles (I love both albums equally), but I do hope that, for the next album, she won't forget about the little fun girl that seems to have written most of the tracks on "Made of Bricks". Let's not get the riot grrrl drown the cute fun one, but instead have them playing pattycake together, or something. I'm all out of good analogies for today.
