who else could create such a mesmerizing track about the abominable snowman? nobody! she is a genius! truly incomparable! the most creative artist of our times. mystical and magical kate, welcome back! thanks for sharing your talent again!

As a girl, Catherine Bush studied piano and violin while attending the St. Joseph's Convent Grammar School in Abbey Wood in South London. She also amused herself playing an organ in the barn behind her parents' house. By the time she was a teenager,...
