Yeah, but only RARELY does she sound like that (high vocal range)....most of the time, no. I think the piano helps form that "Kate" picture in my head as much as the vocals do. I think she could do more of the raspy if she wanted...and still it would not sound affected / forced. I hope she's around for a while and puts out a bunch of stuff!!
But, but, but, ...... she does sound like Kate in that. I thought she was going to break out into "Oh England My Lion Heart" at about 4:05. I sit corrected and humbled by your analogy. Thanks for introducing her to me.
Kate Bush is one of the few artists I call a favorite. This woman is very good and I liked the song, but she's an alto with limited upper range ability. Kate is a soprano with a much low range ability. Sadly she is no where near Kate's upper registers. Kate can make your ears bleed while you smile & dance and then give you that husky babooshka wolf growl that.....well you get the idea. This gal can only make me smile.
I kind of appreciate Kate Bush but I wouldn't go as far as really liking her otherwise I'd probably have more than 2 albums of her stuff. With just this song I think Anna has some serious chops. Is there an album available? I haven't found anything yet.
