About Kate Nash
Like so many others who launched their careers via Myspace, Kate Nash managed to set herself apart thanks to piano-propelled pop that caught the ears of thousands of fans. Of course, it helped that she also had the support of superstar Lily Allen, and that the constant praise from one to the other would ultimately help launch Nash's career.
Though Nash grew up in North West London and had dreams of an acting career, she was rejected by the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. It turned out that their loss was music's gain. An injury that left her homebound helped shift her focus to songwriting, and those songs later became home recordings uploaded into the social media sphere.
Imagine being an emerging artist at a time when the popularity of the Internet was exploding. Nash had such a fortune, and her early tracks like "Caroline's a Victim" and "Birds" led to a major-label deal on Fiction, an offshoot of Polydor Records (home to mainstream band Snow Patrol). Her debut single, "Foundations," reached number two on the UK charts and held for five weeks during the summer of 2007. Before long she was on stage at major festivals and making scores of television appearances, and by the time her debut album, "Made of Bricks," was released it entered the U.K. charts at the very top.
Nash began working on her second album in 2009 and continued to reach out to her online fans by posting demo recordings on MySpace. "My Best Friend Is You" was released the following year, followed by "Girl Talk" in 2013.
