At just 20 years old Kate Nash is taking the U.K. by storm and now has her eyes set on America. It's been quite a year for the young singer from suburban Harrow, U.K. who wrote most of her debut U.K. release while recuperating from a broken foot after fall down a flight of stairs. "My Mum and Dad bought me a guitar to perk me up because I couldn't do anything. So I spent three weeks writing and recording with it on my laptop, I was itching to do something creative," said Kate. The result is Made of Bricks, an album the New York Times discovered and recently reviewed with praise for Nash. Made of Bricks will see its U.S. release on Geffen Records in early 2008.
Kate counts Lily Allen and Prince among her fans. And the U.K. media has lauded its praise upon the young girl with the Daily Mail stating, "One of the most exciting talents to emerge this year...refreshingly homespun and diverse," and NME saying "She's a unique talent...the sweet yet savvy new troubadour of teenage street-life."
Kate will make some time to bring her songs to the states performing a few gigs in the New York areas at the end of September
