“[A] beautifully careful, creative, empathetic reinterpretation of the great Kate’s music”— NPR

Grammy-nominated vocalist Theo Bleckmann makes his Spiegeltent debut with Hello Earth!, a journey into the mysterious songbook of British pop recluse and cult hero Kate Bush, who first won acclaim at age 18 with her 1978 hit Wuthering Heights. Noted for her cerebral lyrics, melding of musical genres, and lush instrumental arrangements, Bush is a forerunner to artists such as Björk and Joanna Newsom. Far more than simply re-creating Bush’s music, Bleckmann transports it to other realms with his astonishingly agile voice and distinctive vision. One of the most revered singers of his generation, Bleckmann creates a new interpretation that is accessibly sophisticated, unsentimentally emotional, and seriously playful.
