Go See Kate Nash

October 22nd, 2010

Kate Nash was born in Dublin in the late ’80s but raised in North London. Following a fall down a flight of stairs, resulting in a broken foot, her mother bought her an electric guitar. Housebound, Nash improved her guitar playing and spent plenty of time songwriting. Soon enough, she’d finished some old songs, written some new ones and then booked herself a show at a local bar. Emboldened by that gig going well, she uploaded some of her tracks to MySpace and got a manager. Her first album, Made of Bricks, came out in 2007, and the follow-up, My Best Friend Is You, was released this year. Due to a similar accent, Kate Nash (above, doing “Foundations” on London Jukebox Live) has been compared to Lilly Allen, but Nash’s music speaks for itself. Find out for yourself on Friday, 11/19, at Terminal 5.
