Born in Ireland, Kate Nash began her musical career after not gaining a foothold into her first love, acting. She began performing her songs in 2005, booking herself into a local gig in Bristol after being rejected by the Old Vic Theatre School. She eventually uploaded some of her songs to MySpace, where she earned the same type of notice as Lily Allen, who first scored a great deal of exposure in early 2006. Nash's first single was a vinyl only 7-inch of her song 'Caroline's a Victim.' She eventually signed with Fiction, which issued the single 'Foundations,' which spent five weeks on the UK Top-40, reaching number two in the summer of 2007. Her debut album, 'Made With Bricks,' arrived in August, reaching Number One on the UK album chart, selling over 60,000 copies.
