Going off the grid is a relative term. When Bob Dylan and the Band recorded The Basement Tapes they tucked themselves away in Woodstock, New York, but that’s far different than Kate Bush, who followed up her acclaimed live shows in London by moving to the edge of a cliff in rural England and hiding from the press for 35 years.
Still, Kate Bush is a good example of an artist who makes something for herself more than anyone. And while she’s lightly back in the public eye following a stint of shows last year, she would still much rather keep to herself. The artists in the gallery above are much the same.
