Week one, we have for your listening pleasure, UK sensation Jasmine van den Bogaerde- known to most as “Birdy”. Though only sixteen years of age, Birdy has charted half a dozen singles, and even landed a spot on the killer* Hunger Games soundtrack last year. Birdy leans toward fullbodied piano, genre-defying jazz styled folk-pop, which is exceptionally suited to her soulful yet girlish voice. Adele for kids.
*pun fully intended
Birdy has collaborated with british folk outfit Mumford and Sons to produce track the track “Learn Me Right” for the pixar flim “Brave”.
