hmv's Next Big Thing... #154 Jade Bird
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you glorious songstress Jade Bird...
Who Is She?
Northumbria native Jade Bird is two months into her 20th year on Earth, but has already enjoyed the kind of career that most singers spend their whole lives dreaming about. She's toured the US with country superstar Brent Cobb, supported Swedish folk darlings First Aid Kit and recruited a backing band that includes Mystery Jets man William Rees and Jeff Buckley drummer Matt Johnson. She's now readying her debut album...
What Does She Sound Like?
Bird takes a lot from Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, but you can hear shards of Laura Marling, the aforementioned First Aid Kit and a touch of Fleet Foxes in there too.
Why Should I Be Excited?
A great voice, a real way with words and a hypnotic sense of melody, she's quite the combo.
Can I Hear Something?
For sure, her new single 'Cathedral' is below for you:
