Birdy – Birdy

      Debut Features 15-Year-Old Prodigy’s Renditions of Songs by Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, The National, Phoenix, The Postal Service, and Others British-born singer and songwriter Birdy, who has been thrilling fans across the Atlantic with her richly compelling voice, will release her self-titled debut album in the U.S. March 20th. The album features the 15-year-old singer and songwriter’s soulful and sophisticated take on songs by Bon Iver (first single “Skinny Love”), The xx (second U.K. single “Shelter”), Fleet Foxes, The National, Phoenix, The Postal Service, and veteran troubadour James Taylor (“Fire and Rain”). The album was recorded in London and Los Angeles with producers Rich Costey (Muse, TV On The Radio), James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, The Klaxons), and Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys.)

      Jon O’Brien: ‘– On the face of it, the self-titled debut from 15-year-old Birdy, aka Jasmine van den Bogaerde, doesn’t seem any different from the hastily assembled cash-in covers albums released every year by the various X Factor alumni. But although its 11 renditions of mostly contemporary songs, many of which could be passed off as originals due to their previous lack of exposure, stick to the tried-and-tested talent show formula, that’s where the comparisons end. …. The whole idea of Birdy sounds like a transparent attempt to court a more credible audience, but thanks to her haunting tones and a tasteful yet compelling production, it impressively avoids being the try-hard affair you’d expect. ‘
