Fifteen-year-old Birdy is unspeakably talented. With a crystal voice that’s haunting, sad and unforgettable, she’s done covers of two of my favourite songs. The xx’s ‘Shelter and Bon Iver ‘Skinny Love’. I don’t often fall head over heels for an artist or voices like this, but she’s won me over. And seriously, fifteen? I’m ten years older than that and don’t even have a touch of that talent. Man, I’m jealous.
Not only is she vocally amazing, her interpretation of each of the songs is incredible. To have such emotional depth and wisdom is a rare thing. They’re not covers, they’re new songs.
