A high flying musician

Being exposed to new artists is always best experienced when someone plays you their playlist or new track...with this said, i can honestly say that nobody has ever exposed me to a more talented musician as the young female artist, Birdy. Her rendition of Bon Ivers’ Skinny love is sung with such a raw and pure voice, allowing one to become fully immersed in the lyrics.

One might cringe at the thought of another teen rising from a talent contest looking for the quick and easy road to fame and a one hit wonder. What fascinates me further is how she brings through such strong emotion and passion into each of her songs, many of which a 15 year old might not even have experienced. After hearing Skinny Love and People help the people i was instantly hooked and immediately jetted off to the nearest music store. Only to my disappointment, the shop assistant had never heard of such an artist and did not even stock her self-titled album. I highly recommend each and every person get hold of her music…
