New English sensation Birdy may only be 14, but she’s already won a talent competition and has been in the charts with a cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’. With only a piano to accompany her, Birdy (Jasmine Van den Bogaerde to her friends) unleashes her tender and frankly jaw-dropping vocals and bowls the listener over by her breathtaking voice. A sparse, yet utterly emotional version of a spectacular track that has seen her playlisted by the top UK DJs. If Van den Bogaerde keeps this up it won’t be long before Birdy becomes a household name on both sides of the Atlantic. ‘Skinny Love’ is available from iTunes.
