Listen: Birdy


Song: “Just a Game”, “Skinny Love”, and “1901”

I thought that when the Olympics were over, I wouldn’t feel that bad about watching underage boys and girls achieve great things. That wasn’t until I hit shuffle on my iPod and rediscovered the amazingness that is 16 year old British musician Jasmine van den Bogaerde, who goes by the nickname Birdy. Birdy had been playing the piano since the age of 7 and at 12 years old, she won a talent contest which lead to a publishing contract with a subdivision of Warner Bros. Records UK. Her first single was a cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” and was popular in Europe and was featured on the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries”. Her debut eponymous album is a collection of covers in her own voice from artists like Phoenix, the Postal Service, and Ed Sheeran. It is possibly that she gained the most exposure from having her original song, “Just a Game” featured on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack.  Birdy sings with such soul and passion, I would not be surprised if we hear more from her in the future.

    Young people may achieve great things before us, but we always have to remember that there is a perfect timing for things. Sometimes I feel the same when seeing people who are younger exceeding in greatness, but I tell myself that my time would come.
