For Birdy - real name Jasmine Lucilla Elizabeth Jennifer van den Bogaerde - things started at a very young age. As a 12-year old, she signed a publishing deal and worldwide recording deal and went on to have  a world hit with her version of  Bon Iver’s 'Skinny Love’. Her debut album 'Birdy’ (2011)  shot to the top of the charts in UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Australia. All of a sudden, while she was still just fifteen, the British singer had millions of people around the world hush down with her intimate piano covers and crystal clear voice.

 

Birdy is now twenty-seven, she has had five successful albums to her name which have gone gold and platinum several times over, her music has been heard in some of the biggest blockbuster films, she has worked with some of the biggest name producers and fans have streamed her music more than five billion (!) times. For 'Portraits’, her latest album which was released last year, she decided to explore new roads in her quest to find her true voice. Confident, ageless, exuberant and energetic are just some of the words that perfectly describe her new music. The Guardian rated 'Portraits’ four stars, calling it an 'irresistible melodic eighties trip packed with nostalgia’. Flemish newspaper De Standaard in turn detected the vocal power of Kate Bush in the new Birdy. It is the blossoming of a young artist with heaps of experience. Keen to find out how she will do on a live stage!
