Jasmine van den Bogaerde, stage name Birdy, is a 16 year old English musician with a vibe so wistfully eloquent and wise beyond her years. She stole my heart with her cover of french band Phoenix’s 1901 – probably because I love that track, and I love ingenious cover songs. She won the music competition Open Mic UK in 2008, at the age of 12. Artists this young usually don’t interest me – I need to wait for more life experience in their music. But Birdy is different. She has a message to send with her music. Her self-titled album, Birdy, is a montage of cover songs from some of the best current artists, and would be a good choice for your next dinner party.
