LIVE: Birdy @ The Forum, Kentish Town
Birdy Spreads Her Wings
In 2011 at the age of just 14 Birdy released her debut self-titled album. A cleverly constructed collection of indie covers, made completely her own by her intriguing and individual sound. The album peaked at number 13 in the UK charts but went to number 1 in Belgium, Netherlands and Australia!
Since the release of her second album 'Fire Within' in 2013 Birdy has continued gaining both recognition and credibility throughout the industry, performing with the likes of Mumford & Sons.
Although just 17 years-old, last night the British singer songwriter wowed a sold out crowd with her elegant piano based performances. She played songs from both her debut album and 'Fire Within' as well as a rendition of a personal song written with her sister.
The vintage cinema style venue, teamed with a creative array of stunning visuals made for a truly breathtaking performance. From the first note the crowd became silent, in total awe of such a delicate voice.
The incredibly talented musicians on stage with Birdy passed instruments around, each playing a varied part in the show.
As of April 4th 2014 Birdy will be supporting American musician Christina Perri on her 'Head or Heart' American tour, and I predict its only a matter of time before Birdy is headlining her own American, European and if not world tour!
A truly stunning evening.
