Introducing mega talented UK singer Birdy

 

 

We’re all about boys with accents (Harry Styles or Cody Simpson, anyone?) but we totally heart girls with accents too. So, GL would like to introduce you to our new fave singer, Birdy. 

 

Birdy, 17, recently released her US debut EP Breathe, which features her fab song “Wings” and her spot-on cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love.” Her voice is crazy amazing (just like Lorde!) and she has such a way with words that we just can’t get enough of her.

 

Starting April 4, Birdy will be trekking across the US to open up for Christina Perri on her Head or Heart Tour. But before she hits the stage, we had her open up about her latest music, Michael Jackson and everything in between. Check it out below.  

 

GL: We’re loving your song “Wings” right now. What’s that about?

Birdy: “Wings” is inspired by the first festival I went to with my best friends. It's about the happy memory of it and wishing to be back there. 

 

For some artists, it’s what they wear or what they do before they hit the stage that gives them a confidence boost while performing. What do you do each night to make sure you have a stellar performance?

It's really great to have a band performing with me because we share the nerves and really trust each other on stage. We also like to dance before we go on to feel extra confident.

 

Have an embarrassing on-stage mishap you could share with us?

No, I'm the queen of cool (laughs).

 

You’re originally from the UK. Is there anything that the UK has that you wish America did?

Marmite.

 

On the flipside, what’s one thing you love doing in America when you’re over here?

I've still got a lot of America to see, but I love going to the beaches and going shopping at the flea markets.

 

What’s one music video you secretly wish you could be transported into just once?

Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” video.

 

Speaking of music videos, check out Birdy’s vid for “Wings” below…
