Jade Bird continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:
With multifaceted potential, theres no telling where this Bird will land.
ARTIST YOU NEED TO KNOW
That propensity to express herself translates into her story-driven songs, which veer between Americana, Punk and soulful indie pop.
with a country-rock stream and a furious rasp when she gets riled
Songwriting is paramount to her artistic practice, and shes got a keenly self-aware, razor-sharp sense of humor.
She possesses a crystalline soprano so pure that it calls to mind bubbling spring water and untouched snowfall.
Englands Jade Bird Found the Truth in Southern Feminism.
channeling the storytelling of Americana-country godmothers like she sold her cold tea-sipping English soul to the devil for some of distilled Loretta Lynn essence. However, despite obvious comparisons to country queens, shes got that dry-as-hell humor and animal-cry growl of heartbreak, which can boil up to explosion and back down to a sweet whisper in one chorus which places her firmly in the lineage of power-chord wielding solo female icons like Alanis Morissette, Liz Phair, Fiona Apple and more.
BEST OF 2018 (SO FAR)
Bird sings wistfully, connecting romantic ideals to the ethos of the American dream.
Jade Bird is serious about being a feminist role model.
Her voice is almost impossible to place, sometimes affected like First Aid Kit, irreverent like Courtney Barnett, and punky like Courtney Love. But the lasting impression is of a songwriter that demands attention.
