AUDIO: Birdy – 1901 (Phoenix Cover)
by Winston "Stone" Ford
The sheer amount of amazing music out here is overwhelming. At that’s a good thing. Take 15 year old artist Birdy, aka Jasmine Van den Bogaerde. Her take on Phoenix’s 1901 is rather stunning. And the fact that she is barely a teenage makes it even more stunning. Let’s not front, Birdy has been on the forefront since she was 12 years old overseas and she’s now home to a major label record deal. But to me, what she’s doing is a showcase how how music is becoming universal, and faster than anyone thinks.
