JADE BIRD - FERRIS & SYLVESTER
Talented singer-songwriter proving that country-folk doesn’t belong exclusively to Americans

“Country fans have begun to gravitate to Bird thanks to her evocatively imagined narratives about broken relationships, fledgling love and marriages that end before they can begin.”
The BBC put her on their Sound of 2018 list, while Rolling Stone magazine noticed that her music sounds like “soulful Americana seen through the emotionally wrought lens of a 20-year-old British songwriter”. Jade Bird’s debut EP “Something American” was released in 2018 by Glassnote Records, the indie label responsible for launching Mumford & Sons, Phoenix and Chvrches in the U.S., and proves that the young Londoner has no trouble finding her own place in the American country-folk scene. Her compositions and lyrics show great maturity, and her fearless attitude has seen her cover big names like Johnny Cash, Pixies and even Dua Lipa. There is no doubt that a great future awaits her!
