ARTIST PROFILE | Jade Bird
Written at the start of 2020, off the back of a year spent on the road, ‘Headstart’ is the first new music to come from Jade Bird since the release of her hugely-loved debut album last year – an album that saw the UK singer-songwriter become one of the most cherished and highly regarded songwriters of her generation, setting the bar for female musicianship in the current age and earning a burgeoning and dedicated fanbase along the way. Her mature and sharply observed narrative vignettes showcased her completely individual flair for storytelling and matched with her distinctive voice caught the minds and attention of anyone that heard her – be it on constant rotation on Radio 1, on stage live at Glastonbury, performing on Jools Holland or at one of the countless sold-out headline shows across the globe that she has now played.
Twisting big themes of disillusionment, divorce, cheating, sorrow into the realities of an independent-minded, modern British 21-year-old, Jade’s music transcends genre with a wealth of influence coming from everywhere, and anywhere. Classic, contemporary, and a total breath of fresh air in the current musical landscape, Jade Bird is that rare, next-generation artist who appears as clued up on the past as she is determined to learn from its lessons: in control, sometimes in your face, and in possession of gifts beyond her years.
