Birdy: Oslo, London
Pip Williams, Coup De Main, 20 February 2016
BIRDY'S SHOW at East London's Oslo marked both a triumphant debut for her new material, and a point of note along an unusual career trajectory. To be releasing a third solo album at the age of 19 is something most artists wouldn't even hope for. It's close to unthinkable that someone so young could forge a musical career so self-assured, yet we have seen Birdy move seamlessly from the covers that made her name to her own brand of delicately yearning folk.
