Last month, rising star Jade Bird
stopped by the office for a Baeble NEXT Session. The British singer, influenced by Americana folk and a passion for songwriting, began to make a name for herself in London by playing as many gigs as she can, more recently making her way into the UK festival world. On July 7, Jade Bird released her debut EP, Something American
, with Glassnote Records. The EP features simple instrumentation and production that showcases Jade Bird's powerful vocals and impressive songwriting.
This session features Jade Bird playing songs from her debut EP, including "Good Woman," "Something American," and "Cathedral." Her charming personality comes through both in her performances and her conversation. Between songs, Jade Bird talks about playing gigs and competitions in Wales before moving to London at 16 to perform, taking songwriting inspiration from her heroes, and using her experience of dealing with divorce in her family as the substance for her own songwriting. If you don't already know who Jade Bird is, this session will convince you that you should. She's genuine, charming, and her passion for music and songwriting comes through powerfully in performance. Watch and see for yourself.
