Jade Bird approaches Americana with a British sensibility, blending pop and punk influences with the singer/songwriter tradition.
Born in Northumberland, Bird eventually moved to London, and later to Germany and Wales, as a child. She eventually attended the BRIT School in Croyden, where she honed her songwriting chops and played concerts.
Based on her talent, Bird landed a management deal shortly after graduating. That early professional entryway led to a deal with Glassdoor Records and a South by Southwest showcase in 2017.
Bird released the EP Something American in 2017 and two years later followed it with her self-titled debut album. In 2019, she was nominated for Emerging Act of the Year at the Americana Music Awards.
She released her sophomore album Different Kinds of Light in 2021.
