Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been rather absent lately and a bit inconsistent with my weekly memes. I was kinda busy during the past couple weeks, and as a result I’ve been a little scatterbrained and not very productive. But I will try to be more on top of things!
One bit of exciting news is that I am going to meet Maggie Stiefvater on Thursday. Omg I am SO SO EXCITED (and a little nervous because I always act like an idiot when I meet authors I greatly admire). I’ll be sure to write a post about it this weekend.
Anyway, on to Music Monday––a weekly meme hosted by Lauren at Always Me. The only rules are: 1) Every Monday, post 2-3 songs that you like, 2) Write a comment about them if you want, 3) Add a link to the post in the link-up on Lauren’s blog.
I’ve decided I want to try something a little different with my Music Monday posts, at least for the time being. I like how Lauren highlights a different artist every week, so I’m going to try the same thing.
My artist of the week is …
About: Birdy is the stage name of UK singer-songwriter Jasmine Van den Bogaerde. When she was only 14, she released a haunting cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love,” which made it to #17 on the UK Singles Chart. She now writes and performs her own songs and has released three studio albums.
Genres: Folk, pop
Albums: Birdy (2011), Fire Within (2013), Beautiful Lies (2016)
I really love Birdy’s voice––it has such a powerful and ethereal quality to it that reminds me of other powerhouses like Adele and Florence Welch. And the fact that she recorded that Bon Iver cover at such a young age just blows my mind!
Thanks for joining me for another Music Monday! Feel free to link me to your own Music Monday post if you wrote one. 🙂
