Saturday Song-suasion 43: Birdy

Good morning, my lovelies! I don’t care what the calendar says, summer is here and with it comes typical summer-like weather with highs in the upper 80s and the threat of afternoon thunderstorms. Let’s start the day off with the sound of Birdy!

This young British talent rose to fame in 2008 when she won the Open Mic UK competition at the age of 12 outperforming 10,000 other contestants by singing an original “So Be Free” that she wrote for 2000 people.

Her début chart breaking single across Europe, Bon Iver “Skinny Love” adaptation, earned platinum certification 6x in Australia and can be heard on the below album.

Her second début album (below) released last August receiving positive favor in the UK and across the Atlantic.

Finally, I will leave you with this lovely single from the iTunes soundtrack The Fault With Our Stars featuring two addition song titles by Birdy: Tee Shirt and Best Shot sung with Jaymes Young.

Create and Craft

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
