Despite the Beast from the East raging on outside, Londoner Jade Bird effused light, warmth and a burgeoning confidence as she took to the stage at VU.
Snow, sleet and an unexpected polar vortex didn’t stop us from catching the 20 year old singer showcase her wise-beyond-her-years songwriting ability, which Jade marries so well with a fledgeling frontwoman stance. Speaking to the crowd after a gut-wrenching rendition of Cathedral, Jade admitted: “that was like ripping off a band-aid”.
Jade Bird was incredible at the Village Underground tonight in London. Proper life-affirming stuff. What a voice! Manchester pals make sure you’re at the Eagle Inn @JadeBirdMusic pic.twitter.com/nepIMqx0Ai
