JADE BIRD’S “SOMETHING AMERICAN” VIDEO PREMIERES VIA W MAGAZINE

TOURING THE U.S. THIS FALL WITH SON LITTLE

DEBUT EP SOMETHING AMERICAN RELEASED TO CRITICAL ACCLAIM ON GLASSNOTE RECORDS

The video for emerging British artist Jade Bird’s “Something American” is premiering via W Magazine who hails, “Bird’s lyrics tell specific stories in the manner of the best country songs.” Watch/share here: http://vevo.ly/pS8Tf9. The song is the title track taken from Jade’s debut EP Something American, out now on Glassnote Records.

Something American continues to receive widespread critical praise:

“Her phrasing and accent feel as if they’d be as at home in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York as they would on Nashville radio.” —NPR Music

“Bird’s debut EP, Something American, taps into the spirit of Americana that artists like Margo Price mine from, but what separates her from her peers across the pond is her voice. She possesses a crystalline soprano so pure that it calls to mind bubbling spring water and untouched snowfall.” —Pitchfork

“A young Londoner’s spin on modern Americana and stripped-down soul, driven forward by killer pipes and an acoustic guitar.” —Rolling Stone

“Nineteen-year-old U.K. export Jade Bird enchantingly blend of folk, alt-country, and blues on her fittingly titled debut EP. Come for the haunting, singalong-invitation ‘Cathedral,’ stay for the impressive cover of Son House’s ‘Grinnin’ in Your Face.’” —Entertainment Weekly

Following her first-ever performances in New York City, Nashville and Los Angeles, Jade will continue to perform the new songs on tour throughout the U.S. including a stop in Austin, TX opening for First Aid Kid and dates with Son Little this fall. See below for complete details.

Born in Hexham U.K., Jade’s early life was spent mainly in flight as an “army brat,” with time spent in South Wales, Germany and Chesterfield. One of life’s few constants proved to be the influence of strong working women. At first, via her mother and grandmother who largely raised her, but later, the female role models within the musical subcultures Jade become obsessed with: from troubled, but empowering country heroines like Loretta Lynn to iconic alternative songwriters like Patti Smith and following a thread through folk and Americana to incorporating such confessional, undiluted songwriting into pop music (Alanis Morisette’s Jagged Little Pill was a similarly early touchstone).

Something American twists those genres’ themes— disillusionment, divorce, cheating, sorrow— into the realities of an independent-minded, modern British teenager in 2017. Produced by Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes, Conor Oberst) with co-production and mixing by David Baron (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), the 5-song EP was recorded at Clubhouse Studio in Rhinebeck, NY and features Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, St Vincent) on drums and Sara Lee (B-52s) on bass.
