ROLLING STONE COUNTRY PREMIERES JADE BIRD’S COVER OF JOHNNY CASH’S “I’VE BEEN EVERYWHERE”

TOURING THE U.S. WITH SON LITTLE THIS FALL

SOMETHING AMERICAN OUT NOW

Rising British artist Jade Bird recently covered Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere.” The live performance video is premiering today on Rolling Stone Country who hails, “she’s already a globally minded woman, filling Something American’s five songs with a mix of British soul, Delta blues and indie-country.” Watch/share here: http://bit.ly/2xppvAl.

Jade continues to support the release of her debut EP Something American—she will return stateside this month, touring with Son Little throughout the fall. See below for complete details.

Something American, released in July via Glassnote Records, continues to receive widespread critical praise:

“U.K. country music breakout”Entertainment Weekly

“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

“Bird’s lyrics tell specific stories in the manner of the best country songs” —W Magazine

“The EP features simple instrumentation and production that showcases Jade Bird’s powerful vocals and impressive songwriting… She’s genuine, charming, and her passion for music and songwriting comes through powerfully in performance.” —Baeble Music

Additionally, Jade made her network television debut performing her single “Cathedral” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Watch here: http://bit.ly/2wNvFK6.

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.
