[SINGER-SONG COVER ARTIST] If you’ve ever wondered whether music can get more sparse or sad than bands like the National or the xx, Jasmine Van den Bogaerde—more commonly known by her stage name Birdy—is here to prove it’s possible. The 17-year-old British singer rose to fame in 2011 with her version of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” and has since gone on to cover the above heavy hitters, not to mention the Postal Service, Phoenix and Fleet Foxes, among others. Comprising simple piano, Bogaerde’s beautifully low, emotional vocals and the occasional beat or string section behind the two, her music is good for hearing familiar songs reimagined, or for crying, or if you just want to understand the words to “1901.”
