Birdy - 1901 video

Birdy music video 1901. 1901 is a song performed by Birdy. Following on from the 15 year old Birdy's success in 2011 with People Help the People, Shelter and Skinny Love, the child prodigy has released 1901. Her enchanting version of the song origianlly recorded by French rock band Phoenix has received critical acclaim being compared to musical queens Amy Winehouse and Adele. Going by the name of Birdy, the child star's real name is Jasmine Van Den Bogaerde and inbetween writing smash hit records is studying for her GCSE's at school. The music video was shot on Brick Lane in London whilst, the song 1901 is the fourth release from her debut album 'Birdy' and features a young couple going through a troubled and tumultuous phase of their relationship. Having been taught classical piano by her mother in her early childhood Birdy is adept at transforming any music into her own beautiful, haunting melody as seen with Birdy music video 1901 which was originally an upbeat tune but now takes the appearance of a broken-hearted ballad. Following her success in the UK Birdy now has her eyes set on the states with her album on release from March 20th, and scheduled appearances at legendary spots WXPN's World Cafe and Chris Douridas. Birdy originally came to the public eye through an X-Factor style competition called Open Mic where she won the Grand Prize beating 10,000 other competitors. The 1901 star then went on to cover Bon Iver song Skinny Love which garnered her a legion of fans and admirers. Of particular note is her re-interpretation of Ed Sheeran's flagship song The A Team which Birdy recorded accompanied by a piano. Her popularity in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands is increasing by the day with 1901 music video, Skinny Love, Shelter, and People Help the People all charting within the Top 40 Charts. Interestingly 1901 is Birdy's favorite song from her self-titled debut album where she said 'When I first started putting it together, I didn’t think this one was going to work, because the original by Phoenix is such an upbeat song, and it’s quite hard to work out the notes because there’s so many instruments in it. And I to be honest, I just didn’t think it would suit me at all. But it’s turned out to be one of my favourites, because it’s quite different from the rest of the songs. I really like it' Vocally Birdy is a unique wonder sounding like a mixture between Lana Del Rey and Imogen Heap. What is even more astonishing is the innate ability of the 1901 Star to deal so aptly with emotions such as love and grief which a 15 year old girl should not really be able to do. Given the mass appeal which Birdy's music has achieved in so little time appearing on cult classic 'The Vampire Diaries'. It is clear that his 15 year old has a bright future in front of her and many more hits to look forward to aswell.
