#21 Jade Bird
HIGH FLYIN’ BIRD: Singer/songwriter Jade Bird lands in town Apr. 21.
Wednesday April 17, 2024 09:00 PM EDT
Cost: $28.92+
CRITIC’S PICK: The show is titled “Open Up the Songbook” but the Austin/LA by way of the UK singer/songwriter, with her sweetly refined voice, performs songs from her recent Burn the Hard Drive EP which deals with the breakup of a long-term relationship. She also cherry-picks selections from two previous albums and will surely deliver “Find a Way” featured in the movie Nyad. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Like falling in love, break-ups start slowly and then happen all at once. For Jade Bird, the end of her relationship gathered pace and crashed into reality in 2022, resulting in the beautifully temperate EP Burn The Hard Drive. It is a short collection of songs that paint the various stages of grief that come with the end of a relationship in devastatingly astute but carefully optimistic strokes.

Bird has always railed against being pigeonholed and wary of collaboration. Having grown up in the UK, she was influenced heavily by Americana and hailed as a powerhouse performer. Even as she was compared to country-folk titans, in those early days she was determined to be fully Jade Bird without any shades of anyone else. Every note had to come from her. But for the Burn The Hard Drive EP, she worked with Alex Crossan, known better as Mura Masa, finding freedom and joy in writing and experimenting with ideas in his modest home studio. Gradually, the songs found form and her emotions tumbled out into notes and melodies, shepherded by Crossan’s unique and encouraging ear.
