Glitter or litter? GLITTER
Showing great potential as a songwriter in spite of her tender years, Birdy’s second album is her first consisting primarily of original material. Although there’s a host of co-writers at work on this LP, she takes co-writing credit on everything and you can almost feel how much she will have learned through this experience.
It all started at only 12 years old, when Birdy won the national singing competition Open Mic UK (incidentally, currently on the hunt for new entrants if you’re a budding vocalist), and within a couple of years her debut album – mostly covers – was released. With ‘Fire Within’, the upward trajectory continues, and I for one hope progress continues in the manner.
