Last year, I was fortunate enough to do some engineering on a few tracks for Birdy’s new album Beautiful Lies. She is one of those artists who surprises you every day in the studio – you just don’t think she could sing any more beautifully, or make it look any easier, and then she does. Again. She’s gone in at No4 in the Official UK Album Chart, is the Shazam No1 today, and debut’d at the top of the iTunes album chart in a number of countries. It’s hugely impressive to see how well she’s doing, but not a surprise having seen her work in person. Definitely one to check out.
