On The Record: Vance Joy

We stopped Australian singer Vance Joy on his stop in San Francisco to challenge him to answer one of the most difficult questions of all time- “What’s your favorite record?”. Watch for his answer, he digs the “moodiness of it”.

Birdy’s Celebrity Playlist

English singer-songwriter Birdy first came across our radar with her soft, delicate, piano-powered rendering of Bon Iver's melancholic beauty “Skinny Love.” Her breathtaking delivery suggested the emotional confidence of a veteran musician, yet the then 14-year-old (!) was just beginning her musical journey. Since, she's become a master cover artist, tackling songs from artists as disparate as James Taylor, The Postal Service, and The xx on her self-titled 2011 debut album. 

To coincide with her latest release, Fire Within, we’ve chosen Birdy as our Ones to Watch artist this month. In return, she’s given us both an exclusive remix of “Skinny Love” and a handmade playlist of songs she listens to while on the road. It’s an awesome mix that showcases especially eclectic and timeless songwriting, from classics by Jeff Buckley and Fleetwood Mac to newer gems from Lana Del Rey and Alt-J. Enjoy!
