Born in Hampshire, UK, in 1996, she decided to opt for the nickname ‘Birdy’. Winner of the 2008 edition of Mic UK, she waited until november 2011 to release her first CD. In her debut album also named Birdy, most of the tracks were covers, except for the song Without A Word, which she wrote herself.
She only used to sing and play the piano, but lately she has started writing her own songs. In her second album Fire Within, which she released in 2013, she was the singer, writer AND musician. She now plays both the piano and guitar.
The critics and the public loved her, which is probably why her voice is used in most movies soundtracks. In addition to the TV series Being Human (3x1 Skinny Love) and The Vampire Diaries (2x21, 5x4, 5x22), you can hear her voice in the animated movie Brave (Learn Me Right), and in the heartbreaking romance The Fault In Our Stars (Not About Angels, Tee Shirt, Best Shot).
