OPEN MIC UK WINNER BIRDY SET FOR MORE CHART SUCCESS
Previous Open Mic UK Winner Birdy Releases New Single ‘Let It All Go’.
Open Mic UK Winner Birdy: Previous Open Mic UK winner Birdy is set for more chart success this year as she reveals her brand new single ‘Let It All Go’ a duet co-written with Rhodes.
OPEN MIC UK WINNER BIRDY'S NEW SINGLE
Released on September 11th, 'Let It All Go' is a captivating union of the writers' powerful vocals. Having been mutual fans of each other's work, Rhodes and Birdy were introduced and quickly started writing together. Rhodes said "I wanted something in the last quarter of my album that was a slight departure from the rest of the songs, and after being immediately struck by the beauty and honesty in Birdy's voice I thought this would be the perfect way to do it". Birdy added, "I find both the strength and fragility in David's voice so beautiful…. I'm really excited about this song". And the powerful duet 'Let It All Go' was the spectacular result.
The single follows Open Mic UK winner Birdy’s second album ‘Fire Within’ which debuted at No.8 in the UK chart and spurned the huge hit ‘Wings’. The Brit Award nominee has set the world alight with her unique vocals and songwriting. Birdy is now working on her third and eagerly awaited album which is set for release in 2016.

OPEN MIC UK WINNER BIRDY – ‘LET IT ALL GO’ MUSIC VIDEO
The exquisite music video shot in Scotland by Sing J Lee powerfully puts to life the tale behind the striking song. Sing J Lee said “The song felt like a bittersweet celebration of a period of time that was once so beautiful, but had come to an end...The video, the colours and the otherworldly atmosphere I wanted to create were symbolic of all the themes in the lyrics, matched by the poignant performances by both talented artists. It really drove home our ending, as they separated and moved away from a world they had once created in their minds and found so magical.”
OPEN MIC UK WINNER BIRDY - RIVER STUDIOS
One of Open Mic UK winner Birdy’s prizes for winning the competition was studio time at long-term Open Mic UK sponsor River Studios, with studio producer Gareth Henderson. It was the tracks recorded with him during these sessions that lead to her eventual publishing and recording contracts. Open Mic UK winner Birdy has remained loyal to the studios ever since, recording the only original song on her first album (Without A Word) there, as well as working with Gareth on the vocals for her second album ‘Fire Within’ on a regular basis.

Casting his mind back to first meeting Open Mic UK winner Birdy, the Events Director for Open Mic UK, Chris Grayston – who first discovered the young talent, said “When we first saw Open Mic UK winner Birdy, it was obvious that she had a rare talent – for someone so young she had maturity beyond her years and I’m delighted that we were able to give her help to take the first steps towards her fantastically successful career.”
