We’ve been tracking the progress of Jade Bird for a little while now. Since we first heard her breakthrough song Lottery, it was clear that hers was a very distinctive talent getting major radio airplay in what can often be a sea of mediocrity on some of the mainstream stations.

Her current UK tour is giving her the opportunity to show off her fine live performance skills, and those lucky enough to catch one of the shows on this run will not have been disappointed. There’s a rawness about her sound and a startling innovation about her material. She dutifully included the singles Lottery, Uh Huh, and latest track Love Has All Been Done Before (featured on the latest Sync List we should point out!), but there were no weak points in what was a superb show from a artist that we expect will be around for the very long-haul.

Setlist: What Am I Here For / Cathedral / Uh Huh / Good At It / Good Woman / Does Anybody Know / If I Die / Side Effects / Hold That Thought / Walk Like An Egyptian / My Motto / I Get No Joy / Lottery / Going, Gone // Something American / Love Has All Been Done Before
