Is it still Americana when the artist isn't American? On her second album, British singer-songwriter Jade Bird upends the genre by weaving together country, folk, jangle-rock and even touches of Britpop. Producer Dave Cobb has worked with a slew of artists you can hear, like an audio connect-the-dots, in Bird's appealing sound: Brandi Carlile (the jagged little country-folk of "Candidate"), Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell ("Punchline" and its wide-open landscape), Elle King. (One more but whom Cobb can't claim credit for: Rosanne Cash and her excellent '80s-era country-pop stylings.) But Bird—who has said she was influenced by light-and-shade country duo Civil Wars as well as songbird queen Dolly Parton—also went to the BRIT School, the legendary London institution where Adele and Amy Winehouse got a musical education. You can hear all of the above in songs like "Now is the Time," which shimmers and shines like early Faith Hill accompanied by sunny Johnny Marr guitars. There are also Marr echoes on the excellent '90s college rock meets folk number "Trick Mirror," with Bird's voice soaring over bounding drums. "Honeymoon" struts atop a bouncy Swinging London beat; Both "I'm Getting Lost" and "Open Up the Heavens" stomp and pout, as Bird's voice soars from fragile to wailing power. On "Houdini," Bird—a child of divorce—uses the escape artist's name as an evocative metaphor "for all the people, especially the male figures, in my earlier life who came and went, without warning." At once bitter and wistful, she sings, "I'll make my day and trade your place/ With anyone who's not walkin' away again." One of the most surprising moments is "1994," a great rambler that, with its spiky and slip-sliding guitars à la Blur, sounds more like something from 1997, the year Bird was born. All of those references add up to something that feels completely fresh. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

How do you combine softness and strength? Jade Bird has the ability to combine these two seemingly contradictory characteristics with an exceptional voice. This impressive medium is also used to express her anger, as in My Motto, a song built in crescendo, in which she expresses her desire to protect herself from the feeling of unrequited love. Her songs - and general attitude - are dictated by simplicity, candor and authenticity that are in perfect harmony with the clarity of her voice. She observes the world and her contemporaries as they are, in rock'n' roll songs (the hits Uh Huh and Lottery) or those a little more intimate (Does Anybody Know?). Some are already comparing her to Patti Smith. It would probably be a little premature to go in this direction, but the young Briton is already offering us an energetic and authentic first album. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
