Jade Bird Adds May Tour Dates With Anderson East!

Jade Bird is extending her spring and summer U.S. tour…this time with Anderson East on select dates in May. Jade has also confirmed dates supporting Colter Wall and First Aid Kit as well as festival appearances at SXSW, Stagecoach, Bonnaroo, Firesfly and Mountain Jam.

Jade’s latest single “Lottery,” out now on Glassnote Records, continues to receive critical acclaim…Rolling Stone Country hails, “There’s something infinitely satisfying about the mix of saccharine British pop and foot-stomping Americana that encapsulates Jade Bird’s approach…along with delightful wordplay and earworm melodies,” while NPR Music furthers, “At first listen, the song exudes a lovely, youthful innocenceBird’s inimitable vocals come in soft as she tallies the numbers on a first love that’s withered and waned…Turns out, though, this Bird has a bite, and with a fiery switch we’re thrown into a thunderous chorus that carries us from start to finish.”

Born in Hexham, U.K., Jade’s early life was spent mainly in flight as an “army brat.” One of life’s few constants proved to be the influence of strong working women. At first via her mother and grandmother, who largely raised her, but later the female role models within the musical subcultures Jade become obsessed with: from empowering country heroines like Loretta Lynn to iconic alternative songwriters like Patti Smith…Alanis Morisette’s “Jagged Little Pill” was a similar early touchstone.

Jade also recently spoke with Noisey about the influence of these and other women on her music…
