Blackbird is a Dutch, independent singer and songwriter from Amsterdam, making a name for herself with fresh and exciting new pop sounds. Think raw vintage guitars and cinematic western strings, imagine the soundtrack of a Tarantino film.
With a powerful voice that recalls Nancy Sinatra, this natural-born performer will charm you with her sultry summer night songs about being free, heartbreaks, longing for the unknown, and losing your way once in a while.
Inspired by 90’s rockin’ powerhouses like Sheryl Crow and Alanis Morrisette, and 70’s legends such as Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac, but also by the music she grew up with, James Taylor, The Beatles and CSNY, Blackbird started writing her first songs on an old acoustic guitar in Berlin early 2015.
After her successful debut EP, One Of The Wild Ones in 2018 (with four Dutch radio singles, including Lost In The Middle & The One), Blackbird earned her third and fourth NPO Radio 2 TopSong with sassy singles Tell Your Mama (2019) and I'm Like You (2020).
Her debut album was released on March 13, 2020.
