My KUTX: Jade Bird

Photo by Austin Price/KUTX

Jade Bird is a twenty-year-old British singer-songwriter with a penchant for crafting folk songs that rock (or maybe it’s the other way around). This week on My KUTX, she takes the guest DJ keys and won’t let go. Traveling across America for the first time, she’s partial to road-trip favorites on this mix, whether that’s Stealers Wheel’s sunniness, Dylan’s rambling, or the wandering poetry of Patti Smith, the Smiths, and Elliott Smith. Hear Jade Bird’s My KUTX on Saturday, May 19, 6 to 7 p.m., or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
