Her riveting and sometimes shocking lyrics are getting the recognition they deserve
Minnie Birch is a singer/songwriter from Hertfordshire. She writes dark, plaintive, beautiful music about life, love, adventures and fairy tales. Chosen as number 7 in Buzzfeeds ‘Brilliant British songwriters to discover’ this understated yet beguiling performer is winning over hearts one gig at a time.
Following slots supporting Joan Armatrading and a stint at Edinburgh fringe, Minnie has been wooing audiences all over the place with tours in Iceland, America, Germany and all over the U.K under her belt. Her debut album received national airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 music and on BBC Radio 1 as Huw Stephen’s Introducing artist of the week. She is currently working on a new recording and looking forward to playing more music and meeting new people in 2017.
"Floundering" shows Minnie Birch to be quite the wordsmith, knowing not just when to sing, but when to leave phrases hanging to concentrate on the meaning, silence can say so much and Minnie knows how to use it, almost as an instrument to contrast against not only what is being sung, but what is being played
