Bon Iver – Skinny Love

Hi guys, I just had to share this with you! We all know the gorgeous Jasmine van den Bogaerde (Birdy) and her effortless voice with her ‘skinny love’ song. But did you know that the song is not originally hers? Personally, I think she sings it beautifully and effortlessly, she is an extremely talented young lady and I love her voice so much! But… have you ever heard the original?

Bon Iver, an American Indie folk band. They released ‘Skinny Love’ and in       2008 Bon Iver were ranked number 8 of the most listened too new music and was selected to be iTunes single of the week in the  UK. If you listen to their song ‘Skinny Love’ it really does make you listen to the words! Birdy’s version is amazing but the original is just phenomenal! Vernon, the main singer, seems like an absolute lovely, humble man with an amazing, legendary voice.

In 2008 it all really went big for Bon Iver, they were even featured in the NBC series ‘Chuck’ as well as ‘Grey’s anatomy’ and then they performed ‘Skinny Love’ on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman and a year later it was announced No. 92 in the hottest all time countdown! Bon Iver has had many songs become famous but my personal favourite was ‘Skinny Love’ and that is why it is my track of the day! Had to share it with you guys.

In 2010. Bon Iver made a song with Kayne West called ‘Lost in the World’ which was amazing and even featured Bon Ivers song ‘Woods at the beginning. Bon Iver is a legendary band and is definitely a band to never forget!! Enjoy the song guys!!
