She may be only 15 but Jasmine Van den Bogarde AKA Birdy is already making a name for herself with her own renditions of Indie Folk songs.

She won the Open Mic UK competition at the age of 12,winning the under-18s category as well as the grand prize against 10.000 competitors.

Before you cast her off as another Miley Cyrus wannabe you might want to take at the look at the two videos below,one of which is her take on Manchester's Cherry Ghost classic 'People Help The People' which along with her cover of Bon Iver's 'Skinny Love' showcases her haunting vocals to great effect.

Not the kinds of artists that a 15 year would generally choose to cover you would agree.

Her debut album is out on the 7th November and if it features more of her torch songs, it is set to be a treat.

A genuine talent with an absolutely stunning voice.
