It’s only May, but we can count on 'Lottery' being one of the best tunes to be released in 2018. Its author, Jade Bird, is a talented artist who spent her youth traveling due to her family being in the military. This caused her to interact with various cultures, which ultimately shaped her music.

Her debut EP, Something American, is full of universal stories backed by the perfect mix of country, Americana, and folk sounds - so who better to invite onto our 405 Exchange series? Check out our conversation with Jade below to find out more about her work as well as her many ambitions.

“I really do see music as a thing that comes from deep within.”

You can subscribe to the 405 Exchange podcast on iTunes, TuneIn, Stitcher, Google Play, and Overcast. You can also listen to the podcast over at Pippa.
