The discography of Birdy, an English indie folk singer, consists of two studio albums, four extended plays, seven singles and six music videos. She began her career at the age of twelve when she won the Open Mic UK music competition, singing "So Be Free", a song she composed herself.[1][2] The competition brought Birdy to the attention of 14th Floor Records, which signed her in 2008.[3]

Birdy released her self-titled début studio album in November 2011. Produced by Rich Costey and Jim Abbiss, it consists of cover versions and original songs.[4] The album reached number one on the Australian, Belgian and Dutch album charts.[5][6][7] It was certified triple platinum by the Syndicat National de l'Édition Phonographique (SNEP), platinum by the Belgian Entertainment Association (BEA) and gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).[8][9][10] Four singles were released from the album: "Skinny Love", "Shelter", "People Help the People" and "1901", with "Skinny Love" peaking at number one in the Netherlands and number two in Australia.[5][7]

Fire Within, Birdy's second studio album, was released in September 2013. It peaked at number five in Australia and number eight in the UK.[5][11] Three singles, "Wings (Birdy song)", "No Angel" and "Light Me Up", were released from the album.
