About Laufey

Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Laufey brings a jazz-influenced, traditional pop style into the 21st century with soothing songs inspired by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, and Chet Baker. Like a younger sibling to more contemporary acts like Norah Jones and Fiona Apple, the Icelandic-Chinese musician made her official debut in the early 2020s with her viral hit "Street by Street," which was popular on social media platforms and caught the attention of famous fans Billie Eilish and Willow Smith. Laufey's debut EP, Typical of Me, arrived in April 2021. She later expanded upon that with her official first album, 2022's Everything I Know About Love, which reached the Top 20 in her native Iceland. Featuring collaborations with the Philharmonia Orchestra, the sophisticated, Grammy-nominated Bewitched followed in 2023 and brought the singer wider international acclaim, including a Top 30 placement on the Billboard 200 and the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
