Agnes Obel

There is something gently effecting about the subtle beauty of Agnes Obel's music. With just her haunting vocal backed by a delicate classical influenced piano and the occasional guitar, this intriguing Danish Berlin based singer/songwriter has created something truly stark and original. Her debut, last year's Philharmonics captures her musical spirit perfectly. Led by the unashamedly quiet, atmospheric singles Just So and Riverside the album has sold very well across Europe and won her five awards including Best Album and Best Female Artist at the Danish Music Awards. Support here in the UK has come from BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6Music.
