Agnes Obel music is delicate and intricate. Her songs weave stories in the listener’s imagination, urged on by the gentle piano that accompanies her sweet voice. These stories conjure imagery of nature, longing and the adventure of exploring. Lush and exquisitely arranged, it is easy to become lost in the world she creates through lush strings and echoing vocals.
The Danish singer-songwriter Agnes Obel shot to fame with her breakthrough debut album 'Philharmonics' in October 2010, which went on to go 5x platinum in Denmark, platinum in Belgium, Platinum in France and gold in Netherlands. Obel's second album 'Aventine' (2013) gave the songstress her second number one album in Denmark and Belgium, going gold in Denmark.
At the Danish Music Awards in November 2011, Agnes Obel won an impressive five prizes: Best Album Of The Year, Best Pop Release Of The Year, Best Debut Artist Of The Year, Best Female Artist Of The Year and Best Songwriter Of The Year all for her debut album ‘Philharmonics’.
