"Agnes Obel is a Danish singer, songwriter and musician who lives in Berlin. She began playing the piano as a child, and soon discovered songwriting.
Feeling musically related to Roy Orbison, Agnes currently lives in Berlin and possesses the rare gift of a songbird's voice, bringing to mind Ane Brun, Joanna Newsom or even Ricki Lee Jones..."

Beautiful videos and full album preview:
"...Play "Just So" to anyone in Germany and they'll tell you it's the music from the Deutsche Telekom television advertisement. It's the kind of exposure many an artist would die for, or the kind of publicity an independent spirit might agonise over - venturing into the commercial arena. Yet isn't it intriguing how a few bars of music can seep into our consciousness and set us off wondering where they came from?
This facebookish world of ours offers us the illusion of getting to know people we don't really know, who their friends are and what they like.
Agnes Caroline Thaarup Obel likes Alfred Erik Lesley Satie and Sonic Youth, Debussy and Dylan, Hitchcock and PJ Harvey.
She is from Copenhagen but she lives in Berlin. She studied at the University of Roskilde, a town renowned for a Glastonbury style music festival and home to a marvellous viking ship museum...
