Music Monday : Agnes Obel



Searching for some fresh music this morning I came across Danish Singer/Songwriter Agnes Obel for the very first time. Her music is beautiful! I love the sound of soft piano with a pretty voice and she delivers with her lyrics being equally as lovely...

"Black turns beamy bright
Turning on the light
Today is gonna be the day
You hear somebody say
We need you wide awake"


She recently released her first album, "Philharmonics" in October or 2010. Another track and video -- Riverside is also quite stunning. Both of these pieces are little works of art, really. Give her music a listen and tell me what you think. Happy Music Monday!

You can find the album on itunes. (this link supports B*E)

Isn't she great. My Huzz discovered her a couple of months back and we've been playing her music for a while now. Wonderful voice and music.

Thank you for sharing this! I, too, love a soft voice/piano combination. Amy Seelley and Priscilla Ahn are two of my other favorites. Agness Obel is going on the list. :)
