Agnes is a Danish singer/songwriter, she was raised in a musical environment and therefore has grown up to be a very talented musician. Agnes released her first album Philharmonics in 2010, this powerful album gave her international recognition and gave her prizes such as Best Debut Artist Of The Year and Best Female Artist Of The Year. Her second album Aventine was released in 2013 and there are some rumor about the third one coming out next year.
Her music is a wonderful exquisite combination of classical and contemporary music. Agnes versatility is clear in the way she includes and plays with both styles. Soothing, relaxing, happy music that transport you to a comfort zone, away from chaos, traffic and errands.
“The piano and the singing are two equal things to me – maybe not inseparable but very connected. You can say they are like two equal voices.” Agnes Obel
I´m profoundly in love with this Irish songwriter who you might recognise from the movie Once. Glen Hansard dropped out of school when he was 13 and played in the streets of Dublin looking for a future in the music industry. Since then he has recorded 9 albums and many EPs. His voice is sweet and his chords take me to a calm, worry free zone. His musical and vocal talent is beyond doubt.
