You can only detect a whiff of an accent charmingly shimmering through when you listen to Agnes Obél singing her heart melting songs. Anyone aware of Emiliana Torrini or Stina Nordenstam will be familiar with this particular sound of this accent.

The 28-year-old singer, songwriter and musician once left her Danish hometown of Copenhagen to put down roots in the creative German capital of Berlin. She wanted to get inspired by Berlin's exciting hustle and bustle since she felt she needed more than Copenhagen could offer.

By her own hands she writes and composes, sings and produces - but not in one of the many reputable recording studios colonising Berlin. Her self released single "Just So" (which has been featured in a huge Telekom campaign in Germany) sounds just as endearing and intimate as its point of origin - namely Obél's bedroom. "It was an attempt to describe the situation of not wanting to face the day outside, something very simple and common, something we all know and yet a situation so very difficult to describe and share with other people".

It was in her childhood years that Obél discovered the piano and also made her first steps as a composer. "I started learning how to play classical piano when I was a little kid. Back then, my parents were listening to very different kinds of music, my father mostly jazz while my mother listened to stuff like Laurie Anderson and Talking Heads. Artists such as Nick Drake, Neil Young and Tori Amos also left their musical marks on her .

Agnes Obél started to develop on her own songwriting, recording alone on the piano. This songwriting that now has taken the shape of a brilliant debut album, set to be released this year. Three of the album songs have already been licensed for the new movie by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg.
