BREAKOUT JAZZ ARTIST LAUFEY’S NEW PROJECT A NIGHT AT THE SYMPHONY IS OUT NOW

MORE ORIGINAL MUSIC TO COME SOON
Laufey’s timeless,
low-and-slow style warmly
blends jazz, classical and
pop, vividly soundtracking
the young Icelander’s own
tender age.

Breakout jazz artist Laufey’s new project, A Night At The Symphony, is out now on AWAL; listen HERE. The curated collection of songs was recorded a few months ago with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra during a sold-out two-night run at Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavík. A Night At The Symphony features previously released tracks off her debut album Everything I Know About Love and her 2021 EP Typical of Me as well as reworks of Hoagy Carmichael and Ned Washington’s “The Nearness of You,” Cole Porters’ “Everytime We Say Goodbye” and Icelandic jazz artist Elly Vilhjálms’ “Ég Veit Þú Kemur.”
In conjunction, Laufey premieres live performances videos for each track on the project, featuring the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. Watch them HERE.
New music from Laufey is imminent as she is gearing up to release her second album later this year.
Laufey (pronounced lāy-vāy) is a Los Angeles-based singer, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist whose jazz songs are about young love and self-discovery. Raised between Reykjavík and Washington, D.C. with annual visits to Beijing, the Icelandic-Chinese artist grew up playing cello as well as piano and became hooked on the jazz standards of Ella Fitzgerald after digging through her father’s record collection.
In 2020, the 23-year-old musician released her debut single “Street by Street,” written while she attended the Berklee College of Music. The song reached the top of the Icelandic radio charts and caught the eyes of contemporaries like Billie Eilish, Willow Smith, V of BTS and dodie. Following the release of her Typical of Me EP, Laufey was named Best New Artist in Jazz and Blues at the Icelandic Music Awards and hosted her own show on BBC Radio 3/BBC Sounds.
Laufey’s music continues to receive critical praise both stateside and abroad; Rolling Stone proclaims, “[Laufey’s] fluid guitar playing pushes the track [‘I Wish You Love’] towards bossa nova, while she buttresses her tender lead with long lines of sighing backing vocals that bring to mind the Jordanaires, who sang on hits for Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley,” while Consequence furthers, “Laufey deftly melds new elements of modern music with more traditional sounds of classic jazz, articulating the push and pull of love and loss with distinct eloquence.” Her track “Valentine” peaked at #1 on the Spotify Jazz Chart where it currently sits at #2, behind another Laufey hit “Let You Break My Heart Again.” In 2022, Laufey appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and was the most streamed jazz artist on Spotify in 2022.
