Icelandic-Chinese singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Laufey brings a jazz-influenced, traditional pop style into the 21st century with soothing songs inspired by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Chet Baker, and George Gershwin. Like a younger sibling to more contemporary acts like Norah Jones and Fiona Apple, the musician made her official debut in the early 2020s with her viral hit "Street by Street," which was popular on social media platforms and caught the attention of famous fans Billie Eilish and Willow Smith. Laufey's debut EP, Typical of Me, arrived in April 2021. She later expanded upon that with her official first album, 2022's Everything I Know About Love. Born Laufey Lín Jónsdóttir, she spent her childhood divided between Reykjavík and Washington, D.C., absorbing classical and jazz music and even performing with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra as a teenager. Around this time, she also gave the judges goose bumps on Iceland Got Talent, performing a solo piano rendition of Grace Potter's "Stars." The next year, she secured a spot on The Voice Iceland with her take on Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing." When it was time for college, Lín was awarded the Presidential Scholarship for Berklee College of Music in Boston. While there, she picked up modern influences, collaborated with peers, and honed her skills as a vocalist, instrumentalist, and songwriter. After she recorded her first official single, "Street by Street," school was abruptly halted because of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the resulting worldwide lockdown, Laufey began recording and building her audience on social media, showcasing her instrumental abilities on guitar, cello, and piano and sharing her voice with fans around the world. "Street by Street" eventually reached number one on the Icelandic Radio Charts. She soon issued the tracks "Best Friend" and "Someone New." All three songs landed on her debut EP, 2021's Typical of Me. In August 2022, Laufey released her first full-length, Everything I Know About Love, which featured the bossa nova-inspired single "Falling Behind." The following month, she embarked on a sold-out North American headline tour.
