Laufey confirms The Bewitched Tour this fall + “From The Start” 5M streams

May 15, 2023—Breakout jazz artist and multi-instrumentalist Laufey is taking her lauded live show back on the road throughout North America this fall with ‘The Bewitched Tour.’ The new dates follow summer tours in Australia and Asia, as well as a headlining performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in September, which all sold-out immediately. The Bewitched Tour will make stops at iconic venues including San Francisco’s Fillmore, Chicago’s Thalia Hall, Los Angeles’ Theatre at the Ace Hotel, New York City’s Town Hall, Washington DC’s Lincoln Theatre, Boston’s The Wilbur and many more. General on-sale begins Friday, May 19 at 10am local time. Tickets available HERE. See below for full routing.  

Last week, Laufey unveiled a new track, “From The Start,” via AWAL Recordings. The track amassed over 1 million streams on Spotify in the first 24 hours, and 5 million global streams across all streaming platforms since its release.“From The Start” is the first taste of much more new original music to come from Laufey later this year.

Laufey (pronounced lāy-vāy) is a 24-year-old, 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, while still a student at Berklee College of Music, Laufey released her debut single “Street by Street,” which went on to top the Icelandic radio charts. Following the release of her 2021 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. Her debut full-length Everything I Know About Love, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Alternative New Artist Album chart, and the lead single “Valentine” peaked at #1 on the Spotify Jazz Chart. In 2022 Laufey was the most streamed jazz artist on Spotify, with 425 million streams across all platforms.

“Laufey’s timeless, low-and-slow style warmly blends jazz, classical and pop, vividly soundtracking the young Icelander’s own tender age.”—NPR Music

“Mixing pop with classical flourishes, Laufey captures everyday emotions, like falling in love, and elevates them with a degree of musicality and flair 

that is anything but ordinary.”—The Fader

“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.”—Consequence
