From The Start
Laufey is a singer and songwriter initially from Iceland. She studied piano and cello as a child. When she was 15, she was a guest soloist with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. She went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, and that’s when she began writing songs. While she was nonetheless a scholar, she had a number one hit on Icelandic radio. Her first album debuted at number one on Billboard’s Alternative New Artist chart. Her second album, Bewitched, came out in September 2023. And for this episode, I talked to Laufey in regards to the breakout hit from that new album: a tune known as “From The Start.”
