2023 was a standout year for Laufey. 'Bewitched' was the biggest debut for a jazz album on Spotify in history. It debuted at #2 on Spotify’s Global and U.S. Album Charts, as well as #23 on the Billboard 200, #1 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart, and #1 on Current Traditional Jazz Albums Chart. The album’s hit single “From The Start” is now RIAA-certified Platinum. In February, Laufey won the 2024 GRAMMY® for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album”, the youngest person to ever win in that category.

Los Angeles-based Laufey (pronounced lāy-vāy) was raised between Reykjavík and Washington, D.C. with annual visits to Beijing. 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. In 2022, she released her debut full-length, 'Everything I Know About Love', which reached #1 on Billboard’s Alternative New Artist Album chart. The album featured the RIAA-certified Gold singles “Valentine”, which peaked at #1 on the Spotify Jazz Chart, and “Let You Break My Heart Again”. Today, she has over 2 billion streams across all platforms and is the biggest streaming artist from Iceland in the world.
