Icelandic-Chinese singer-songwriter and record producer, Laufey — Laufey Lín Bing Jónsdóttir — is buzzing wildly in the music industry by redefining jazz. Making a name for herself, the multi-talented artist has been garnering die-hard fans for her unique take on jazz-pop tunes. Well-versed in piano, guitar, cello and self-producing, Laufey is about to be the next rising star.

Raised in a musical-inclined family, it’s no surprise that music is a big part of her life. With a violinist mother and grandparents who were pianists and violinist educators, Laufey developed a deep interest in pursuing a music career. On top of that, her father also introduced her to the world of jazz, which greatly influenced her diverse musical taste. But, what kicked off her career trajectory had to be her love for the Bossa Nova tunes — the spark that ignited her goals.
