This week we introduce you to Fjer, a Danish vocalist and producer based in the US. She started her music project Fjer when she moved to NYC to follow her dreams after studying at the Royal Academy of Music. She totally embraces the freedom that comes with not being signed with a major label and likes to do things her way.
Fjer means “feathers” in Danish and it describes her sound perfectly. Fjer’s electro-soul tracks transport us into a completely unique soundscape, with a voice so airy and dreamy it blends flawlessly with the vivid electro atmosphere.
Her very recent debut album ‘You Again’ is Fjer’s way of dealing with the voice in your head that tells you that you’re not good enough. She explains that the 12 tracks in this album helped her release the negative emotions circling in her mind and not let them get in the way of achieving her dreams.
One of the tracks on the album – ‘The Fact’ – features Spinnup hip-hop artist Lucy Camp for a memorable bridge. This is a lasting collaboration between the two, and not the first time they’ve come together, as Fjer also features on ‘Salt’ on Lucy Camp’s album Whisper released last year. Both Fjer and Lucy are on US indie label Quintic, which distributes through Spinnup.
Fjer is also quite active on her Youtube channel where she posts music videos, live versions of her songs, videos speaking to her fans and more. We fell in love with the video for her single ‘Awkward’, check it out for some serious 90s vibes!
To celebrate the positive feedback she’s been getting from her fans; Fjer will be hosting a release party in her home country of Denmark in December. The show promises to be an intimate affair as she’s set to perform all the tracks on the very personal album, and tell her stories of how ‘You Again’ came to life.
