I have a difficult relationship with jazz. My parents really love it, and I went to a school where jazz was considered the best thing ever, so I had to leave it be for a long time. But now I'm rediscovering it. I'm approaching jazz in a different way...Agnes Obel
I really like Berlin! When I went there, it felt like a big city and a village all at the same time. I didn't really understand the place to begin with, but I was very curious, and I came home and told everyone that I'd be moving there. It was a leap...Agnes Obel
I used to get very nervous before a concert. It's okay when you are in a band. You can kind of disappear. But when it's just you... yes, that was difficult. I would not say it is easy now. But when you do it for a long time, you do learn to cope.Agnes Obel
