JAKOB OGAWA to headline Manchester’s YES (The Basement)
22-year-old Norwegian artist Jakob Ogawa kick-started his career in 2017 with «All Your Love» that quickly became a tastemaker favourite. Later that year, his anticipated debut-EP «Bedroom Tapes» came out. The EP received critical acclaim both by domestic and international media, establishing Jakob as a strong name in the international music scene.
Jakob’s ethereal vocals make for a blissful contrast with the earthiness of his production, and it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that he is set to have a breakout year. He was selected as an artist to watch in 2018 by The FADER, leading to festival spots at Lollapalooza in Argentina and Roskilde, and a headline tour in GSA. Despite only releasing three tracks in 2018, the year was an incredible redemption for his career, experiencing exceptional streaming growth.
For 2019, Jakob plans to release more music than ever, and he will play his longest tour run ever: «Teen Angel Tour».
Jakob headlines Manchester’s YES (The Basement) as part of his UK dates, Sat 11 May.
