Agnethe Melchiorsen, Singer - Female on SoundBetter

Hi there, welcome to my website!

I’m really happy that you’re here and I hope you’ll stick around for a little while so we can get to know each other a bit.

I can start by telling you a little about myself:

Ever since I was a child I loved singing. And writing songs. I started playing piano when I was six and since learned all the fundamentals; reading music, music theory etc. I sang my first solo part when I was in the third grade, and I’ve loved singing for people ever since. While in school I pursued as many musical opportunities as possible, and later went on to study singing and songwriting at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark.

After earning my bachelor’s degree I moved to Berlin to delve deeper into the art of writing songs. Which I did for a good while – and then I lost track. No, I switched tracks.

Long story short, I decided to move away from music and explore other paths. One of them lead me to both the University of Copenhagen and the one in Tübingen (in South Germany) where I studied German, and dabbled in Philosophy, Literature and Gender Studies.

And it wasn’t until I wrapped up my bachelor thesis about the dadaist literature as a hermeneutic challenge (!), I decided to release my album “Compass, Dresses, Lover; Gone” in 2013.

Then I moved back to Berlin – aaand then I deviated again. (I’m sure you’ll hear more about this time in my life, if you subscribe to my email list ;-)).

Flash forward to 2020, I’m back in Denmark, living in a tiny wooden house by the sea and the whole world is in lockdown. And this is where I decide, that I’ve strayed long enough. It’s time to get back to where and what I came from; it is time to reclaim my identity as a musician. For realsies.

So here we are. Me oversharing and you being mildly bored. 

But I’m so ready to work hard to obtain all the goals I’ve set for myself, and if you’ve read this far, I’m guessing you’re somewhat interested in following my process. 

So if you want to get to know me better and are interested in following my progress, other shenanigans and whatnot, subscribe to my email list. 

You can also browse this page, listen to some of my music and maybe even explore some of my other projects: 

“Skyggefugl” is a duo-project launched in late 2019 with my old friend and awesome musician Peter Clausen. 

“Taxapodcast” is a podcast about the Danish nineties tv-show “Taxa” in which me and my co-host Helene Hellesøe Appel discuss each episode in great detail! 

Thanks for sticking with me this far – I think, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
