Born in Trondheim and based in Oslo, Jakob Ogawa is a Norwegian singer-songwriter whose soft, smooth vocals top off his chillout indie pop. With a combination of jazzy chords, steel drum sounds, and bubbly synths, his debut single, "You'll Be On My Mind", arrived in January 2016 via Diamond Club. In 2017, Ogawa signed with Playground Music, toured in support of Metronomy, and released the five-track EP Bedroom Tapes. It included the single "You Might Be Sleeping", a duet with lo-fi singer/songwriter Clairo. He followed it in April 2018 with "Velvet Light", also for Playground.
