Esther's Follies

Songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Augustine made a global splash with his debut album ‘Weeks Above The Earth’ and received two Swedish Grammy nominations for Best Album and Best Alt-Pop in 2022. His lush blend of playful, retro-scented soundscapes, soulful falsetto, and melancholic love stories has amassed 50M streams independently, with acclaim from outlets such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, KCRW, DIY Magazine, EARMILK, Ones To Watch, among others. In true DIY spirit, the acclaimed Scandinavian indie artist has grown a dedicated fan base of half a million monthly listeners, with the US as his second biggest market. His debut album was followed by a tour with sold-out dates across Scandinavia and Europe in 2022, and SXSW will be his first-ever live performance in the US – right on time for the first glimpse of his second album with the single 'Mary Cookins'.
