Sweden's reputation as pop’s backbone is solid and the innovative YAEGER is its newest savior. Creating atmospheric, dynamic, energetic alt-pop with its influences from Stockholm’s hip streets and skate collectives to crunching transatlantic R&B, YAEGER flips pop music as we know it on its head with an unflinching, youthful vivaciousness and oh-so-effortless scandi-cool.
Born and raised in Vaxholm, in the Stockholm archipelago, YAEGER is the moniker of Hanna Jäger: a name fittingly meaning “hunter”. An artist with effortless charisma shining through every husk and beat, YAEGER is alumnus of the acclaimed Rytmus music school alongside pop powerhouses such as Robyn and Tove Lo. Driving two hours there and back every day, she used each second writing words that became her lyrics. Only very recently, she made the move to the city full-time to make her dream a reality. The second she dropped her first single, Now You Know, she created a buzz that’s showing no signs of slowing down.
