Safir Aerial is a Danish singer & songwriter, based in Sealand, Denmark.
After graduating from the Rhythmic Academy of Music in Copenhagen, Safir has focused on writing and developing her own music, while also singing in various constellations within different genres of music.
She has also acquired broad experience from writing and performing with jazz-ensembles, big bands, soul-bands along with writing music for her solo-albums and tour-band.
In 2008 Safir released her first album, Safirsongs, a critically acclaimed collection of soulful songs from the songwriter, who here gave poetic songs a very melodic backdrop. With an urban sound this was a new take on the classic pop-song, feminine to the core.
In 2012 the following album “Closer” was released, and the vantage-point here was inspired by the Danish dogma-films. In only three days the album would be recorded live on analog equipment with some of Denmarks finest musicians: Lars Skjærbæk(guitar), Troels Skjærbæk(bass) Tobias Stærbo(piano/organ) and Rasmus Valdorff(drums). The vibe on the album is soulful, retro-inspired with strong accents of early rock in the organic set-up.
Safir received numerous accolades for this album, and was nominated for Gaffa awards in 2 categories: Danish Female Artist of the year and also Best Pop Album of the year.
Alongside with these album-releases, Safir lived part-time in Los Angeles, US, and had different collaborations with managements as well as other artists.
Safir is now back on Danish ground again, working on new material, and performing at various events.

Reviews of previous albums
Sangene er skrevet af Safir selv, og ligesom på debuten emmer den af sangskrivertalent.
Perler som f.eks. Come Home Tonight, Burn og Forget About It afslører et stort potentiale. Måske vil Safir blive slebet og opnå den anerkendelse, hun fortjener. Here’s hoping.
Det er en behændig og åben-øret Lars Skjærbæk, der har produceret.
Men det er for alvor Safirs fine sange, der sørger for sejren.
Med en retrolyd, der sagtens tåler sammenligning med Amy Winehouse og
Duffy, leverer Safir charmerende og personligt livets mest intime øjeblikke tilsat en fængende og sjælfyldt melodi og en skarpsindig tekst.
“mere undergrund bliver det næsten ikke”
“Safir har sangskriver-talent, den rigtige holdning og nosser, og sounden er lige i øjet.”
Alt for damerne: ****
“Safir har styret målrettet efter sin egen hylde, og det lyder som om hun har fundet den”.
“Safirs stemme sidder også lige i skabet”
