Further Information

At the age of 10 I started playing the piano and singing by myself, and for others. Since then I have been involved invarious fields of music, such as opera, jazz and pop. The magical simplicity of sitting at the piano and singing has always drawn me back to the origins. A few years ago I felt the desire to create my own album in this spirit. The songs, which are influenced by personal events in my life, have all been written in recent years.

I started recording in the spring of 2013, in Salzburg, Austria, where I studied opera. There I laid the foundation for the album and recorded the piano, in addition to the guitar of Julian Urabl, under the production of Michael Wacht. The following summer I moved back to Iceland. I continued recording in September 2015, together with the brothers and musicians Stefán Örn and Andrés Þór Gunnlaugsson. Stefán recorded the vocals and mixed the album in his studio in Garðabær. Andrés gives the songs a beautiful feel with his guitar.

On the recordings my vision was to create an album that feels close, sounding as if I were present in the listeners’ living room.

I am sincerely proud of the result. The album does indeed deliver the vision I attempted to achieve. Hopefully it will become the same gem to listeners, as it is to me.

Thank you for participating in this journey with me!
