My name is Frida Fridriks, a.k.a. Hjálmfríður Þöll Friðriksdóttir, and I‘m an Icelandic singer/songwriter that has been living in Denmark since 1996. I’m a music teacher in an Art- and Musicschool in the town of Næstved.

I released the lullaby CD “Sofðu Rótt” in 2009. Large part of profits from the sales of that CD was given to the Icelandic fund “Umhyggja”, for the support of chronically ill children.



I started my music education at a music-school in the south of Iceland, where my mother Sigríður Sigurðardóttir, was the head principal. I began singing dinner music accompanied by my father Friðrik Guðni Þórleifsson at the age of 16, and have been singing in different bands ever since, e.g. the popgroup “Furstarnir”. I’m now fronting the dance-band “Frida and the Grown Boys” and the jazz quartet, ”Frida’s Lounge”.

I began writing my own pop country music 3 years ago, and is now planning to record and release the album “Lend Me Your Shoulder”. I’m asking for your support to make the recording, printing and publication of the album possible. With your support the release of the album will be realized!

The plan is to start studio work and recording with Danish musicians, under the direction of the producer Klaus Sandberg in the studio Frostbox in Copenhagen, as soon as the funding goal is reached. Photography and album layout by Aldís Pálsdóttir.





Here is a demo video of me singing my song “Lend Me Your Shoulder”, at a church-concert in Denmark in the autumn of 2013, accompanied by Martin Valsted. / Hér er demo myndband, þar sem ég syng lagið mitt “Lend Me Your Shoulder” á tónleikum í Danmörku haustið 2013. Undirleikari er Martin Valsted.

--- Icelandic description ---

Ég heiti Hjálmfríður Þöll Friðriksdóttir a.k.a. Frida Fridriks og hef verið búsett í Danmörku síðan 1996. Ég er söngkona og tónlistarkennari í tónlistar- og listaskólanum í Næstved. Ég gerði vögguvísuplötuna Sofðu rótt sem út kom árið 2009 og rann stór hluti af ágóða af sölu þeirrar plötu til Umhyggju, sjóðs til styrktar langveikum börnum.

Ég hóf tónlistarnám mitt í Tónlistarskóla Rangæinga, þar sem móðir mín Sigríður Sigurðardóttir var skólastjóri, og fór að syngja dinnertónlist við undirleik föður míns Friðriks Guðna Þórleifssonar þegar ég var 16 ára gömul, og ég hef sungið með ýmsum hljómsveitum síðan, m.a. hjómsveitinni „Furstunum“. Ég syngur nú í danshljómsveitinni „Frida and the Grown Boys“ og í djasskvartettinum „Frida‘s Lounge“.

Ég byrjaði að semja mín eigin lög og texta fyrir um það bil 3 árum, popptónlist sem mig langar að gefa út á geislaplötu og í stafræna dreifingu. Platan verður nefnd „Lend Me Your Shoulder“ og ég leita þess vegna til Karolina Fund og ykkar til að aðstoða við gerð og útgáfu  plötunnar. Með því að fyrirfram panta plötuna eða styrkja á einn eða annan máta, verður platan að veruleika!

Ráðgert er að hefja upptökur með dönskum hljóðfæraleikurum í hljóðverinu Frostbox í Kaupmannahöfn undir stjórn hins danska upptökustjóra Klaus Sandberg um leið og markmiðinu er náð. Ljósmyndun og hönnun plötualbúma Aldís Pálsdóttir
