Way out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, between Iceland and Scotland, is a cluster of 18 small islands called the Faroe Islands. That’s where Gudrid Hansdóttir was born and raised. Her music is a Lilith Fair-worthy blend of chamber pop and perky folk-rock and the past years she’s been performing in Europe and USA.
Gudrid started singing at an early age and had a keen interest in music. She loved going through her father’s vinyl records, who was a highly skilled guitar player on the Faroes, and it was through him that she discovered great artists like Kate Bush, Dolly Parton, Jethro Tull and Jimi Hendrix.
In 2007 Gudrid finally released her debut album “Love is Dead”. After her first album Gudrid performed in Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Germany with considerable success. Her self-released second album, “The Sky Is Opening” (released in 2009), quickly became the bestselling album in the Faroe Islands and was awarded the Faroese Planet Awards ”Album of the Year”.
Her latest opus ”Beyond the Grey” was released in June 2011 and the new album is filled with catchy folk songs with strong inspiration from drawn from Faroese culture and the rather distinctive Faroese weather. The album was released by German label Beste!Unterhaltung all over Europe and has been very well received by critics and fans alike.
