Lindy Vopnfjörd

Lindy Vopnfjörd is an Icelandic-Canadian musician with the rare ability to capture poetically in lyric and sound the profound nuance in modern stories. Humble and heroic human dramas are seldom sung so spectacularly as this. Vopnfjörd is a proficient storyteller who distills human experience into the vital emotions that define a moment so crisply and memorably. On his seventh album, You Will Know When It’s Right, Vopnfjord teams up with Iceland’s most beloved band, Nydonsk. Together for more than 30 years, Nydonsk is a national treasure that everyone in Iceland has grown up singing along with. You Will Know When It’s Right was recorded in Iceland at the famed Hljodriti Studio and the album also includes a live performance with the band at their concert at Eldborg Harpa in Reykjavik. The album was recorded and mixed in Reykjavik by Addi 800 (Bjork, Blur, Sigur Ros) and mastered by Steve Fallone (Kacey Musgraves, Arcade Fire, The War on Drugs) in New York.

Residing now in Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood, Vopnfjörd and his ongoing artistry are both a testament to the continued support of an artistic family, and a reflection of the musical pedigree of the artistic community in which he is immersed.
