Gudrid Hansdottir

Way out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, between Iceland and Scotland, is a cluster of 18 small islands called the Faroe Islands. Thats 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 shared a high interest in Music. She loved going through her fathers vinyl records and she discovered great artists like Kate Bush, Dolly Parton, Jethro Tull and Jimi Hendrix. Her father was a highly skilled guitar player on the Faroes and on Gudrid’s 14 year old birthday he taught her a couple of guitar chords and she started writing songs of her own. In 2007 Gudrid finally released her debut album Love is Dead, which featured old and new songs. It was well received by critics and the same year she won the award “Best Female Artist” at the Planet Awards (Faroese Music Awards). After her first album Gudrid performed in Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Germany with great success. Her self-released second album, The Sky Is Opening (2009), quickly became the bestselling album on the Faroes and was awarded the Faroese Planet Awards “Album of the Year”. Her new album “Beyond the Grey” was released in June 2011.The new album is filled with catchy folk songs with great inspiration from the Faroese culture and the distinctive Faroese weather. At the moment Gudrid is enjoying life, writing music and performing on the Faroe Islands and around the world.
