Lindy Vopnfjörd is an Icelandic-Canadian musician based in Toronto, Ontario, who captures poetically, in lyric and sound, humble and heroic human dramas sung spectacularly. 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 are legendary and known to everyone in Iceland who grew up singing along with their music. “You Will Know When It’s Right” was recorded in Iceland at the famed Hljodriti Studio, and 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 is supported by an artistic family and solid fan base that reflects the musical pedigree of the artistic community in which he is immersed.
