The concert marks the end of a week of events held to celebrate the Nordic Day. As a way to honour Nordic culture and music, we have two Nordic musicians living in Iceland coming together for a concert: Tue West (DK) who sings mostly in Danish and GDRN (IS) who sings in Icelandic.
Tue West (DK) is a Danish singer-songwriter and producer, particularly known for his Danish songs and lyrics, who lives in Iceland. West debuted in 2003 and has since then released six solo albums in Danish, as well as an album in English together with the trio Jaruni, Moura and Wesko. West‘s music has recieved several awards and nominations for his work and albums in Denmark.
Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð Jóhannesdóttir (IS) , who goes by the artist name GDRN, has become known to all Icelanders in recent years. She released her first album “Hvað ef” (“What if”) in August 2018 which was very well received by critics. GDRN won five awards at the Icelandic music awards in August 2018 and was nominated to the Nordic Music Prize the same year. Her new album, GDRN, was released in February 2020 and has gotten considerable attention as well. Her music has been described as pop with a hint of jazz and R’n’B styles.
