EIVØR

You'll be drawn into the space surrounding her voice.

Born in 1983 in the Faroe Islands, Eivør's early musical forays were steeped in Faroese musical traditions. At the age of sixteen, she released her self-titled debut album bearing the marks of this fruitful starting point. While an enduring love of Faroese culture remains at the heart of her work, its expression has been widened through profound interaction with other traditions.

"There is music in every situation you get yourself into." So says Eivør – vocalist, instrumentalist and songwriter with a voice of rare beauty and power – when asked about where she gets her inspiration. These aren't just words, as she has relentlessly pursued music since dedicating her life to it at the tender age of fifteen.

Eivør Palsdottir is now based in Denmark. Her music covers a wide musical and emotional range, with themes of love, loss, memory, freedom and nature.

Min Módir is a beautiful and well-recorded live performance with a lot of atmosphere. We chose this track because we consider Eivør very talented. We suggest you turn up the volume and let your listening room become the concert hall. The first time you hear it you might not realise that it's a live recording, but you'll be drawn into the space surrounding her voice.
