Eivør Pálsdóttir

Eivør Pálsdóttir is a Faroese singer/songwriter with a distinct voice and a wide range of interests in various music genres spanning from rock, jazz, folk, and pop, to European classical music. Her roots are in the Faroese ballads. From the age of fifteen Eivør has dedicated her life entirely to music, and her roots in the remote and astonishingly beautiful Faroe Islands have been the source of her musical inspiration ever since. She is equally at home as a solo singer, accompanying herself, or with her own band, performing a mixture of traditional songs and her own compositions, or collaborating with musicians from many different backgrounds. Many of her songs are in Faroese, some are in Icelandic and the most recent tend to be in English. Her music covers a wide musical and emotional range, with themes of love, loss, memory, freedom, nature.
