EIVØR + SUPPORT

£16 / 14+


EIVØR is a vocalist, instrumentalist and songwriter with a voice of rare beauty and power. She relentlessly pursued music ever since dedicating her life to it at the tender age of fifteen.

Born in 1983 in the Faroe Island and now based in Denmark, 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.

EIVØR’s musical palette has broadened since her folk beginnings as her albums and performances variably have included jazz, country folk, big band stylings, classical influences, and trip hop tinted rock. As of late, she has consolidated these experimental inputs into her own style of folktronica with heartfelt lyrical observations of life as it unfolds.

Many of her songs are written in Faroese or Icelandic, but nowadays she seems to tend to write more in English. There is not only a great variety of musical influences in her music, we can also find various emotions. Her songs deal with love, loss, memories and freedom, as well as with nature.

She remains a voice unique in its intimacy, its effortless virtuosity and range of colours, evident from her first recording all the way through to her tenth album Slør from 2015. The english version of Slør was released in May 2017. She is always a riveting live performer with a vivacious and warm stage presence.

EIVØR is a much-praised vocalist and composer at the peak of her powers, who puts emphasis on retaining a close connection to her Faroese culture.
