Canadian/Icelandic Singer-songwriter Lindy Vopnfjörd to release his new album at Ottawa’s Alpha Art Gallery

Wednesday, May 29 2019 (Ottawa, Canada).
– Driven, as always, to support Canada’s visual and musical artists and performers, Ottawa’s Alpha Art Gallery is proud to host the release of Lindy Vopnfjörd‘s seventh full-length album, You Will Know When It’s Right, on Friday, May 31 at 8:00pm.Tickets $25 per person, 1 free drink included.

Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Canada, Vopnfjörd started his music career at an early age, singing traditional Icelandic songs with his family, helping shape this intuitive artist. By age four, Lindy was already pronouncing his “stand and care for the world” bent as an Icelandic-Canadian folk artist by singing cautionary songs against nuclear war. Now residing in Toronto’s Parkdale neighborhood, Vopnfjörd is a proficient storyteller who distills human experience into the vital emotions that define a moment so crisply, and memorably.

You Will Know When It’s Right came into fruition after an invitation from legendary Icelandic songwriter Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson, leader of acclaimed electronic band Gus Gus, to team up and collaborate with Iceland’s most beloved band, Nydonsk. The album was recorded at the famed Hljodriti Studio, and includes a live performance with Nydonsk at their concert at Eldborg Harpa in Reykjavik. In the album, Vopnfjörd is joined by Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson (vocals), Björn Jörundur Fri?Björnsson (bass), Ólafur Hólm Einarsson (drums and vocals), Jón Ólafsson (keyboards and vocals), and Stefán Hjörleifsson (electric guitar).

From his Victoria-based band, Northern Junk to Toronto’s explosive indie rock group, Major Maker, Lindy’s talents have spanned many musical outfits. From his earliest albums, The Humourous Years and Suspension of Disbelief – which he toured extensively through the UK – to his most recent, Young Waverer, Lindy has consistently delivered a high caliber of songwriting and musical arrangement that has garnered heaps of critical accolades.
