Arny Margret is a 20 year old singer-songwriter from the Westfjords of Iceland. Born and raised in a small town called Ísafjörður, she attended a music school from the age of six learning to play the piano. When she was 14 she got her first guitar and spent hours and days in her bedroom teaching herself to play it, slowly reaching the confidence to write her own music.

 

Her music and lyrics paint beautiful and yet painful images inspired by her personal experiences and surroundings. Through her music one can almost experience how it is to live in an isolated place, surrounded by tall mountains that block the sun for a few months every year. Her music can best be described as indie folk and although Arny Margret clearly has a sound of her own, she draws influence from the likes of Adrianne Lenker, Aldous Harding and fellow Icelander Ásgeir.

Arny Margret is currently recording her debut album at studio Hljóðriti in Hafnarfjörður, Iceland.
