Born in Hafnarfjörður in Iceland, Sóley Stefánsdóttir grew up surrounded by music – her father was a trombone player and music teacher, studied the piano at Icelandic Art Academy and quickly sought her own musical path.
The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has attracted a huge following with her fairy-tale song craft since launching her solo career in 2010 with the release of her EP Theater Island, followed by her debut album We Sink in 2011. Later, after the dark, nocturnal theme of her sophomore album Ask The Deep (2015), she focused on more organic acoustic arrangements for Endless Summer (2017).
Sóley has wowed audiences worldwide with her delicate, dream-like compositions soaked in dark surrealism. She recently finished recording her fourth solo album, Mother Melancholia, slated for fall. “It’s basically a concept album, in a very abstract way, about the end of days, the end of our days, and the violence we commit against the earth,” she told The Reykjavik Grapevine. No doubt she’ll create the atmosphere to match when she performs her new material live at the Klub.
