Arny Margret is a 21 year old singer-songwriter from the Westfjords of Iceland.
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.
Arny Margret has spent the last year making waves, not only in her Icelandic hometown but across Europe and the US, touring extensively, supporting Blake Mills and Pino Palladino, Leif Vollebekk, playing Newport Folk Festival, Reykjavik Calling, Iceland Airwaves and more.
She released her anticipated debut EP to critical acclaim in February and now she’s released her debut album, ‘They Only Talk About The Weather’ which was released in October of last year.
Now Arny is working on a new EP which is expected to be released in the coming months.
Arny Margret was nominated as the newcomer at the Icelandic Music awards 2022 and received an award for Best New Act 2022 at Iceland Airwaves Plus Awards
