Lindy
Lindy
Lindy Vopnfjörd is a Canadian-Icelandic musician with the rare ability to capture poetically in lyric and sound such profound nuance in modern stories. Humble and heroic human dramas seldom sang so spectacularly as this. Vopnfjörd is a proficient storyteller who distills human experience into the vital emotions that define a moment so crisply, and memorably. Residing now in Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood, Vopnfjörd and his ongoing artistry are a testament to both the continued support of an artistic family, and reflect the musical pedigree of the artistic community in which he is immersed. Frozen In Time is produced by award-winning composer Todor Kobakov, who has worked with many prominent acts such as Lights, Metric, Stars, and Dan Mangan. Frozen In Time, like its title, will throw you back to an era where folk artists like Bob Dylan sang songs as calls to action against social injustice and when Leonard Cohen wrote you with a challenge to contemplate your attractions. Vopnfjörd’s quiet confidence permeates the album, inviting the listener in to his world of wisdom and attention to social consciousness, human rights, political oppression – and tenderness.
