Classically trained, but writing always about the here-and-now, experiences are woven into Ásta’s songs like needle and thread. Some painful; all of them deeply personal. A singer-songwriter by nature but more so a storyteller, Ásta didn’t even start writing lyrics until 2019. It was the viola that drew attention prior, having picked one up when she was just three years old. Time spent studying in the Royal Danish Academy followed, as did stints as a soloist with the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra. Since penning her first songs, Ásta has defined her style with a direct, genuine and thought-provoking honesty. Connections are the basis of life, and Ásta has a natural ability to identify with an audience. Already, in her short career she’s already picked up a host of rewards to reflect the local excitement. 3rd placed and Best Lyricist in the famed Musikiltraunir (Music Experiments Competition), Folk Album of the Year at the Icelandic Music Awards and even Best New Artist at Iceland Airwaves. In 2021, Ásta will continue writing chapters of a story everyone should be hooked on by now.
