Ösp Album Launch: Tales from a Poplar Tree
Hailing from the North of Iceland, singer-songwriter Ösp Eldjárn makes music that reflects the folk songs of her native country and absorbs the artistry of contemporary London songwriting. After studying classical singing and jazz singing, Ösp moved to London in the Autumn of 2011 to pursue a solo career, having released two albums with her brother and friends, as the band Brother Grass. Inspired by the vocals of Ella Fitzgerald, the stories of Joni Mitchell and by her own Nordic folk roots, she began to write her own songs and she has recently been performing in various music venues and festivals in the UK and Iceland.
Since April 2016, Ösp and her musical collaborators have been recording her debut album, "Tales from a Poplar Tree", which will be celebrated at a launch in London on 22 March.
Performing with her will be:
Helga Ragnarsdóttir - Keys, backing vocals
Sam Pegg - Bass
Bragi Ólafsson - Guitar
Valeria Pozzi - Violin
Stefan Knapik - Cello
Maric Røkeberg - Backing Vocals
