Lindy Vopnfjord is a singer-songwriter based out of Toronto, presently known for his protest folk songs from his new album “Frozen in Time,” which was just released to college radio, and is starting to hit charts everywhere.
Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Lindy Vopnfjörd started his music career early. Singing traditional Icelandic songs with his family, both his cultural heritage and musician parents shaped the intuitive artist. By age four, Lindy was already pronouncing his stand and care for the world as an Icelandic-Canadian folk artist by singing cautionary songs about nuclear war.
Traveling around with his mom and dad and extended family in a bus, he developed an appreciation for performing as a form of sharing. Touring comes naturally to Lindy, and to see him live is to witness years of honest delivery and authentic exchange with a talent who is as dedicated to a room of three as he is to a stadium-full.
Lindy has performed five albums’ worth of original music that has mesmerized, delighted and moved audiences from house parties and bars to embassies, theatre halls with Canada’s Whitehorse, and large festivals, such as Montreal’s Osheaga, Reykjavik Folk Festival and The Greenbelt Harvest Picnic.
