GDRN played classical violin for over 10 years until she began studying both jazz-singing and jazz-piano which ultimately lead her to start a singing career in 2017.
After releasing her first single “Ein” in 2017 and before releasing her first album “Hvað ef” she was nominated for the Newcomer of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards 2017.
She released her first album “Hvað ef” in August 2018.
“Hvað ef” is a collection of beautifully emotional songs with lyrics that are at once introspective, luscious, subdued and optimistic.
Her debut album won Album of the Year at the Grapevine Music Awards and the album was nominated for the annual Nordic Music Awards, which honors full-length albums from the Nordic countries. At the Icelandic Music Awards 2019 she won 4 awards for both album and song of the year as well as video of the year for “Lætur mig,” and best female vocalist in her category.
