In 2014, Atli felt a calling to move back to Iceland and reconnect with his roots. Soon after, he started building up a studio complex in Akureyri and began his collaboration with the ‘Sinfonia Nord’ Orchestra, which has performed on many world-renowned films and productions.
Since returning to Akureyri, Atli has felt his most inspired. Once a place he yearned to escape, his hometown has now become a lifeblood for inspiration and inner peace and a catalyst in the inception of his
debut album. This notion of having gone ‘full-circle’ led Atli through a process of self-reflection to discover himself and his own musical identity.
Up next for the composer is the new Apple TV+ limited series Defending Jacob starring Chris Evans—premiering April 24th, as well as The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard releasing in summer 2020.
Atli is releasing his debut album as a solo artist on 3rd July 2020 on INNI Music, with singles being released in April, May and June prior to the album release.
