Multi-instrumentalist Ólöf Arnalds has established herself as a vital member of the Icelandic musical community, but it wasn't until 2007 that she stepped forward to pursue a solo career with her album Vid Og Vid.
Born in 1980, Arnalds began playing music at a young age and is fluent on violin, viola, cello, guitar, and a number of other stringed instruments. Arnalds became interested in international folk music early in her career, through she's performed with a wide variety of artists; she's a touring member of the Icelandic electronic ensemble Múm, and has also played and recorded with Slowblow, Mugison, Nix Noltes, and Kitchen Motors.

Abi Wade (cello.box.voice): a musical collaboration between limbs, strings and vocal chords. Her music is seamlessly sewn together, each beat, melody and bass line exactly in its place, to create songs that pull the heart strings and a performance that will beguile and intrigue. The cello, uniquely utilised, was the backbone to the four songs that comprise her 'And Blood And Air EP' – a set that strikes the listener with a singular blow, soft but undeniably affecting. Carved with a uniquely tailored blade, it is hard to liken her to any former artist, but similarities have been drawn to the independently distinct Arthur Russell, Joanna Newsom and Kate Bush. New single, the double A-side 'Heavy Heart' / 'Faker' is an incredible leap forward, revealing a beating pop heart beneath the inventive yet minimalist arrangements.
