Hera is an award-winning Icelandic singer/songwriter who has lost count of how many times she has traveled around the world with her guitar. Her self-titled album released this July 2020 to critical acclaim and has reached #1 on the Icelandic album charts.
Hera spent most of the past couple of decades living in New Zealand, and has a long musical history, including: a Gold-selling record, high-rotation radio play, and support slots for the likes of Nick Cave, Joe Cocker, Amanda Palmer, and the Dresden Dolls.
She has been named 'Best Female Artist' at the Icelandic Music Awards, performed at the famous SXSW festival in Texas, and the iconic Glastonbury in the UK. As well as touring the world from Italy to Indonesia, Australia to the Philippines... even to Greenland, where she played among icebergs at a remote beach in Tasiilaq.
Her music is noticeably unique and has been influenced strongly by dual emotional investment in both of her cultures. Effortlessly blending foreign sounds and language with our familiar version of folk and acoustic pop, she will take you on a journey of discovery upon which you will hear a refreshing take on what an acoustic singer-songwriter can achieve.
