Islander Presents: JFDR


A busy week at HQ...

JFDR (Iceland) Irish Tour

22 Aug: The Grand Social (Presented by Homebeat & Islander)
23 Aug: Róisín Dubh, Galway
24 Aug: Connolly's of Leap, West Cork

Iceland's Jófríður Ákadóttir (Samaris, Pascal Pinon, Gangly) is no stranger to Ireland, having performed on these shores many times before. She returns this August for three select shows in Dublin, Galway & Cork.

JFDR is a blend of cyclical guitar parts, soft minimal soundscapes, and poetic wonderings of a journey that ends where it began.

Drawing from classical, folk, and electronic backgrounds, JFDR amalgamates the sounds of changing seasons, her voice a current that moves from rough seas to smooth waters. But perhaps JFDR shines the most in her capacity as a wordsmith, employing rich imagery to evoke the subtle emotions embedded in each song. Her first full length album, co-produced with legendary multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, was released March 17th 2017.
