Good while ago we got the idea of introducing to Gayice.is readers some of Iceland´s best known LGBT musicians and artists but haven´t done much in actually doing so. But now is a good time, shortly after the successful Iceland Airwaves Music Festival which has been growing since first held in 1999. Among artists performing at the festival was a young Icelandic singer and songwriter, Elín Ey, who became known to the public after her first album release “See you in Dreamland” in 2008. Since then she has been busy performing in Iceland and abroad including including London, Brighton, San Francisco and New York.

Music is nothing new to Elín Ey as she has been surrounded with music and musicians since the day she was born. Her parents are well known musicians, her mother, one of Iceland´s best known singer and her father founding member of the Instrumental jazz-funk fusion band Mezzoforte.

Elín Ey is currently working on a new album but while we´re waiting, check out her song "Always a Reason". Check it out!
