On her debut album, Icelandic pianist and singer Anna Gréta, who resides in Sweden, enchants with subtle songs, her nuanced voice, and expressive piano playing that blend elements of jazz, indie, and folk. She is a noteworthy newcomer to the "Nordic Sound."
Anna Gréta
Anna Gréta is one of the most interesting young discoveries of "Nordic Jazz".Sophisticated piano craftsmanship meets a haunting voice and multi-faceted songwriting. She combines elements of jazz, pop and folk to create a Nordic sound that was born in her native Iceland. She grew up near the capital Reykjavík, but Anna Gréta's adopted home is Sweden, where she is a multi-award-winning rising star. She received the Monica Zetterlund Award there in 2019 and played at the Nobel Prize ceremony in 2020.
