Ragnheiður Gröndal is born in 1984. She started at a young age to play instruments, and first it was the flute that grabbed her attention. The piano became her next love and has been ever since but the word on the street is that Ragnheiður has started to strum the guitar. In the year 2005 she graduated with honors from FÍH (Iceland’s School of Music) where she studied jazz singing and completed the 6th step in jazz piano playing. Ragnheiður has always been a creative force in the Icelandic music scene and has released three solo records
Þjóðlög' (folksongs), a beautiful and a very special album indeed. Along with her brother, Haukur Gröndal, she has re-arranged old Icelandic folk songs for piano, wind instruments, strings and choir. The album was recorded last year in Iceland, Bulgaria, and Denmark.
