Hildur is a multi-faceted rising female pop star from Iceland. Her competitive nature drove her forward from sports through band life and finally to a promising solo career that is spiked with an Icelandic Music Award for Pop Song of the Year 2017 in her homeland.

The singer challenges herself in everything she does.

“I’m a firm believer in saying YES” she says, who sets up her next goals and pushes herself further and further. Hildur’s is much more than just a singer however. She is also a songwriter, lyricist and professionally trained classical cellist.

Of course, don’t expect sweet-as-sugar pop from her. This Nordic musician also uses her craft as a platform to spread a message of gender equality and positive role models; which she also embodies in life. Hildur’s self-awareness as a woman in the music industry and her need to lead by example for gender equality is noticeable in her music, image and team she chooses to work with.

Hildur has had an extraordinary career already, with much more to come. She’s toured the world in bands, and written for Iceland’s Eurovision entrant. She has a quirky personality and writes great songs, and is also is known as a women’s rights and gender equality activist – in other words she’s the perfect candidate for the world’s next pop queen. Her powerful energy, colorful live show and impactful message will make you want to throw your arms up and shout YES!
