BIOGRAPHY:

Born into the Icelandic community in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lindy
Vopnfjörd started his music career early. By four, he was singing
cautionary songs about nuclear war and traveling around with
his musician parents and extended family in a bus. The digital
release of his most recent album, his career seventh, called
Young Waverer was on February 26, 2013. Ambitiously recorded
via “Crowdfunding” and only available via iTunes or Lindy’s
website, it is a soaring landscape of stream of consciousness
stories about love and loss, alongside unique tales about his
upbringing on icy Lake Winnipeg.

Bulgarian born producer/composer/solo artist, close friend and
music collaborator Todor Kobakov sharpens the production pencil
and draws a definitive mark in the mind with the twelve tracks
(he also contributes piano). An impressive Canadian musical
collective also brings their talents to Young Waverer in
Luke Doucet who contributes guitar to a handfulf songs and
Thomas D’Arcy formerly of Small Sins and Major Maker who
played bass, as did other Major Maker-mates Stephen
Krecklo and Ian LeFeuvre (Kathleen Edwards, k-os) and John
Obercian (Sarah Harmer). Young Waverer was mixed by Grammy
nominated John O’Mahony (Metric, Coldplay, U2) at Electric Lady
Studios in New York City.

Since 2006, Lindy has been the lead singer and co-songwriter for
the indie rock band Major Maker. Major Maker took by force in the
summer of 2007 when two of their songs, ‘Rollercoaster’ and “Talk
To You”, aired in national television commercials. The “Rollercoaster”
single debuted at #57 on the Canadian Billboard Hot 100 Chart and #2
on iTunes Canada Rock Chart, while the video was added to national
video outlets Much Music, MuchMoreMusic and MTV Canada.

Following the success of Rollercoaster, Major Maker released the
People Carrier EP in Canada which hit # 2 on the highly influential
CBC Radio 3 top 30 Chart’.
