This is a song that was inspired by the US election and the prevailing global political landscape. Darkness is the Day was written the morning after the election results came in and it echoes the feelings of many who were shocked by them. This song was released on Inauguration Day and we should all be wide awake now to what lies ahead. Produced by Aimee Bessada, Rebecca Everett and Todor Kobakov in cooperation with the Slaight Music Residency at the Canadian Film Centre in Toronto.

Sainte-Marie, Cockburn on the return of the protest song and power of music 


BY DAVID FRIEND · FEBRUARY 2, 2017 

TORONTO — Folk singer-songwriter Lindy Vopnfjord climbed into bed stunned on the night Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency, but he awoke the next morning feeling activated. 

Bristling with an urge to speak out, the Icelandic-Canadian musician wrote a series of lyrics that might’ve seemed alarmist at the time. 

And even two weeks ago, when he finally released “Darkness is the Day” to coincide with Trump’s inauguration, some of the words didn’t resonate quite as much…

NOW MAGAZINE: Toronto musicians to watch in 2017: folk and country edition

Lindy Vopnfjörð 

You may remember Lindy Vopnfjörð as just Lindy, the name he went by until 2013’s independently released Young Waverer. So you can file Vopnfjörð under “ones to watch again.” The Icelandic-Canadian songwriter’s stellar (literally often about stars) sixth album, Frozen In Time, came out quietly in late October. He’s throwing a belated launch party for the record – a stark, dark, torchy, autumnal and wintry meditation – this week.

SPILL ALBUM REVIEW: LINDY VOPNFJÖRD – FROZEN IN TIME 4/5


Lindy Vopnfjörd 
Frozen In Time 
Independent
4/5



By Stephen Lussier

For his sixth full-length record, singer-songwriter Lindy Vopnfjörd takes his listeners on a tour of introspection with an instrumentally sparse and lyrically potent album. The record veers away from some of his pop-oriented work and focuses on the sentimentalities of a folk singer, returning Lindy to his roots. 

Frozen In Time delivers an intimacy between Lindy and the listener. Recorded with producer, and longtime collaborator, Todor…

Exclaim! Magazine Album Review - 9/10!!!

By Emily Zimmerman 
Published Oct 28, 2016

9/10 

For his fourth album, Manitoba-born singer/songwriter Lindy Vopnfjörd has recorded a stripped down, but catchy and lyrically complex song cycle. The tracks on Frozen in Time aren't songs of love at first sight, or rebellious anthems — they're about the middle of relationships and the reality of politics, the conflict and comfort and negotiations that come with trying to make something last. 
  
The simple acoustics of the production and arrangements keep the…

FYI MUSIC NEWS - A Conversation With ...Lindy Vopnfjörd



A Conversation With ...Lindy Vopnfjörd

By Jason Schneider

As a country that boasts way more than its fair share of world-class singer/songwriters, often as listeners we must make an uncomfortable “Sophie’s choice” about which ones we’ll follow. Yet, from the time I first got to know Lindy Vopnfjörd about 20 years ago when he would perform regularly at the Jane Bond Café in Waterloo, Ontario, I knew he was somebody whose music would be a part of my life for years to come. 

It wasn’t just his larger-than-life…

String Fling has happened three times annually in Vancouver and was in The Province's Top 10 Concerts Of The Year in 2014. This is the first String Fling in Toronto.

Unlike your typical show, the String Fling concert is an evening where the music is all tied together by strings.

Each artist will perform 2 or 3 songs with Four on the Floor and the quartet will be performing in between each set with original pieces.

The string players performing for String Fling, Toronto will be Michelle Faehrmann (cello), Rachael Cardiello (viola), Kelly Lefaive (violin), Stephanie Chatman (violin) and Kiana Brasset (violin). 19+
