Björk Guðmundsdóttir is one of the most critically-acclaimed and commercially successful singers to ever come from Iceland. Born in Reykjavík on November 21, 1965, the Icelandic singer and songwriter is known for her innovation in the genres of art pop, avant-garde, experimental, and electronic music.
She released her album Debut in 1993, followed by two more records in the ’90s that kick-started her career and helped her gain worldwide fame. The records that followed include Volta, Vespertine, Utopia, Vulnicura, Biophilia, and Medúlla.
With a four-decade career, a slew of Grammy Awards, and even a nomination for an Academy Award, Björk is one of the biggest names in avant-garde music.
