You may have heard of her. She’s the legend from Iceland with the avant-garde style who became known for her eclectic sound and creative music videos in the 90s. The singer-songwriter has won 4 BRIT Awards, 4 MTV Video Music Awards 1 MOJO Award and the Polar Music Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music for her “deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice.” The now 48 year old is seen as a musical genius to many around the world, inspiring current musicians to this day.

Bjork’s music career began when she was 11 years old, and since then she’s been part of multiple projects such as all-gurl-punk-band Spit and Snot, goth rock band Kukl and cult band The Sugarcubes. But what Bjork is ultimately known for is her solo career that sparked in 1993 with her first album, Debut. Named Album of the Year by NME, it went platinum in the US. Bjork has put out multiple albums since then and has most recently been focusing on a project called Biophilia, combining music with technological innovation.
