A Short Biography Of Björk

(b. Björk Gudmundsdóttir, 21 October 1966, Reykjavic, Iceland)

Björk has been a part of the Icelandic music scene since she made an album at age 11. In the early 80's she sung for the band Tappi Takarrass and recorded two more albums with them.

She found success when she joined the Sugarcubes in June 1986 with Bragi Olaffson, Einar Orn Benediktsson, Margret Ornolfsdottir, Sigtryggur Balduresson and Thor Eldon, Björk's former husband and the father of her son, Sindri. She appears on their first album, "Life's Too Good", which earned them fame in the UK.

Björk went solo in 1993 with the release of "Debut". Her second solo album, and my favorite, "Post" was released in 1995, and made number 2 in the British charts. "Telegram", released in 1996 consists of re-mixes of the tracks on "Post" and one new song. Her latest, "Homogenic", was released 23 September, 1997.

Her songs are comprised of techno dance beats and whimsical lyrics and Björk's interesting vocal style. She has a wonderfull voice, and despite being small, she can sure surprise with a good loud scream now and then. I like her music because it is always fun!
