An Icelandic singer/songwriter whose music embraces elements of folk, pop/rock, and trip-hop. Torrini was raised in Kopacogur, where she worked at her father’s Italian restaurant and attended opera school as a teenager. After releasing three albums in her native Iceland, she joined forces with Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal to produce her first widely released album, 1999’s Love in the Time of Science. The famed Lord of the Rings director heard her cool, otherworldly croon and approved Torrini to voice the finale music for 2002’s The Two Towers. Torrini followed up this cinematic achievement by co-writing Fisherman’s Woman, her first album for the London-based label Rough Trade Records.
