Björk is a mononym of Björk Guðmundsdóttir (b. 21 Nov 1965), an Icelandic singer-songwriter, composer, music producer and occasional actress, whose work includes eight solo albums and two film soundtracks. She is known for including elements of rock, jazz, electronic, classical, industrial, ethereal wave and trip-hop music in her work. Her voice has also been acclaimed for its distinctive qualities.
In 2010, she won the Polar Music Prize in recognition of her "deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice." Her record label, One Little Indian, reported in 2003 that she had sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. She has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award and two Golden Globe Awards (including one for acting). For her performance in Dancer in the Dark, Björk won the Best Actress Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival. She was ranked #36 on VH1's "The 100 Greatest Women in Rock and Roll" and #8 on MTV's "22 Greatest Voices in Music".
Björk was born and raised in Reykjavík, Iceland. Her musical career began when she was eleven with her study of classical piano in elementary school. One of her instructors sent a recording of Björk singing Tina Charles' song I Love To Love to RÚV, then the only radio station in Iceland. The recording was broadcast on national radio - after hearing it, a representative of the Fálkinn label contacted Guðmundsdóttir, to offer a record contract, and Björk was recorded and released in 1977. ...show less
