Firewoodisland is the alias of Norwegian/Welsh multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Stian Vedøy and Abi Eleri. With dynamic vocal harmonies and a mix of digital and acoustic instruments, they create a sound that is atmospheric yet striking.
Their career started with two EPs (2014 and 2016) that quickly picked up streams on Spotify and radio interest on UK stations such as BBC introducing, BBC 6 music and BBC 2. After the debut album "Chaos Is The State Of Heart" in 2018 they gained even more interest, with praise in magazines like Clash, Atwood Mag and The 405, music synchronisation in TV series such as Netflix's Shadowhunters, Norway’s Unge Lovende and MTV's Teen Mom, as well as additional radio spins from BBC 6 music and Norway’s NRK P3 to name a few, they are developing an exciting name to follow. Firewoodisland has also been seen on stages such as Latitude Festival, Farmfest, Vikedal Roots Music Festival Norway, support for Bear's Den on Record Store Day as well as a handful of UK tours, with their distinct multi-instrumentalist setup and guest musicians.
2019 is a new chapter for Firewoodisland. With a new and unique set-up, two newly released singles and much more in the pipeline, we can expect exciting things to come. Mark Radcliffe from BBC 6 Music says about the band: “That's fantastically gorgeous. Bit Bon Iver for sure, but absolutely wonderful. "
