Hildur is an electronic pop artist from Iceland. She can play the cello, guitar, synth, ukulele and Japanese koto harp as well as produce music digitally. Although she doesn't yet have a full studio album, Hildur's singles have been instant hits, including 2016's "I'll Walk With You" and her newest single, "Picture Perfect."

Beyond her solo work, Hildur — whose full name is Hildur Kristín Stefánsdóttir — has also performed in the band, Rökkurró. At Iceland Airwaves 2017, The Current's Mark Wheat interviewed Hildur and saw her perform at the art museum in Akureyri. This year, Wheat welcomes Hildur to The Current's sessions at the Skúli Craft Bar in Reykjavik.

Hildur will perform in New York City on December 4; here is a sample of what fans there will be able to experience at that show.
