Svenni Bjorgvins was born in Keflavik, Iceland 1958. He started as a teenager playing the guitar and writing songs and lyrics for his own pleasure. He has played with many Icelandic bands through the years. Svenni says: 'It all started back in the 60´s when my sister Svala bought a guitar and took some guitar lessons. While she was at it, my oldest brother Siggi tought himself to play the instrument in a quick way at home, without her knowledge, and one day when she was tryin´ to play some tune, Siggi took the guitar and said: 'this is how you should play it' and played the tune like a pro! And that was the end of it for Svala! She gave him the guitar! And has never tried to play it since. We are three brothers in the family and we all play the guitar and other instruments, thanks to our sister Svala'. In the summer of 2001 Geimsteinn records released Svenni´s debut album 'Spilafíkillinn' which contains 12 songs and lyrics written by Svenni exept 2 lyrics by KH and MH. Svenni plays most of the instruments on his CD, all the guitars, drums and bass and sings lead vocal in one of his songs and most of the backin´vocals. With Svenni on his CD are four lead singers: Rúnar Júlíusson, a rock´n roll legend in Iceland, Tómas Malmberg, an upcoming vocalist, Guðmundur Hermannsson, with nearly thirty years of experience as a lead singer and a musician and Gunnella Hólmarsdóttir, an upcoming female artist. This is a good mixture of pop and rock´n roll music.
