Firewoodisland is the alias of Bristol based Norwegian/Welsh multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Stian Vedøy and Abi Eleri. Their emotive and dynamic vocal harmonies together with the morphing of organic and digital instruments, creates an atmospheric soundscape that is moving yet striking.
What started as a solo project is now the joint creative project of artists, multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Stian Vedøy and Abi Eleri . Hailing from a windswept west coast island of Norway, Stian met Abi after moving to Cardiff, to study for a master in music production. Abi, was at the time studying illustration, and the two paired up to form the band, releasing their debut EP, in 2014. Their latest sophomore album (2020) was a turning point for Firewoodisland, as the duo finally felt that they had come into themselves creatively. With all audio and visual being created in their own home, you pick up a little piece of their soul when you experience Firewoodisland’s work.
Inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Sigur Ros and Of Monsters and Men, Firewoodisland’s distinctive sound, christened ‘Mountain Pop’, is a perfect blend of organic and digital elements. 2019 saw the duo add cellist Simon Walker, with the occasional additional session musician, to their live outfit and they deliver an epic performance through the use of multi-layering and looping, reminiscent of James Blake or Jack Garratt.
