My Bubba

Sweden/Iceland

My Larsdotter and Guðbjörg (aka) Bubba Tomasdottir come together as the beautiful Scandinavian indie folk duo My Bubba. Together they make soft and soulful music that is both playful and powerful. Their special combination of warm harmonies carried on Norwegian Cittra (lap harp), guitar and banjo has taken their wayfaring souls far and wide to record and perform. They have toured with Damien Rice, co-written with Matthew E. White, recorded with Noah Georgeson, stepped on Bryan Adams’ toes, literally, and most recently worked with Jack White, who produced their impressive latest single, the spare and rumbling Gone.

My bubba is two young women [...] who sound like their generation's Simon and Garfunkel. With just a guitar and vocals, they are mesmerizing in their softer-than-soft, lilting songs […]. Their music or delivery did not change whether the audience was made up of 20 or 500 people. And the audiences' reaction - hushed silence - never changed.
