At the age of 19 in 1997 this talented musician started a pop group called “Land & synir” and their first single made it to the top of the charts and stayed there for three weeks.They soon became one of the most popular bands in the country and that was the beginning of a great music career releasing four albums and writing numerous top hits.
In 2001 Hreimur and the band signed with the prestigiuos Warner company in New York and recorded an album for the American market. Fate stepped in and the album was never to be realeased. Due to the 9/11 attacks, everyone was cut from the label.
