- Songs from the heart of nature, inspiration from the depth of the soul -

Runahild is a nature soul whose love for nature gives birth to her artistic expression through music and photography. She lives of the land on an organic mountain farm in Western Norway, following the rythm of the northern seasons.

Runahild created her first one-woman project Eliwagar in 2006. She has composed and released several albums of heathen folk/folk rock music during its 10 years of existence. In 2016, she decided to end Eliwagar and release her music as Runahild, which she has been using as her artist name since 2005. This decision was mainly influenced by a shift of inspiration from dreaming herself in a far distant past to expressing personal spiritual experiences that shapes her life and journey in this lifetime. She now defines her music as "ethereal folk".

 

Her compositions are either based on old folk instruments (lyre, zither, langeleik...etc), drum beat, guitar or sometimes just a melody that comes to her as she sings freely. Some songs and elements of Runahild's work are based on improvised recordings to channel and express raw energies, atmosphere and emotions; creating a soundscape that gives her releases a natural feel.

She is as well very inspired from drum circles and drum journeys where she experiences how everyone can harmonize to one an other spontaneously. The ecstatic drum rythms transcend the soul and the rising flow of energy opens up to visions, like an inner landscape being drawn before the soul, inviting to wander within the ethereal realm.
