Songs from the heart of nature,

inspiration from the depth of the soul.


Rúnahild is a free spirited ethereal folk & folktronica project, hailing from an off-grid wooden cabin in the mountains of Norway. Inspired by her healing journey and spiritual connection to nature, her music aims to hold space for others to explore their own inner universe. 

Since the beginning of the project in 2016, the intention has been to compose intuitively, by channelling emotions and energies, and weaving improvised songs and sounds together to create harmonies. The voice is the main element of the music, ranging from emotional and ethereal to raw and tribal. 
Throughout the albums, the organic sound of various folk instruments and drums has gradually been merged with the atmospheric vibe of the synthesiser and rhythmic electronic beat. Her new album Of Darkness and Light is her first full-length electronic production. 
As well as music, nature photography is an intrinsic part of her artistic expression. Her wish is to share her world of magic within the spellbinding beauty and wisdom of nature to inspire dreams.

On a personal level, Rúnahild started the process of being diagnosed as autistic in 2023, at 37 years old. This journey of self discovery and acceptance has inspired the writing of “Of Darkness and Light”. While she always had difficulties with socialising and communication, music became an alternative way for her to express her inner world, visions and emotions, as they manifest through melodies, sounds and lyrics. 
Rúnahild pours her very essence into songs, for music is her medicine and connection from the depth of her soul to the outside world.
