Channeling Stevie Nicks, Rock/Pop’s newest weapon, Iris, is ready to shake up 2019. Raised in New Jersey with an Icelandic heritage, this prolific singer and songwriter pens music that strikes listeners in the heart - specifically ones going through heartbreak, and ones going through the journey of finding happiness. Citing Parkinson’s Disease, equality, and positivity as some of her most impassioned causes, Iris strives to enlighten and strengthen each and every listener through positive messages and heart-wrenching lyrics.
With her newest single, “Crazy”, being featured on Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix, in addition to more music on the way, Iris is just getting started.
Where did you grow up and what is your best childhood memory?
I grew up in Freehold, NJ. I loved our vacations down at the beach; summers on the east coast are my favorite for sure.
What has been your best experience as an artist?
Performing in front of thousands of people night after night on tour with The 1975 was such an amazing experience. Those guys are awesome and so much fun! Getting the chance to meet everyone and hang out after the shows were the best part! I can't wait to do that again.
Name one piece of career advice you always give.
Never give up on what you want or what you believe in. Nothing good comes easy and it definitely doesn't happen overnight. Just stay positive, persistent and always be patient.
What’s the worst career advice you’ve ever received?
If you haven't "made it" by now then you should give up. NOPE! Haha.
Who is your favourite person to follow on social media ?
I love following fashion bloggers and interior bloggers. Besides music, those are my 2 biggest interests.
What do you hope for most about, in terms of your career?
I hope that I can share what I love doing and do that for the rest of my life. I want to keep creating, performing and being apart of the most amazing community, music!
I’m so excited to be sharing my music with everyone and I want to thank everyone who’s been with me along the way. We've released my song, "Crazy", on all platforms, as well as it being featured on the new season of Santa Clarita Diet. We're releasing an in-studio acoustic performance of the song on my YouTube channel next week, so please look out for that. We're also releasing a full-length music video at the end of the month that I filmed back in NJ!
