The fisherman

January 20, 2020. Kahnin is in the studio working on 4 new songs, which will take the listener into a new direction from his previous style. He is looking forward to seeing how is audience will receive his new music, as well how new listeners will enjoy his older songs. Kahnin is based out of Keflavik, Iceland, Singer-Songwriter Gudmundur Jens Gudmundsson, simply known as Kahnin, contains a swell of tumultuous strength in his music, an unapologetic wisdom about life, and a longing in his voice that is mystifying to the listener. Throughout his life, Kahnin has always been writing music as an escape from his everyday life. Spending years out at sea as a commercial fisherman in Iceland and Alaska, he now uses that part of his life as the inspirational backdrop to create his own music and story. Married and a father of two beautiful girls, in 2017, a friend of his recommended that Kahnin do something with all the songs he’s written out at sea. The outcome was a 5-song EP, recorded in the summer of 2018 by Arthur Pingrey, along with Leah Siegel (vocals) and Eric Doob (drums) in Brooklyn, NYC, with “Wonderland” being the first single to be released from the EP in Late March of 2019. Kahnin is still writing songs, and new material is on the horizon.
