Páll Óskar

Páll Óskar Hjálmtýsson (“Palli” or “Paul Oscar”) is a true Icelandic icon if there ever was one. He has been one of Iceland’s most flamboyant and respected Icelandic popstar of the last decade. Paul Oscar (born Páll Óskar in 1970) is a self tought singer and has been working as one since childhood. First and foremost known as a singer, he is also the most popular DJ in Iceland. He formed his own record company, POP ehf. (Paul Oscar Productions ehf.) in 1995, and his little company has released most of his own self-penned recordings ever since. Paul Oscar is one of the few icelandic singers who is capeble of performing big ballads as well as belting out house anthems simultaniously. His carreer in music is almost cut in half, the ballad half and the disco half. Paul Oscar is an outspoken gay activist.

Iceland is one of the most gay-tolerant countries in the world, thanks to him and the people who came before him and those who followed. He appears frequently on TV and radio, has enjoyed a working relationship with the latin group "The Millionaires", the easy listening group "Casino" and competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997 (with the song Minn hinsti dans) and has won awards as best male singer. His solo albums are Stuð ('93) Palli ('95) Seif ('96) Deep Inside (´99) and "If I won't sleep tonight" (2001) and "The lights at home" (2003) in collaboration with harpist Monika Abendroth. He recorded "Milljón á mann" ('94) and "Þetta er nú meiri vitleysan" ('01) along with the Millionaires, and "Stereo" ('98) with easy listening group Casino. All these albums are available as digital downloads on www.tonlist.is. In the year 2007, Paul Oscar released the dance pop album „Allt fyrir ástina“ (All for love). This album proved to be a massive hit and his greatest success. A creative epoch as well as listeners’ favourite, the album earned him the Icelandic Music Awards for “Singer of the Year,” “Net Voters’ Favourite” and “Listeners’ favourite”. It sold more than 16.000 copies in Iceland. His greatest hits collection „Silfursafnið“ (The Silver Collection - 2008) has now sold over 20.000 copies in Iceland at the time of writing.
