ELIN BRIMHEIM HEINESEN is a Faroese singer-songwriter who has been active on the Faroese music scene since the mid-70's. Elin is perhaps best known as one half of the duo NALJA, which in the late 80's released a cassette tape with very popular songs like "Á, Tann deiliga Havn", "Sjeikurin" and "Eitt dýpi av dýrari tíð".
Although Elin has been active for a long time as a musician, she has only released two albums: NALJA together with Kári Linderoth Jacobsen in 1988, where they wrote five tracks each and then the album "Yndisløg – Ein ferð aftur í farnar tíðir" (Treasured songs – a trip down memory lane) along with Ad Libitum, released in 2010, with different well-known evergreens.
Elin has been dreaming of publishing an album only with her own music, since NALJA was released in 1988, but has not succeeded – not until now. The album "Handan stjørnurnar" is a selection of 12 songs never published before. Elin has chosen the songs among all the many songs she has written since she started writing songs as a young teenager.
