Nanna Øland Fabricius, born November 20, 1985, in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a singer and musician most commonly known by her stage name Oh Land. She is currently living in New York City. Daughter of an opera singer and an organist, she is a former student of the Royal Swedish Ballet and the Royal Danish Ballet. However, a fractured disk in her spine stopped her dancing career, which devastated her and prompted the move to the creation of music.

In 2008 she debuted with the EP, “Fauna.” She returned in 2010 with her debut single, “Sun of a Gun” from her debut full length album, “Oh Land.” The single reached #18 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The album, which features production from Dan Carey, Dave McCracken and Pharrell Williams, was released via Epic in 2011.
