Ásgeir

Label: One Little Indian

Icelandic singer-songwriter, Asgeir, may only be 20 years old but last summer he already made his mark on the Icelandic music scene with his debut album ‘Dyrd i daudathogn’ which quickly became the biggest selling debut album in Icelandic musical history.

Born and raised in the countryside of Iceland, Asgeir comes from a family of musicians. He trained on classical guitar but was aiming for a career in sports when he suddenly made a U-turn after being encouraged to take his music more seriously. He took his demos to producer Gudmundur Kristinn Jonsson and several months later his debut album was released in Iceland with great critical acclaim. It only took it six weeks to reach gold sales and less then three months after its release the album had reached platinum sales. The album has so far only been released in Iceland but an English version of it is in the making with lyrics translated by American musician John Grant.

Asgeir won 4 of the 6 awards he was nominated for in the 2013 Icelandic Music Awards including Best Pop/Rock Album, Best Newcomer, Public Choice Award and Icelandicmusic.com Award for online achievement.
