Last night Ásgeir performed at the European Border Breakers Awards 2014 in Groningen, Netherlands, and was selected as one of 10 winners of the EBBA Award. Ásgeir is the second Icelandic artist to win this award, after Of Monsters and Men in 2013. Check out the list of winners here and watch his EBBA interview below:
At just 21 years of age Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir has become a sensation in his domestic music scene - staggeringly, almost 10% of the Icelandic population now own his debut album ‘Drýrð í dauðaþögn’ - the English version, translated by John Grant, will be released worldwide on January 27th 2014 as ‘In the Silence’. The Icelandic version has now gone triple platinum and won Ásgeir 4 Iceland Music Awards and a nomination for the Nordic Music Prize earlier this year.
