My Folk Band’s New Single

Comments: 4

A while ago I posted a live show with my band, Góða fólkið (the Good Folks, or slightly more accurately, the SJWs). It’s a fun cover band that plays mostly Irish and American folk music, classic and contemporary, ranging from traditional folk songs to modern bluegrass and lots of stuff in between. It’s a lot […]

My Visit To Nashville

Comments: 0

Wow. What a trip. So, if you’ve been following along you know I went to Nashville to play the Melodica festival in Nashville. And boy, oh boy, I had a great time. There was music, a lot of extremely unhealthy and delicious southern food, and I may or may not have had a couple of […]

Introducing My Nashville Tour Diary

Comments: 2

So, as I told you a few weeks ago, I’m going to Nashville. In fact, I’m leaving today! I’m not going to be posting here a lot while I’m gone. I’ll probably put together a recap of the tour once I get back, but I’m not going to be doing a tour diary on here. […]

My Love Letter To Nick Cave

Comments: 6

So if you’ve heard my music or have been around me at all, it probably won’t come as a huge surprise to learn that I really love Nick Cave. He’s one of my all time favourite songwriters, and he’s been a huge influence on me and my songwriting throughout the years. Recently my wonderful wife […]

So, here’s a little treat for you guys. I was recently asked to be a part of a new folk band. I said yes immediately, of course. We came up with a wonderful name (in Icelandic): Góða fólkið (It means the Good folk, but also kind of means The Social Justice Warriors). And we’ve been […]

Melodica Nashville – Hjálpið mér að komast til tónlistarborgarinnar

Comments: 0

Nú vantar mig hjálp! Ég er bókaður að spila á Melodica festival í Nashville í Tennessee eftir mánuð. Sem er frábært, nema þetta er dýrt spaug. Og þess vegna er ég með smá söfnun til að hjálpa mér að standa straum af þessu og láta drauminn um að spila í tónlistarhöfuðborginni rætast. Melodica hátíðin er […]

Cry Me a River – Live stream

Comments: 0

Hey, guys. I just jumped on a live stream and played one of my favorite covers to do. It was a very short stream, but I plan on doing some longer ones in the future. This was mostly to test my equipment, and I’m very happy with the results, so I thought I’d share it […]

Your Love Was Death To Me – Svavar Knútur cover

Svavar Knútur

I have a favourite Icelandic singer songwriter (apart from myself, obviously (it’s important to love yourself (in a platonic, artistic way, I mean))). His name is Svavar Knútur, and he happens to be a wonderful friend. Last year, for his birthday, Svavar invited a bunch of artists to cover his songs, and put on a […]
