Happy New Year!

no comments

Dear listeners, friends, fellow humans, happy new year. Thank you so much for following along with me on my journey in 2019. It was a bit crazy (and I went through some stuff I wasn’t too crazy about), but all in all it was pretty good. I have a bunch of great stuff planned in […]

The Confession Killer on Netflix and My Concept Album

2 comments

I’ll be the first to admit I have a slightly morbid (and possibly unnatural) fascination with serial killers. Throughout the years I’ve read countless books and watched scores of documentaries about various twisted and evil murderers, sometimes freaking out friends and family. But what can I say? The evil that men do just fascinates me. […]

My Visit To Nashville

no comments

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

2 comments

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

6 comments

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 […]

Some exciting news, everybody! I’m going to Nashville, Tennessee, to play the first Melodica festival there. Those of you who know me have probably heard me talk about the Melodica festival before. If not, I have a post about it here. Basically, the Melodica festival is a volunteer based international singer-songwriter festival, where artists get […]

Melodica Festival

I want to tell you about the Melodica festival, my favorite music festival, and in my opinion the best place for any music lover. I play there every year. Here’s me playing it for the 10th time: If you’re reading this, I assume you love music. If you don’t, what’s wrong with you? Anyway. Music […]

Some of my work for theater

Í skugga Sveins

I’ve been on the Icelandic folk music scene for about 15 years. I have released a solo album, as well as a few other things, and have traveled to various countries to perform, including Austria, Monaco, The Czech Republic, England, Denmark and more. It’s all been wonderful. But some of the best stuff I’ve done […]

My ink (and the stories behind it)

One Bad Ink

4 comments

So, I’ve never claimed to be particularly normal. And frankly, you probably wouldn’t be reading this at all if I was. But here we are. Anyway, I recently got my first tattoo. At 36. I’ve been wanting one for many, many years. But I guess it’s the same as with my music. I just keep […]

A ghost who loves sad songs

A Ghost who loves sad songs

no comments

This is a story about death. And life. And ghosts who enjoy sad songs. You know, the usual. Look, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Sad songs make me happy. Do you agree? There’s some sort of cleansing in a properly sad song. My favorites are songs that might sound fairly uplifting, […]
