Well, I’ve been keeping busy. I’m putting the finishing touches on my new album, I have my first single in Icelandic coming soon and I’m playing my first live performance of this year tomorrow. But I’ve also taken the time to watch some Netflix with my family. And recently they released a new film by Will […]

Down By the River – Neil Young Cover

no comments

A few years ago I recorded this cover with my band for a Neil Young cover competition. We lost. But I kind of like our rendition nevertheless, so I decided to put together a little video for it. Hope you like it. 🙂

In My Mind – Duet with Svavar Knútur

no comments

I’m so excited about this! I just recorded a duet with one of my best friends and one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Svavar Knútur. There’s a premiere happening, so if you can join that live, that would be awesome. If you’re reading this after that took place, I just hope you love our version of […]

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 Folk Band’s New Single

4 comments

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 folk band Góða fólkið live! (Full concert)

no comments

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 […]

I’m Going To Nashville!

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 […]

Lock This Door – Patreon Sample

no comments

Hey! Bat signal time! This is the part of our relationship when I ask you to help me out. (Spoiler alert: Being a singer-songwriter is not a high-paying gig.) As you may know, I have a Patron Club. It’s sort of like Patreon, if you’re familiar with that, but it’s hosted on my site so […]

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 […]

Tom Traubert’s Blues (Tom Waits cover)

Tom Traubert's Blues (One Bad Day cover)

20 comments

I just thought I’d post a fun little Tom Waits cover here on my little web site. I recorded this a few years ago when I was experimenting with an effects processor I was using (sold it since). I’ve always loved singing this song, and do it live regularly. Maybe you’ll catch me doing it […]
