Hi there! My name is Eyvindur (or Eyvi for short). I’m an Icelandic singer-songwriter who loves singing about the diamonds hiding in the mud – the beauty hiding among the sad and low down. I write good, honest Americana and folk music in the vein of Tom Waits and Nick Cave, and I like to tell sad stories, mixed with a good dose of humor, that can really cheer you up, perfect for those stormy nights when you just want to sit by a fireplace, book in hand, listening to the crackling of the logs mixed with the crackle of the vinyl record, sipping tea (or something stronger, perhaps) and listening to the wind in the eaves.
And if you are looking for that kind of comfort food for the ears, my music is going to dramatically enhance your life. You’ll have a better appreciation for the world at large, get a better job, meet better people and be at least 20% more productive.
(OK, that might be overselling it a bit, but you get the picture.)
Look, we’ve all been there. I have certainly seen some bad days. I’ve been through the ringer and come out the other side. Usually drunk. Well, I suppose we all have stories like that. But the point is I’ve used music to get away from some bad stuff, and in the process I’ve become an award winning songwriter for theater, launched a very successful crowdfunding campaign, gained recognition in my local market and had my songs covered by well known artists, at home and abroad.
It’s a journey, with highs and lows, and I want you to come along on that journey. So fill out the form on this page, right now, and gain instant access to my latest EP for free. Check out the music and join me. I have some stories to tell you.
See you on the other side!
