SESSION: Ásgeir

Ásgeir Trausti

Classically trained Ásgeir Trausti mixes the raw powerful sound of his tender vocals, acoustic guitar and piano with modern electronic features on his debut album Dýrð í dauðaþögn. The Icelandic singer/song writer released his debut album to critical acclaim in Iceland taking home 4 awards at the Iceland Music Awards including, Best Album and Best Newcomer. He’s currently in the process of rewriting Dýrð í dauðaþögn into English with a helping hand from John Grant. Ásgeir and his band took time out during Roskilde Festival to come perform Going Home and Lupin Intrigue.
