Icelandic singer-songwriter, Asgeir Trausti, may only be 20 years old but last Summer he already made a mark on the Icelandic music scene with his two singles, “Sumargestur” and the smash-hit “Leyndarmal”. Both singles belong to his debut album “Dyrd i daudathogn”, released in September. A digital presale on Icelandicmusic.com, a week before the release of the album, broke all records and showed clearly that Asgeir Trausti had already created a name for himself.
Born and raised in the countryside of Iceland, Asgeir Trausti comes from a family of musicians. He trained on classical guitar but was aiming for a career in sports when he suddenly made a U-turn after being encouraged to take his music more seriously. He took his demos to producer Gudmundur Kristinn Jonsson and several months later his debut album was released in Iceland with great critical acclaim. The album has so far only been released in Iceland but an English version of it is in the making with lyrics written by American musician John Grant.
When performing, Asgeir Trausti’s friend Julius joins him on stage for the lighter version but for a full-blown version Asgeir Trausti is backed-up by a band made up of experienced Icelandic musicians, including three from reggae band Hjálmar.
