Biography

Born Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson in the diminutive hamlet of Laugarbakki, Icelandic singer/songwriter Ásgeir specializes in soulful and intimate, electronic-tinged indie folk songs in the vein of artists like Ben Howard, Bon Iver, and José González. An overnight success in his native Iceland, where the then 21-year-old released his 2012 debut album, Dyrd í Dauðathognand, and quickly broke every regional record in the book (it's estimated that almost ten percent of the Icelandic population owns the album), Ásgeir's unique songs are made all the more idiosyncratic by the fact that his 72-year-old father provides the majority of the lyrics. In 2013, with the help of Iceland-based American singer/songwriter John Grant, who helped to translate the lyrics, Asgeir released an English version of Dyrd í Dauðathognand (In the Silence) on the One Little Indian label.
