Event Description:

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I will be postponing tomorrow’s show in Denver as well as the rest of my USA/Canada tour dates. My priority here is for everyone to always feel safe, and given the influx of rapidly changing information every day due to COVID-19, I felt it best to postpone the tour.

Refunds are available at the point of purchase and I am currently looking into trying to reschedule dates for those of you that would like to hold on to tickets. Stay tuned for when that may be. Stay safe and hope to see you all soon.

 

Ásgeir is a singer-songwriter from Iceland. With the release of ‘Dyrd i daudathogn’, at just 20 years of age Icelandic singer- songwriter Ásgeir became something of an overnight sensation in his country’s music scene – breaking all records to become Iceland’s fastest selling debut album by a domestic artist.

That was reinstated at the Iceland Music Awards that took place on February 20th, Asgeir making an impressive sweep of the board, picking up Best Pop/Rock Album, Best Newcomer, Icelandicmusic.com
Award for online achievement and the Public Choice Award.

Produced by Gudmundur Kristinn Jonsson, Dyrd í dauðathogn (‘In the Silence’) immediately recalls the heavenly vocals of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and light electronic touch of British glitch pop sensation James Blake. In Iceland, the unusual poetry of lyrics have attracted almost as
much attention as the music itself, in part because they are mostly written by Ásgeir’s 72 year old father.

The songs themselves, however, are all Ásgeir: light and airy, inset with his distinctive melancholic voice their vibrancy elevates their appeal way beyond the folktronica tag.

One such fan of Dyrd i daudathogn was John Grant (‘Queen Of Denmark’) – currently resident of Iceland himself – who has collaborated with Ásgeir to create an English language version, ‘In The Silence’, which is out now.
