With his home grown and self-taught approach to songwriting, Icelandic singer-songwriter Snorri Helgason has been favorably compared to singer-songwriter greats like Paul Simon, Harry Nilsson and Neil Young. While his music resonates with past greats, his mixing of diverse influences of everything from soul to Britpop to glam-rock into his primarily folk-based songs—not to mention his Icelandic background—leaves us with something entirely unique.
His personal, understated yet intense live shows, whether playing solo or with a band, have garnered positive reviews from blogs and magazines from around the world.
He released his sophomore solo album, “Winter Sun” in Iceland in August 2011. The album was produced by Icelandic indie-pop great Sindri Már Sigfússon (Seabear, Sin Fang) and has received unanimous critical praise in the local market. He is currently recording his third album set for release in 2013.
