Ásgeir Trausti UK Dates

Ásgeir Trausti  is a singer-songwriter from Iceland who released his debut album last September.

Ásgeir has just announced his first UK dates as main support on John Grant’s forthcoming May UK tour, dates below.

Back home in Iceland Ásgeir is something of a sensation right now, the release last September of his debut album ‘Dyrd i daudathogn’ (‘In the Silence’) broke all records to become Iceland’s fastest selling debut album by a home grown artist.

During the last few months, Ásgeir has picked up no less than four Iceland Music Awards (Best Pop/Rock Album, Best Newcomer, the Icelandicmusic.com Award and the Public Choice Award) – and he has also been nominated for the prestigious Nordic Music Prize on the eve of his debut album getting a wider release outside of Iceland.
