Icelandic Singer-Songwriter, Svavar Knútur, has seen his star rising steadily in the past couple of years. A troubadour of humble beginnings and rural upbringing, Svavar Knútur’s music tells stories of love, tragedies, sadness and redemption in a harsh and hostile climate. His songs and vocal delivery always seem to strike a chord with his audiences, along with his decadently charming on stage persona, his concerts at times comprised of stories within stories within songs within songs. An accomplished storyteller, Svavar Knútur loves to bring his audiences on a journey of misery and redemption with both comic and tragic stops on the way.

Svavar is set to release a new album, titled Brot (The Breaking) in the fall of 2015.
