Music video animated short and upcoming tour 

Hello my dearest dears!

Finally a little update! I've been taking a mix of very hard work and a hard vacation.

So, first things first! My first music video is out! For the song "Brot (the breaking)". It's an animated short done by my friends Jörg Zysik and Nanja Heid of Trickfilm in Bremen. I hope you guys like it. It's a dramatic story of maritime adventures, love and danger. Woohoo...

Please share it if you like it.


 

Also, I'm going on tour in Europe this September. Playing some songs and having fun and I have some T-Shirts and Gym Bags that I'll be bringing along.

New album, My Goodbye Lovelies, out soon - Plus European tour 

Hey my dearies.
Long time since I updated this right here. So I wanted to let you know a couple of things!
First of all, I have a new album coming out this month, called My goodbye lovelies. It's a collection of some of my favorite farewell songs (encores) as well as some covers that I love just a bit too much to let go.
The artwork is a bit feisty. I hope it doesn't scare you guys away. :-)


Second thing!
I'm coming to Europe on a tour, end of April until the end of may.
You can see all of the dates in my tour calendar just above. Hope to see you there!
As always, let me know if there's any songs you'd like me to put up here with tabs/notations and lyrics.
Love and joy,
your ever loving friend,
Svavar Knútur

Cruising through the U.S.A. 

Hey you guys,
I'm currently cruising around the U.S., using Amtrak  as my transportation of choice and just enjoying the heck out of it. 
Played some concerts in Vancouver and Seattle last week and at the Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, yesterday. I got to open up for the mighty Steve Poltz. That man is a one man legend! Shit! I'm so humbled right now! He showed me a new dimension on what can be done during an acoustic performance.

It's going great and I'm just super happy.
Just wanted to share that with you guys!

Tomorrow I'm playing in New York at the Rockwood Music Hall, room 3. House opens 9.45.
After that, I head on down to Baltimore and then to Charlottesville, VA for a concert with the coolest of friends, the Anatomy of Frank! YEAH! :D
Then it's back on the Train up to Connecticut to play at the Fire and Ice festival at Infinity Hall in Norfolk. 

Loving my life? You betcha!!! :D

See you guys soon :D
And as always: 
Check out my music on Spotify or Soundcloud  :D
Love and joy,
Svavar Knútur
