Raw, Honest, Emotional, Gritty, Icelandic Singer Songwriter

I had been writing and performing music semi-professionally for over a decade before I decided to try to make this my full-time job.

And I’d like to tell you about the reasons for that, and the reason why it really matters to me that you’re here.
