I am always making music, sometimes it’s rock, sometimes it’s flower power or whatever…but it’s always just the way I feel. Honest music without genre or label.
While spending over 2 years writing and recording the new Pain of Salvation album I accidently almost finished another album, working at night when everyone was asleep.
The artwork is a mesmerising make up done by my beautiful wife Soley Astudottir
There will be more to come, next friday and the friday after that etc etc
In the 2 months that have gone since I got back from recording the new Pain of Salvation album. I have been sneaking out at night working on new solo material.
It has shaped up to an album which is almost done and will be released this summer.
These are some of the darkest songs I have ever written but it’s still a lot more approachable than my last album The Hermit.
More details coming…sometime
5. You address the bellman as “wow thank you sir!”
Finally everything is back to normal and I’m making CD’s again in the living room.
Everyone who bought the Hermit in the past month will get The Circle sent to them as well as a treat.
I am very sorry for the inconvenience my friends.
To all you lovely folks who have purchased my album The Hermit (or any other) from my store in the past 2 weeks, I’m really sorry that your albums have not arrived yet. I’ve been away from home, currently in Sweden working with Pain of Salvation and have therefor not been able to create the CD’s (yes each and everyone is specially made from scratch for the person who buys it). However, I will be back running the one-man manifacture in a couple of days and you will have your albums before weekend.
The store is ready! just look to your left
more items will be added as soon as possible, some of the older CD’s are either sold out or buried in a storage room somewhere.
T-shirts and 24 bit wav files will also be availble in the near future 🙂
I’m currently working on setting up a store for online purchase of my albums.
The Hermit is being packaged in exclusive 50 copies only which will be available there, so far the only place where it’s being sold is Smekkleysa (bad taste records) a small record store at Laugavegur, Reykjavik, Iceland.
After 5 weeks on the road with Pain of Salvation, both driving across the states and doing festivals in Europe I’m back home with my family and working on new material.
2 albums in fact, well soon there’ll be 3 in the making as in a couple of weeks we’re starting to write the new Pain of Salvation album.
Until then, here’s a new addition to my catalog available for digital sale and streaming.
So far we’ve played in Atlanta (twice), Springfield-Maryland & New Jersey.
It’s been great doing these shows, in Atlanta we played the entire Remedy Lane album. It was only really stressful, as there were a lot of people there with high expectations and those songs are very demanding. We pulled through though and had a blast in doing so.
This morning we got left by the Denny’s Diner by our busdriver…. a little panic there for a minute especially when we got the word that the bus couldn’t turn around to pick us up.
But one of the waitresses there (Megan, the pregnant one) felt sorry for us and drove us to where the bus had parked!
Another nice tour-story to tell the grandkids, I actually need more stories like this one for them kids. Ones that do not include nakedness and too much alcohol consumption.
