Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson is an Icelandic singer-songwriter and musician. In his Icelandic releases, he was credited as Ásgeir Trausti. But more recently in 2013 with his launching as an international artist, he has started using the mononym Ásgeir as a recording name.

Ásgeir performs with his own band, Ásgeir Trausti Band. He also plays guitar in the Icelandic band The Lovely Lion.Ásgeir’s debut album Dýrð í dauðaþögn was released in 2012. The lead single, “Sumargestur”, made it to number two on the Tónlist, an unofficial but widely quoted Icelandic Singles Chart, followed by the single “Leyndarmál” (six weeks at number 1 on Tónlist) and the title track “Dýrð í dauðaþögn” from the album (three weeks at #1 on Tónlist).

He has had a Christmas hit with his song “Hvítir skór” in collaboration with Blaz Roca. The single stayed at the top of the Icelandic Singles Chart for 9 consecutive weeks from December 2012 to the end of January 2013. An English language version of Dýrð í dauðaþögn under the title In the Silence had been scheduled for international release on 27 January 2014, but was made available online on iTunes on 28 October 2013.

The American singer John Grant helped with the translation of the lyrics and re-production of the English language album. Based on online sales, the album has already charted in Belgium and Netherlands.On 13 August 2013, Ásgeir released the video for “King and Cross”, the debut single from the prospective album with John Grant appearing in the single release. The follow-up single “Going Home” charted in France. The main release to coincide with the release of the album was “Torrent”, an English-language version of “Nýfallið regn”.

HEBE

A trio of increasingly accomplished EP’s released between 2015 and 2020 have seen HEBE fluently adventuring new styles and reaching listeners around the globe. Her intimate live performance of ‘Cards On The Table’ for UK Mahogany Sessions in 2020, next to the likes of Rhye, Birdy and Billie Eilish as well as the placement of latest single ‘Afraid of Being Hurt’ in US Series ‘Couples Therapy’ as theme song for their final episode, show the international approval of her music. Her organic and guitar layered new Album 'Release Resolution', where deep and heavy vocal harmonies underline her lyrics, is to be released November 11th. HEBE's empowering songs and glowing, warm voice manage to seamlessly intertwine a message of melancholy and hopefulness, without getting overly earnest or sounding too pure or confident. Her Album opens with ‘Wait For Daylight’, a song about the night and the start of an anxious, dark phase. The Album ends with Lifted The Weight, a song that was written in the early mornings in her home in Amsterdam where she often found inspiration after lying awake for several hours which at times gave her a feeling of power and self sustainability.
