Further Information

Ég ólst upp við dynjandi rythma hljómsveitarinnar Grafík og
S-Ameríska gítartónlist föður míns sem seinna kynnti mig fyrir listamönnum á borð við Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell og Nick Cave. Þegar ég var unglingur tók við ljóðalestur og Protools sem á endanum leiddu til fyrstu plötu minnar sem kom út árið 2003, Standing Still. Ári síðar hitaði ég upp fyrir Damien Rice á Nasa sem leiddi til enn frekara samstarfs á plötunni minni sem kom út árið 2006 og heitir Þögn. Þar gætti áhrifa frá Stinu Nordenstam, Blonde Redhead og Cardigans svo eitthvað sé nefnt. Á þriðju plötunni minni Surprise, kvað við nýjan og léttari tón. Platan sló í gegn á Íslandi og áhugi spratt að utan í kjölfarið. Við tóku fjörugar tónlistarhátíðir á borð við The Great Escape, Eurosonic, Spot Festival auk sérstakra tónleika Q Magazine í London þar sem ég hitaði upp fyrir Amy MacDonald. Fjórða platan mín, Moment, kom út árið 2012 og fengu þar dekkri hliðar að njóta sín. Við gerð plötunnar var ég undir áhrifum frá sterkum tónlistarkonum eins og PJ Harvey, Björk og Bat For Lashes en þau áhrif eru augljós í melódísku en angurværu indí-poppinu. Sumarið 2013 fór ég ásamt Mugison, Jónasi Sig, Ómari Guðjóns, Arnari Þór Gíslasyni og Guðna Finnssyni á tónleikaferð um landið á eikarbát. Úr varð ævintýri Áhafnarinnar á Húna þar sem við söfnuðum pening fyrir björgunarsveitir landsins. Síðast liðið ár hef ég verið að vinna plötu í samstarfi við Íkorna, Stefán Örn Gunnlaugsson. Platan sem er draumkennd og ævintýraleg hefur fengið titilinn Þel. Ólíkt fyrri plötum mínum þá er Þel öll samin og sungin á Íslensku.

Platan er tilbúin en þar sem að ég er að gefa plötuna út sjálf, óskar ég eftir ykkar hjálp við að klára ferlið alveg til enda. Það á eftir að framleiða og dreifa og búa til kynningarefni. Þegar þið veljið ykkur pakka hér til hægri fáið þið niðurhal af plötunni um leið, tveimum mánuðum áður en Þel kemur formlega út.

Ég mun halda útgáfutónleika
4. Júní í Reykjavík
5. Júní á Græna Hattinum, Akureyri
6. Júní á Kaffi Rauðku, Siglufirði.

Hljómsveitina mína skipa Arnar Þór Gíslason, Birkir Rafn Gíslason, Guðni Finnsson og Þorbjörn Sigurðsson.

Ef upp koma vandamál eða þú færð ekki senda plötuna innan sólahrings frá
því að þú styrkir verkefnið sendu þá póst á lararuna@gmail.com

Two Singles already out

I am born and raised in Reykjavík. I developed a love of music while growing up listening to my father playing and recording with legendary Icelandic band Grafík. Through him I was first introduced to artists such as Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell and Nick Cave. I released my first album, Standing Still in Iceland in 2003 and the following year did a collaboration with Damien Rice, both performing live and recording together. I was inspired by Stina Nordenstam, Blonde Redhead and Cardigans for my second album Þögn (Silence) in 2006 performing some of my songs on that album in Icelandic. The release of my third album Surprise in late 2009 gained a lot of radio play in Iceland and the beginnings of interest internationally. I played a special show for Q Magazine in London alongside Amy MacDonald and played showcase festivals Spot, Eurosonic and The Great Escape. My forth album Moment, released in 2012 hints at a darker and edgier indie pop. I was greatly influenced by strong female artist such as PJ Harvey, Björk and Bat for Lashes. Now I just finished my fifth album Þel (Core) all in Icelandic in collaboration with Icelandic singer/songwriter Ikorni. My self-released album will be out in late May 2015.

My album is ready but because it is a self-release I really need your help. What is left is the production, distribution and marketing. What you get in return is of caurse the package you chose here on the right, but also download of the album Þel right away, two months before its release date.

My release concerts will be in
Reykjavík 4th of June
Græni Hatturinn Akureyri 5th ofJune
Kaffi Rauðka Siglufjöður 6th of June

My band members are, alongside Lára, Arnar Þór Gíslason, Birkir Rafn Gíslason, Guðni Finnsson and Þorbjörn Sigurðsson.

If you don't get the digital download within 24hours after you donate please send me an email lararuna@gmail.com
