suggestioni musicali a cura di raffaello russo
First single from the upcoming album “Vittu til”.
Snorri Helgason has a penchant for jumping, for letting go and moving on and embracing what’s next, for Kierkegaardian, gravity-defying leaps-of-faith.
A look at Snorri’s remarkable career reveals that the 29-year old singer-songwriter not only possesses a talent for precisely timed jumps, leaps and bounds; he has also thoroughly mastered the art of landing on his feet. His ongoing ventures continually bring him a few steps further along his quest—forever seeking that perfect harmony, an unbridled expression of humanity through a combination of words and music that would resonate through untold hearts and, ultimately, through the ages.
Snorri Helgason’s music is heartfelt and introspective, yet universal, a highly relatable exploration of his personal struggles and emotions. An avid student of pop history, Snorri keeps a firm foot in the past and a clear eye on the future, bringing forth a constant stream of timeless folk-tinged melodies and carefully constructed songs that are very much of the time.
Since taking that first consequential leap at age nineteen, when he stormed out from his job as a record store clerk determined to dedicate his life to music, Snorri has managed feats and received accolades that few musicians could ever hope for. This includes (but is not limited to) penning several chart-topping hits, leading a band to multi-platinum sales and world tours and collaborating with some of Iceland’s best-regarded musicians, celebrated artists such as Valgeir Sigurðsson, Sindri Már ‘Sin Fang’ Sigfússon and Sóley.
