Singsongstars: Introducing Teitur


Say hello to Teitur - he's a singer/songwriter from the Faroe Islands who I've been listening to a lot lately on MySpace.  If you're a fan of Antony & The Johnstons, Rueben Butchart, Esser, or Rufus Wainwright, you'll probably fall in love with Teitur's velvety voice and interesting and ambient sound.

Coming from the Faroe Islands has really been a true inspiration to Teitur - he explains;

“There is no getting away from the fact that the Faroe Islands have influenced me. The place is very dramatic, the weather conditions are averse, there is a lot of silence, it’s a part of me, it’s in my dreams, it is hard for me not to put some of that atmosphere into my music as I feel so attached to it.”

Take a listen to the offbeat first single "Catherine The Waitress" - released on February 2nd, to get a feel for the quirky, enveloping mood music that Teitur produces.  His album "The Singer" will be released shortly after in the UK.  

Side note: "Singsongstars" is a new category here on EQ which will highlight some of the brilliant new one-of-a-kind singer/songwriters or acts that are emerging in 2009.

If I like him *checking the Myspace now* that will mean I like two Faroe Islands bands. How peculiar. :)

*likes Catherine The Waitress lots*

Teitur has been around for quite sometime now, he opened for John Mayer after his first album was released in 2003. His latest album "The Singer" was released in the spring in some countries and is his third full cd release in English. You should definitely pickup his first album "Poetry And Aeroplanes", it is his best.
