KT Tunstall says: “He is the sound of melting ice, haunted woods and beautiful honesty” He is Teitur (Tie-tor), a man from the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic. In 2003, Teitur released his first album, Poetry & Aeroplanes. Its simple, sincere songs made it a critical hit and he toured the USA and Canada extensively and attracted the attention of respected singer-songwriters like Rufus Wainwright, Aimee Mann, KT Tunstall and John Mayer, all of whom took him on tour. In 2006, he released his second album Stay Under The Stars, a record full of richer writing and bolder characters, which went Gold in Denmark, two Danish Grammies followed. By 2008, he had completed 700 gigs in 20 countries in 4 years, which earned him the reputation of one of the hardest working artists on the road. For the third album, The Singer, released in 2008 in Europe and early 2009 in the UK, he garnered five star reviews in The Guardian ("deep, viscous stuff that is never less than extraordinary") and The Independent ("a rare beast"), while the Sunday Times praised the singer-songwriter's " wonderfully idiosyncratic talent". Teitur continued his career development in many ways, producing and writing for a range of artists, such as Nolwenn. In September 2012Teitur released his first 4 track EP, entitled Four Songs, his first solo recordings, and supported it with a world tour from September to January.
