Teitur Lassen, from Hoyvík, Faroe Islands, first came to the attention of the world with the release of his 2003 debut album Poetry & Aeroplanes, which won him rave reviews. He concentrates on creating inspiring melodies and gentle but finely observed, often wry and quirkily observant lyrics. Since the release of his debut album, he has toured non-stop. In 2006, in between performing at many major European festivals, Teitur started to record his second album. Read more about Teitur on Last.fm.
