Iceland Flyaway Spotlight: Sóley

photo by Keiko Kurita

Iceland breeds some unique vocalists. One of our favorites, who we discovered a few years ago at Icelandic Airwaves Festival is Sóley, a former member of Seabear who has become an acclaimed songwriter on her own. We know we’re not the only ones to fall in love with her, as Sóley’s performance of “I’ll Drown”, which we recorded back in 2011, has gained nearly two million YouTube views! We look forward to new music from Sóley sometime this year, just as we look for more unique songwriters like her at Airwaves to come.

KEXP and Iceland Air want you to discover artists like Sóley for yourself. We’re sending one lucky winner and a guest to Iceland Airwaves 2014. Time is running up, so find out more about our Iceland Airwaves Flyaway Extravaganza and enter to win now!

Then, watch the last three times we’ve recorded Sóley at Iceland Airwaves, including her very popular performance of “I’ll Drown” and an as yet unreleased song that we recorded last year:
