Description: Look out, the musician's favorite singer-songwriter is coming to a place near you with a new album. Says KT Tunstall: "He is the sound of melting ice, haunted woods, and beautiful honesty." He is Teitur (Tie-tor), a man from the Faroe Islands who turns music into magic beautifully and effortlessly. In 2002, Teitur was signed by the legendary Doug Morris to Universal Records in the US. He soon released his first album Poetry & Aeroplanes (2003), which became a critical hit with its simple, sincere songs. Teitur's popularity ballooned as he toured the US and Canada extensively, performed on American chat shows, watched as his songs got snapped up for film soundtracks, and garnered the attention of respected singer-songwriters like Rufus Wainwright, Aimee Mann, KT Tunstall, Ron Sexsmith, and John Mayer, all of whom took him on tour.
