No strangers are you to the Earth, nor is the Earth your stepmother. But a very heart of her very heart are you, and a very backbone of her very backbone. Glad is she to bear you on her sturdy, broad and steady back. Flowing with milk and honey are the udders of the Earth. Why do you let both sour with your greed by taking of them more than you need? Serene and comely is the face of the Earth. Why would you mar and ruffle it with bitter strife and fear? A perfect unit is the Earth. Why do you persist in dismembering her with swords and boundry-marks? Obedient and carefree is the Earth. Why are you so full of care and insubordination? Yet more enduring are you than the Earth, than the Sun and all the spheres in the heavens. All shall pass away, but you shall not. Why tremble you as leaves in the wind? (-The Book of Mirdad-)

Much like the squirrel in the wheel, Man who has set the wheel of Time a-turning is so enthralled by the motion that he no longer can believe himself to be the mover, nor can he ‘find the time’ to stay the whir of Time. One is the road of Life and Death upon the rim of the wheel of Time. For motion in a circle can never reach an end, nor ever spend itself. And every motion in the world is a motion in a circle. But man shall free himself of the visious circle of Time, because Man is heir to God’s holy Freedom. The wheel of time rotates, but its axis is ever at rest. God is the axis of the wheel of Time. Though all things rotate about Him in Time and Space, yet is He always timeless and spaceless and still. In the axis all is peace. On the rim all is commotion. Where would you rather be? Slip from the rim of Time into the axis and spare yourself the nausea of motion. Let Time revolve about you. (-The Book of Mirdad-)

Today I played a couple songs for about 25 Japanese people who arrived in Iceland for the local music festival that just started. They were the nicest people. A real polite bunch. You’ve got to hand it to the Japanese! They know what to do with their shoes upon entering a house 😉

A few months ago I had the pleasure of collaborating with the wonderful Lizzie Weber. Check it out when you have a moment ❤️

Wrote a new song today for a secret project I’m working on. A walk always works for me to crystallize lyrical ideas. A good days work. 🙏🏻

Dear lovely people who still like my page despite the lack of activity for so very long. I apologize for having disappeared for a while. I seem to have been very pre-occupied with off-line actives and neglecting the online world a little. I am back with some news for you. First of all my partner Mio and I have been building a studio for the past two years, which we gave the name Masterkey and officially opened on January 6th 2018. If you are curious about it, here is a website where you can check it out: It’s in beautiful Iceland where we live, and we feel truly blessed to be the guardians of such an incredible creative space. I am turning 30 this year, preparing my third solo record and we are expecting our third baby together. I have a good feeling about this year. On this note, I am sending you all love and blessings from windy and snowy Iceland. Photos by: Jonatan Gretarsson

A few nights ago I went to a Krishna Das concert here in Iceland. So lucky we were to have this wonderful man bring his music to us. What an amazing experience it was to chant these ancient chants and find stillness within even for a little bit.

One of the most amazing things Ive gotten to do in my life so far is being a part of a local choir here in Iceland, and singing this masterpiece by J.S. Bach. We have been rehearsing it for the past few months and will perform it at the stunning church of Reykjavík, Hallgrímskirkja, on the 10th and 11th of June. If you happen to be in Iceland at this time, you can not miss this! I look forward to these concerts as much as I looked forward to performing at the Oscars. The energy of this piece goes as high as the sky and higher still. Tickets are available here:

Last week I attended a premiere of a Czech movie "Miluji Te Modre" in Prague, having composed music for it. Here I am on the picture with a Czech musician Michael Foret, who also contributed to the film's score with a song. This was a lovely project for me to have worked on and I so enjoyed seeing the finished movie with my music in the cinema. Congratulations to the talented actors and the dedicated director. A special thanks to Tomas Krejci, my dear friend.

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! When I was entering my 20's, I believed I could change the world. Now that I'm nearing my 30's, all I want is to change myself. Here is to us all becoming ever better versions of ourselves, and thus changing the world together.

This is my dear friend Mary. She is an amazing thinker and doer, and hearing her talk used to only be possible while sitting at her table with cup of tea. But now, she has written a book and done this wonderful TEDx talk, and her gift to the world is thus available to all interested. Please watch if you feel so inclined. ❤️
