"The airy gossamer arrangements (and) dreamy vocals evoke the reveries of a romantic troubadour musing out loud as he travels the world.” – The New York Times

“If voices could glow, his would be shimmering somewhere between the stars in his eyes and the cold ground.” – The Boston Globe

"The early promise (is realized) in this sublimely uplifting collection of songs.” - Music Week

Teitur (tie'tor) is a singular name for a singular man. Hailing from the Faroe Islands, Teitur is an artist whose songs remind you what music can do for the soul. Teitur first came to the attention of the world with the release of his 2003 debut album Poetry & Aeroplanes, which won him rave reviews.

Thousands of fans who were captivated by his 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. Initially playing intimate acoustic shows, he slowly won over bigger and bigger audiences, fleshing out his live performances with a band and sometimes string quartet. Extensive touring included support slots for celebrity fans including Rufus Wainwright, Aimee Mann and John Mayer. “(Poetry and Aeroplanes) may be one of the best albums to come along in the last five years. Music like this is jet fuel on the fire of a broken heart.” (John Mayer, Esquire Magazine.)
