What do like most about playing at SXSW?
It will be my first time, so I don´t know, but I´ve heard from people that there is good atmosphere at the festival.

Are you out promoting anything?
My first album, Við og við was released in the States in January this year. I have another upcoming release in the Spring, a new solo record that will be called Innundir skinni.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
So many bands, so little time...

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
I am yet to face them

Do you have any survival tips?
Taking naps has always been helpful to me when traveling and playing.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
If there would be a scale from 1-10 and "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" would be 1 and "play as many shows as possible then get out" would be 10. According to my schedule my experience of the festival will probably be somewhere around a 6.

Any additional comments?
Looking forward to the Tex-Mex food!
