Lay Low

blues // folk

Singer-songwriter Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir, a.k.a. Lay Low, has been named as one of the most promising new artists back in her home country Iceland. On her album Farewell Good Night’s Sleep (2009) Lay Low captures the essence of blues, country and folk, concocting them all into music that feels like a perfect soundtrack for a cross country road trip. One of the album’s highlights, “Last Time Around”, unfolds sweetly with her soft crooning, melancholic bluesy sound and a hint of Iceland and Nashville in it.

Country-tinged Icelandic love song.

    Lovely. I’m always impressed by world artists that manage to play in the American idiom better than Americans.

    This is a great song, and she has a sweet voice. I have been enjoying Lay Low’s music since March, 2010, when I heard her being interviewed on NPR. She sang “Little By Little”, with an accompaniment, and it sounded great; each version I have since heard is always great in its own way.
