Teitur released Stay Under the Stars
Teitur. A one word name. From the Faroe Islands. There are almost no trees, just rocks, green pastures, beautiful views, wind and rain. Lots of rain. He is an artist whose music and lyrics remind you of what songs can do for the soul. Sappy, yes, but listen and try to argue…
Teitur’s 2003 debut album "Poetry & Aeroplanes" displayed a warm, organic sound combining his unique acoustic guitar playing and one take vocals with subtle, beautiful arrangements, winning over fans around the world as it was gradually released in over 12 countries. MTV "You Hear It First", VH1, CNN and iTunes were all early supporters of the album.

Teitur toured non-stop in support of his debut, initially playing intimate acoustic shows, slowly winning over bigger and bigger audiences as he fleshed out his live performances with a band and sometimes string quartet, playing over 350 shows around the world including more than 150 in North America. The gigs raised in size from a single radio programmer on a bus to an audience of over 50,000 at an event organized for European Royalty.
In 2005, in between writing and demoing new songs, touring throughout Europe and guesting on a couple of other artists’ albums (including a duet on Ane Brun's multi platinum Norwegian album "Duets") album, Teitur also managed to find the time to tour the US with super cool Aimee Mann this past October, a tour which he followed up this June while performing in support of the wonderful KT Tunstall.
Leaving Universal in early 2006, Teitur partnered up with his manager to found their own label (Arlo and Betty Recordings - so named after his beloved pair of vintage Gibson acoustic guitars) and elected this time to license his albums to like minded labels around the world that share his musical vision and philosophies – including newly formed Equator Music for all of North America.
To record his second album Teitur enlisted the help of London based, Swedish producer Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, A-Ha, Ron Sexsmith and new UK No.1 act James Morrison) to produce the album at Martin's retro cool Kensaltown Studios in London.
The result of the recordings is the stunning album "Stay Under The Stars", a dynamic and well crafted collection of songs reflecting Teitur's unique view on stories, situations and life as well as his newer, fuller live sound and wider outlook on the world. The album debuted in the Top 10 in his home country of Denmark and was followed by a number of high profile performances at European festivals such as Les Eurokeenes Festival in France and Benicassim in Spain where he played with a dazzling 10 piece Orchestra!
