Jonsi

After spending 16 years as the singer/guitarist in the Icelandic group Sigur Rós, Jon Thor Birgisson renamed himself Jónsi and began a solo career. Though he had used the name before on a project with Alex Somers (as Jónsi & Alex on 2009’s album Riceboy Sleeps), the pixie-voiced singer’s first solo album under the Jónsi name was Go, which was released on longtime label XL in the spring of 2010. Featuring more upbeat and poppy songs than those he had written and sung with Sigur Rós, Jónsi was joined on the album by Somers, modern composer/arranger Nico Muhly, and Samuli Kosminen. Shortly after the release of the album, Jónsi began a world-wide tour that lasted the rest of the year. The album sold a fair amount of copies and his profile was boosted by the appearance of a newly recorded track, "Sticks and Stones," for the soundtrack of the hit children's movie How to Train Your Dragon. In November of 2010, Jónsi released Go Live, a CD/DVD set that included live recordings taken during the European leg of the tour on the CD and live footage of dress rehearsals shot before the tour kicked off. Jónsi's song on the Dragon soundtrack led to his working with Cameron Crowe on the soundtrack to the director's 2011 film We Bought a Zoo. ~ Tim Sendra, Rovi

Better than sigur ros. ...I love jonsi soooooooooo much!
why not?
His solo work is way better than sigor ros in my opinion. Antonytnastr a l l a I would say alternative or art rock, with some use of cinematic orchestratio n .

So proud and moved to discover that he is a relative - a cousin of sorts of my Afi Stefan Sigurdson. Etheral and evocative music.
I love his music ! What Genre would Jonsi fall under ?
Sigur Ros's music transcends time and space. Jonsi's voice is hauntingly beautiful. SOOOOO glad they're touring in the Southeast this fall .

He's my hero, if he didn't do we bought a Zoo I wouldn't be saying this and animals are my hero too.
He's one of those singers that actually sounds good live, without a robot singing for them
Love what you did with "We Bought a Zoo." So inspirationa l .
fcantoriano
Congrats! That is awesome! My boyfriend and I went to the S.F Outside Lands to see Sigur Ros, they are flawlessly incredible.
@fcantoriano I'm getting married in 2013 and my fiancee and bridal party are coming down the aisle to Sigur Ros' Staralfur. So, yeah, I think that's a great idea :)
fcantoriano
If I ever get married, I will for sure have Jonsi and Sigur Ros music. Even though I don't understand what is being said, I still love it, its beautiful music.
All I can say is... WOW.
torigirl272, I agree. I'm addicted to his song Sinking Friendships and this is equally breathtaking . Saw the movie, and just beautiful. Wonderful job Jonsi. Encore!
I just feel so happy when I listen to Jonsi. His music captures the essence of human emotion.
This is the right Bio :)
One of my absolute favorite chill out musicians..
beauty. all beauty.
qbobdole
I agree with jaabahutt. Jonsi is awesome!!!!
yes!!!! so amazing.
Wrong bio :(
And How To Train Your Dragon is an AMAZING movie!
Not just for children, I really recommend it.
Bio listed is for the wrong Jonsi. How do you not catch something like that, Pandora staff?
i love jonsi because his music somehow reminds me of being in the mountians--m y favorite place! its awesome!
Wow you confused a sub-par pop star with the Amazing Jonsi!?! WTF? Please correct this.
hilaroux
This bio is wrong, you're describing a different artist named Jonsi.
I find this artist amazing. A friend from Iceland turned me onto this singer, and i couldn't wait to add him to my repertoire.. . T h a n x , Augusto!!
skbauman16
just fyi, this autobiograph y is incorrect. this jonsi is also the lead sing of sigur ros and is a different person than the one described above...
hpfanatic1
I found out about Jonsi three weeks after he came to Salt Lake...I was kinda sad because his music is so... Indescribabl e . I want to see him live, but love his music its my new favorite to everything.

I saw him in Atlanta on Halloween... it was completely amazing. If he comes anywhere near the south again, I'll be there. If you're a fan, you have to go see him!

I was also at the Austin show. Truly amazing stuff. The performance, the staging, the visuals. Really great.
Wow.. saw his concert in Austin TX and I wish I could go again....Wor d s don't do justice to what Jonsi has done with this show.
If you ever have the chance to see him live... DO NOT pass it up. I just saw him at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans. One of the most amazing live shows
I just found this artist, such a beautiful voice and arrangements .
I'm interested in hearing more.
so beautiful. i happened to sumble across a video with the song kolnidur as the background and fell in love. after a lot of research i found out it was jonsi and i have been listening to his album go over and over. every song is so beautiful and powerful. truly, there is noone quite like him. beautiful, beautiful music.
I was an instant fan when I heard "Boy Lilikoi" on the Craig Ferguson show.
Absolutely no one else on earth sounds like him. Just wonderful.
I LOVE THIS ARTIST!!!!!
