Want to know who is coming up in the next few weeks? Did you miss an episode? Have no fear! Take a look at our Live Lunch archives and upcoming schedule.

Born Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson in the diminutive hamlet of Laugarbakki, the Icelandic singer/songwriter specializes in soulful and intimate, electronic-tinged indie folk songs. At 21, Ásgeir released his 2012 debut album, Dyrd í Dauðathognand, and quickly broke every regional record in the book (it’s estimated that almost 10 percent of the Icelandic population owns the album). His unique songs are made all the more idiosyncratic by the fact that his 72-year-old father provides the majority of the lyrics.
