SoundCloud Part III of the SoundCloud Sessions with Myrra Rós

As a continuation of showcasing the talented musicians and bands on SoundCloud, we brought in Myrra Rós for the third part of our SoundCloud Sessions!

While Myrra was touring Denmark and Germany, she was nice enough to stop by the SoundCloud headquarters and play an acoustic set in our back stairwell. The Icelandic singer-songwriter performed solo on the tracks, “Kveldúlfur” and “Við og við (tvö)”. While for “Sail On”, Jonas Dahl helped out with backing vocals.

You can hear all the tracks she performed below! Also, if you visit her SoundCloud page, you can listen to – and download – more of her wonderful music!

To check out the full session with live videos, head on over to the SoundCloud Sessions tumblr.

SoundCloud sessions are recorded in both audio and video format, and will be added to the SoundCloud Sessions tumblr. To keep yourself updated on our sessions, feel free to follow us on Twitter, Tumblr and/or subscribe to this WordPress blog!
