At just 18 years old, Mani Orrason has already released his first album, Repeating Patterns, back in April of 2015. More recently, he released an EP entitled Wake Me Up, which includes four new songs. His influences include Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, and Neil Young. Orrason’s music is folk, which matches perfectly with his gravelly vocals. His first single, “Fed All My Days” was released in Iceland in the fall of 2014, and shot straight to the top of the National radio chart. The video for the single was nominated as Music Video of the Year at the Icelandic Music Awards, as well as being nominated for Newcomer of the Year in 2015. His freshman album, Repeating Patterns debuted at Number 3 in Iceland.
