Teitur Lassen is a singer/songwriter from the Faroe Islands who resides in the U.K. Teitur (pronounced "tie-tor") originally left the Faroe Islands for Copenhagen when he was 17 after fronting a pop/rock band.
He set upon writing music full-time and eventually caught the attention of former BMI executive Christian Ulf-Hansen, who became his manager. Universal released his first album, Poetry & Aeroplanes, in 2003, while Teitur found himself opening for Suzanne Vega, Glen Phillips, Aimee Mann, and John Mayer as well as playing over 300 shows through the following year. In April 2006, Teitur parted ways with Universal due to months of legal problems and creative differences. His second album, Stay Under the Stars, was released in May 2006 in Scandinavia on Playground Music and produced by Martin Terefe (a-ha, Ron Sexsmith), with The Singer following two years later. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi
