A Day In The Life: Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir

Published November 16, 2011

What’s up, Lovísa?
I just released a new album, ‘Brostinn strengur’, which I have been working on most of this year. These days I’m planning concerts around Iceland, practicing my management skills and trying to organise things well so that everything goes smoothly. There is a big release concert on November 18 at Fríkirkjan; I’m very excited for that.

EARLY MORNING – 
I wake up and have my bowl of cereal and AB mjólk, followed by coffee. Then I spend some time on the computer, answering emails and things like that before I head out to do whatever it is I have to do. An early morning swim is the best; I typically go to Sundhöllin or Vesturbæjarlaug, but I have to admit that I haven’t been for while. I need to work on that.

LUNCH –
I live downtown, so it is very easy to go out for a nice lunch out. I love noodle soup C at Núðluskálin, especially on a cold winter day. But usually I try to eat at home because every penny counts and it is also nice to have some cheese and toast with a hot cup of tea.

MID-DAY –
I usually work at home; I have a very cosy little office with a small studio set up. I can stay indoors for a few days at a time without boring myself. But some days I’m out and about attending meetings or setting up for a gig.

AFTERNOON –
These days I’ve been practicing a lot with my band, Lay Low, for our upcoming concerts around Iceland, and I’ve also been practicing with Benny Crespo’s Gang, trying to finish our second album. Afternoons and evenings are usually spent practicing for concerts or playing concerts. Lucky me!

HEAT OF THE NIGHT –
I like to sleep at night, but on weekends or after gigs I’m sometimes up until the late… I am very easily convinced to stay up late with beer and good friends.
