Top Ten Alternative/Folk Bands from Iceland

Here’s what happened this week on YouTube:

I take requests for covers on my channel! This week, I picked Brendon’s ask for an acoustic version of My Hero by Foo Fighters (based loosely on the live version).

I also did my very first Top Ten video, and it was…a bit specific. Enjoy!
(Here’s the spotify playlist that goes with this video!)

Iceland is a tiny country population-wise, but there is a LOT of incredible music coming out of there! So, I wanted to celebrate and share some of my faves. 🙌🏼
