Asa Elinar interview

@AsaElinar

Ása Elínardóttir is an Icelandic 27 years old girl who sings R&B with and incredible and deep black voice  (she is the Aretha Franklin of Iceland), but she has platinum blonde hair and blue eyes

“At the age of 9 she became obsessed by Johny Cash”

She showed up on the stage with a denim jacket, leather black trousers and sexy red shoes, she´s tall and moved like a model, her band is very professional as well

I interviewed Ása Elínar after her concert in Secret Solstice 2018

She is a great singer and composer (and mother), but also runs the restaurant Reykjavik Chips, they only cook french fries, but they are delicious and have all kind of sauces

 

The interview to Ása in Secret Solstice Iceland

  • Tell me something about your background?

I always liked music, but at the age of 9 I became obsessed by Johny Cash. First I wrote poems, afterwards I started singing…

and now no one can stop her

  • What kind of music do you like?

It can sound a bit weird, but I don´t listen to much music because I think it interferes in the process of my song´s writing. I don´t want to be under the influence of some other music

  • Do you live exclusively from music?

No, we own the Restaurant Reykjavik chips (as many artists in Iceland, the little population doesn’t provide audience enough)

There are many and really good, but I would say Sjón because he is also poet, songwriter and more. Read the interview
