Nettwerk Music Group has signed Icelandic singer/songwriter Lay Low and will release her North American debut, "Farewell Good Night's Sleep," on May 26, Billboard can exclusively reveal. The set was produced by Liam Wason (White Stripes, Holly Golightly) and draws on influences from blues, country and folk music.
Lay Low is scheduled a quartet of live dates at the end of March in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, opening for fellow Icelander Emiliana Torrini for three of the gigs.
"I'm comfortable with English and the couple of times I toured in America, in L.A. and New York, I've felt great," she told Billboard.com.
Lay Low, aka Lovisa Elisabet Sigrunardottir, was a Billboard Underground artist last year and has previously released one album, "Please Don't Hate Me," in her native country. Her track "Mojo Love" was featured on an episode of "Grey's Anatomy."
