Ólafur Arnalds Plays Live on Echoes,

Ólafur Arnalds has been a favorite on Echoes since his second album, And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness.  He played a live Echoes session when that album came out and another one when he released his 3rd recording, For Now I Am Winter. Today, he comes in to play music from his fourth and latest album, re:member.  That was an Echoes CD of the Month in September of 2018 and he was in the Top 5 of The Best of Echoes 2018. We traveled literally through rain, sleet, snow and jack-knifed tractor trailer to record Ólafur on-stage at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, where Ólafur would be playing live only a half hour later. He sat in a cockpit of synthesizers, surrounded by his string quartet and two upright pianos that had no musicians sitting at them but they would be playing as well. Find out on Echoes.
