This Iceland native, now Charlotte resident, quickly rooted himself into the indie-soul music scene soon after his migration to the Queen City years ago. His tenor voice and gripping lyricism has an almost magical effect on his audience.
After his first solo project, Jet is flying high with his upcoming sophomore release, an EP scheduled for a mid-summer 2016 release. According to Jet, “The Great Escape” is a project centered around the concept of self-realization. The first single from the EP, “Up All Night” is a summertime feel good record. The song encourages people to just be free and simply dance the night away. Jet’s style goes beyond traditional pop, R&B and dance music. His sound can be explained as his own toe-tapping blend of “electro soul.”
