Son of Fortune hails from the Faroe Islands, a small group of islands located in the north Atlantic Ocean.
The rawness in the weather and the breathtaking scenery on the islands shine through in Son of Fortune's songwriting and the way he plays his beat up old Stratocaster. From raw Rock n' Roll to dark folky landscapes, the music challenges you, but at the same time you feel at home.
As a sideman Son of Fortune has played with Faroese artist like Teitur and Eivør, but he has also played with living legends like Kris Kristofferson and Larry Gatlin.

“Sounds that are somewhere between silence and storm,
rainy dusk and magic midnight sun”
Nothing But Hope and Passion
Won four Faroese Music Awards in 2015 for the album
