Born in 1972, Karl started making drums of everything as soon as he could pick up a knitting stick. Soon his parents gave him his own small guitar and he started writing music. At the tender age of eight he was studying in the Yamaha Organ School and at 16 he found himself embracing the jazz piano. These days he writes music, produces albums, plays live with bands, arranges for larger bands and works as a music director and a performer in theaters. He has written film scores and is MD at Improv Iceland. His songs have been performed by many of Iceland’s most beloved singers and are no strangers to Top 40. He plays regularly with his piano trio Hot Eskimos, his organ trio Karl Orgeltrio and Kalli Olgeirs’ Jazzdevils.
