Eyvindur Karlsson

Hi. My name is Eyvindur (or Eyvi for short) and I'm an Icelandic singer-songwriter, actor, director, comedian, author, translator, podcaster and all around creative person. If you want to have me on your show, come on mine, suggest a collaboration or anything along those lines, this page should have all the info you need.

Below you'll find a questionnaire for prospective guests, and my calendar for booking an appointment - keep in mind that booking a slot is not a guarantee, and that I require all guests of my podcast to fill out the questionnaire.

Before we go further, could you help me out?

I'm working on something pretty epic, and you can help me out...

Answer a short survey that will help me to help my audience (and you) with some of the biggest struggles you're having in your creative business. It only takes a minute or two, and it will pay off, I promise.

(Spoiler alert: I'm working on something pretty awesome)

Who am I?

Well, I'm an Icelandic singer-songwriter. I work in theater a lot, as a songwriter, performer, actor and director. I record and release music, and do as much live performing as possible. 

I'm a published author and very experienced translator.

I have run my own businesses for 15 years, including translation service, copywriting service, a tour company, a brewery and more.

I have battled with depression and anxiety, and come out the other side a much stronger person. Over the past few years I have been quite outspoken about mental health, especially when it comes to creative people. Creativity and mental health is something I've done podcasts on and given live talks about.

I have studied literature, theater directing and am currently working on a masters degree in marketing and international commerce.


I started the Artemist podcast to teach myself and others how to make more money and serve more people as an artist and creative person. I talk about some of the things I know, and bring on experts in the things I'm not as great at, to teach me and the listeners.

I am passionate about community

Part of what I want to do is to foster a community of creative entrepreneurs. My dream is to bring together as many creatives as I can to create a community where people with different backgrounds and different expertise can help each other out.

I have a small tour company called Follow Me, and we also have a podcast where we tell funny Icelandic stories.
