Elíza Newman and Effective Music Sign Agreement

Icelandic singer-songwriter Elíza Geirsdóttir Newman signed a record deal with record label Effective Music in the UK, as revealed this week. The agreement includes Elíza’s two first solo records.

The first album Empire Fall was released last year and received positive reviews in Britain and elsewhere. The second is scheduled for release next year.

Elíza met with representatives of Effective Music in the You Are in Control conference that was held on behalf of Iceland Music Export (IMX) in Reykjavík in October. Elíza also caught the record label’s attention while performing at the Trúbatrix Festival in Reykjavík last month.

While in London, apart from signing the agreement with Effective Music, Elíza performed an unplugged concert in Electro Acoustic Club, premiering some new songs.
