Junius Meyvant was born on the Westman Islands off the south coast of Iceland. As a young boy he was an eccentric to a small degree and he only loved two things; skateboarding and painting. Every now and then he asked the Muses if he should learn to play an instrument but his wild and free behavior terminated his dreams as he was quickly suspended out of music school. All through his teens he rambled on without even considering becoming a musician or even playing an instrument. But in his early twenties he stumbled upon a beat up guitar at his parents' house and started noodling around. By playing the guitar he managed to tame his inner beast and his sense for songs and melodies burst like rockets. 2014 saw the release and success of his debut single, "Color Decay". The single caused quite a stir in his homeland, peaking at #1 on National Radio 2 for a few weeks and caught the ears of KEXP's Programming Director Kevin Cole who picked it as the song of the year. In 2015 Junius' finally released his first physical release, a self-titled and praised EP. Denmark's premier music magazine Gaffa said: "generously melodic material and extraordinary soulful and pleasant listening". His sound is a rich and afflicted take on freaky folk pop with a familiar and soulful feel. Junius was the star of the Iceland Music Awards (I.M.A.) in the year 2015 as he won the award for the Best Song and as the Best Newcomer. In 2016 he received two nominations at the I.M.A., for best male singer and best song.
