As part of the small group of musicians around the record label Bedroom Community, Helgi continues to work as a singer and trombonist with producer Valgeir Sigurðsson, composer Nico Muhly, Ben Frost, Sam Amidon and Daníel Bjarnason. In 2010 the group toured Europe under the name “Whale Watching Tour,” performing at prestigious venues such as the Barbican Center in London.

Helgi has released three EP's: Aska (2008), Kví, kví (2009) and Blindfolded (2010). He has recorded and performed with artists such as Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Ane Brun, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Amiina, Funkstörung, Dzihan & Kamien, Tom Jones, Múm, Philipp Poisel and many others.

Helgi's eclectic new solo album ”Big Spring” is now out: 12 tracks dynamic and playful like never before, jumping from intimate moments of Helgi with his acoustic guitar, to atmospheric falsetto voices over a grand piano, to deep menacing trombones, to walls of electric guitars, to colorful and complex arrangements drawing on his classical background. The first single is “Darkest Part Of Town”. The album contains the duet “Careful People” written and performed with Tina Dico.
