I’m Gonna Put My Name On Your Door is the solo debut album by leading Icelandic singer-songwriter Snorri Helgason.
It’s an album of soulful folk, energetic chorus-pop, somber ballads and glam-funk. These are mostly love-songs and songs that deal with the insecurities and uncertainties that plague the life of the musician. These are confessional, sincere and well-crafted songs performed with the intensity and power they deserve.

Snorri Helgason has been a leading figure in the Icelandic indie-pop scene for years through his band Sprengjuhöllin. Sprengjuhöllin released two critically and commercially acclaimed albums, topping many year-end lists, winning Snorri an Icelandic Music Award for Best Song in early 2008 and reaching platinum and gold status respectively.

When Sprengjuhöllin went on hiatus in early 2009 Snorri decided to record a solo album focusing on the folk and soul music influences at the center of his musical tastes.
Entitled I’m Gonna Put My Name On Your Door it was released in the fall of 2009 to raving reviews and critical acclaim.
