His CD Lucky to Be Me was nominated for two Grammy awards. He has an original sound and takes a contemporary and improvisational approach to jazz.

Becca Stevens began singing in her family’s band, the Tune Mammals, when she was two years old. Besides singing, she also became fluent in jazz and classical guitar, and in the folk music traditions of her native North Carolina. She sings on five songs on Eigsti's 2010 album Daylight At Midnight. She has a beautiful, ethereal voice.
