U.K going bananas for “Big Sky Country”

Big Sky Country Cover Art

My new album “Big Sky Country” will get a special release in the U.K early in the new year and the U.K media is already going crazy over it! Read some of the reviews here:

“Her sounds dig deep into the heart and elicit something truly awestruck and amazed.  One of the best and most intuitive songwriter on the scene; her music takes your mind to the scenes and sights she sings- it is such vivid and raw music that rewards those that love music with depth and soul.  Big Sky Country is as stunning and rich as its cover art: music that covers a wealth of topics and explores love, hope and wonderful characters.  There are few artists that have the prolific and consistency as Talvik.”

“Make home on your CD shelf for “Big Sky Country”, the latest in a collection of 6 full length albums, next to First Aid Kit recent purveyors mining similar vein with “Stay Gold” receiving measured success. Sofia’s perfected craft taking her nation’s abilities beyond pop, with open arms, be early bird to new opportunity and cradle Sofia standing on the cusp of, somewhat overdue, larger audiences.”

“Talvik has put together a spellbinding assemblage of stripped-down, acoustic anthems that keep compelling from commencement to conclusion. While the instrumentation is adept and engaging, it’s her invigorating vocals that steal the show throughout. So charming is their tone, that the record remains uplifting and optimistic, even in its most melancholy moments.

Lullaby video premiere

“Lullaby” is the second single from my new album “Big Sky Country“.  I’m stoked to have the video featured on both PopDose as well as NoDepression!

For a long time this song had no name and when when I started playing it in concerts, I would ask the audience what they thought the name should be. After getting many suggestions a lady in Hamburg, Germany came up with the name Lullaby and finally the song got its name.

The video is recorded in a 1890’s farm in southern Texas. As the ghosts of time are moving through the rooms of this historic house you get a feeling of being in a timeless state where past and present blend to the tunes of the music.

““Lullaby” is a beautiful and warm piece and the imagery fits the dreamy nature of the song.  Let yourself be lulled by the angelic vocals of Sofia Talvik and enjoy…” – PopDose

Filmed and edited by Jonas Westin. Thank you to Frank Briscoe for letting us use his beautiful house! Visit The Homeplace here!

Aftonbladet hyllar Big Sky Country

Sofia Talvik Aftonbladet

Vad är bättre än att få en bra recension? Jo, att få en hel krönika tillägnad sig. Aftonbladets Per Bjurman uppmärksammar min nya skiva Big Sky Country i sin krönika och skriver:

“Det är för att det var länge sedan jag hörde nånting helt nytt som på samma sätt fångar essensen av det jag älskar allra mest med Amerika och ständigt längtar till. (…) ”Big sky country” är det bländande resultatet. Titellåten må vara enda regelrätta reseskildringen, men den episka odyssén över kontinenten har format samtliga sånger – lätt de bästa Orusts lätt countryfierade Joni Mitchell skrivit under sin tio år långa skivkarriär.”
