GoFundMe for getting Lil’Chief roadworthy

Can you believe it’s been two years since covid disrupted the world, including my then US tour? I parked my tour RV Lil’Chief and jumped on a plane back to Europe to wait out a few months of pandemic, ready to return for my Fall tour in August 2020 … or so I thought. A few months turned into half a year, which turned into a year, a year and a half, and now we’re here, ready to pick up where we left it. But things are far from what they were before the pandemic. Venues and concert series have folded, leaving me with less than a fully stacked tour. And of course Lil’Chief has been sitting idle for 2 years.

All this adds up to a lot of extra costs, and because of this we have decided to put up a GoFundMe to help lessen the financial burden. Please check out the fundraiser here! And if you can’t help with a dollar or two, please help me share the fundraiser on your social media.

Thank you so much! Hope to see you on the road!

US Spring tour and SxSW

Waaah! Is it happening? I think it is. It sure looks like it is. So we’re picking up the 2020 tour and getting back on the road in the USA between March and May 2022. And yes! SxSW invited me back as an official artist. Keep your fingers that it won’t get canceled again.

I have a bunch of concerts booked in FL, AL, MS, TX, TN, NC, GA and SC! Head over to https://sofiatalvik.com/gigs to see where. I will be adding shows as we go along. If you want me to come to your town to play, or want to host me for a house concert, send me a message and I’ll try to make it happen!

See you on the road!

The Winter Tour bites the dust

Dear friends. It’s with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that all my Winter Concerts have been canceled. With the rising covid numbers, Delta and Omicrom, as well as new strict regulations for venues, we have decided to stay home in December and snuggle up with some hot Glühwein instead. Until we can get this virus under control everything will keep repeating like this, so if you haven’t already gotten your jab – please do so.

On a brighter note you can still order my Christmas album When Winter Comes as a nice package with hand made wax seal, gift bag and Christmas card, or download my new Christmas single A Memory of Snow for free or pay what you want. As a special treat I have decided to give you a 15% discount on everything in my store throughout December. Just add the code “winter” at checkout.

I wish you all a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!

Show cancellations

Dear friends and fans in Germany and Netherlands. My upcoming shows this weekend in Köln, Bad Bentheim and Ossenisse have been canceled due to the rising covid numbers. The 4 first Christmas concerts in Germany have also been postponed due to the rising numbers and new lockdowns. We are still hoping to be able to go through with the coming concerts in mid December, but things change every day, and we just have to wait and see. After all staying safe is more important than taking unnecessary risks right now. We are doing our best to reschedule the canceled shows and hope to see you all well and covid free next year.

We are planning a re-run of last year’s online Christmas concert and I hope that you can get some of that Christmas spirit back with my new single “A Memory of Snow”. Download it for free here: https://music.sofiatalvik.com/track/a-memory-of-snow

A Memory of Snow

It’s that time of year again… when I am releasing another free Christmas single!

The new single is called “A Memory of Snow“, and if you have followed me for a while, you will be surprised that it’s not my normal “dark themed” Christmas song about someone dying or kids getting robbed of their dreams at Christmas. Instead it’s a rather soothing tale of lost love and memories of a snow covered Copenhagen, a story that is told in both English and Swedish. Though not entirely auto autobiographical, I did spend the winter of 1998 in Copenhagen studying art at a local college. It was indeed a snowy winter, though the rest can have been anyone’s story. 

I’m very excited to have some guest performers on the single too, Tom Marsh (Those Goddamn Hippies, UK) is joining on backing vocals and glittering piano, and U.S Americana artist Rachel Van Plating on violin. 

The single is released today on my birthday November 24th, and couldn’t wish for a better gift than for you to add it to one of your Spotify playlists, or download it from my Bandcamp page.

As you might know Germany is going into a 4th wave of Covid, with new restrictions and lockdowns. 4 of my planned Christmas concerts in December have already been canceled, but at least I can extend some Winter cheer to you with this song!

Stay safe and have a beautiful Holiday season! /Sofia
