My 8th studio album “Paws of a Bear” is finally released on all digital platforms as well as in physical form on my bandcamp site. If you’re on Spotify, please make sure you hit the save button, and add some of the songs to your favorite playlists!

Here is some recent praise from the media:

Paws of a Bear … appropriately, finds Talvik taking a more Americana-flavored approach after the more fully produced and psychedelic tinged predecessor.”

“This album is a calming, timeless, ageless, innocent and beautiful masterpiece.”
Robs Raw Music

“This album is solid gold from start to finish”
Americana Highways

“Talvik’s voice is a thing of thing of singular beauty.”
Goldmine Magazine

“Paws of a Bear” is a dark, yet whimsically romantic ride that hinges on Talvik’s crisp, soothing vocals that drive listeners into her transcendent and compelling lyrics.”
Cowboys & Indians Magazine

“Beautiful soundscapes of subtle, rootsy timbres that place the pristine storyteller’s voice at their center.”

“Talvik’s latest is just another entry in her lush, beautiful brand of Americana”
If it’s too loud

Kind words from PopMatters

PopMatters premiers my song “Wrapped in Paper” with these kind words!

“The roots music that Talvik develops is of a similar tapestry to Joni Mitchell, tapping into that same knack for soul-stirring clarity and resonance. Between, however, is something of a different nature. Open-air production sets the scene for an evocative and atmospheric release from the Swedish folk artist, coming in the form of an upcoming album, Paws of a Bear.”

Big Sky Country elected best indie country song

I’m humbled to share Eclectic Pop’s list over the best songs and albums of the year with giants like Adele and Taylor Swift. My song Big Sky Country from my new album was appointed “Best indie country song”.

Here’s what they say:

“Gorgeous vocals, lyrics and instrumentation punctuate a musical love letter to the western United States in the title track of Swedish singer/songwriter Sofia Talvik’s 2015 album.”

The Telegraph appoints Big Sky Country best album of the year

U.K newspaper The Telegraph just appointed my album Big Sky Country one of the best Country/Americana albums of the year. They write:

“There is a consistency to the strong songwriting and sweet melodies throughout.”

Sofia Talvik grew up in Sweden but a 16-month tour of America has inspired much of the music on her new album Big Sky Country. Dusty Heart, Empty Hand and Big Sky Country are two of the standout tracks but there is a consistency to the strong songwriting and sweet melodies throughout. Talvik also has a fine lilting voice, which she shows off to full effect on the only cover among 11 songs, an ethereal version of Buffy Saint-Marie’s 1976 song Starwalker. ★★★☆☆
