Mini Documentary about Center of the Universe

I was so lucky to be able to fulfill my vision when making my new album Center of the Universe. I really wanted the process to be as organic and natural as possible, to be far away from distractions, and to let the songs come to life through the sound and heartbeat of all musicians in one room at the same time.

We captured some of the time we spent in the studio and turned it into a mini documentary with commentary on my thoughts, the production and the backstory behind some of the songs. As the album has gained so many wonderful reviews, been considered for a Grammy Nomination in the category Best Folk Album, and has been hanging on to Folk Radio Charts USA all Fall of 2023, I now think it’s time to release the mini documentary to the world. Come with us into the studio in Sulegång.

“The fact is, this is an album so captivating and compelling each offering begs repeated listens in order to fully appreciate their celestial sounds. A masterwork flush with both ambition and intrigue, Center of the Universe could be considered a musical marvel.”

European release April 14th

Big Sky Country Cover Art


Because Europe is always one step ahead with the hip and cool 😉 we are also releasing Big Sky Country a little bit earlier than in the U.S and Canada. From today, April 14th you can order signed copies of the CD in my shop (click here). If you are waiting for the U.S release you’ll have to wait two more weeks until April 28th, and then the CD as well as downloads will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and select stores.

Vinyls are being pressed as I write this and will be available from late May. This is due to the long production time for making vinyl.

If you want to pick up a t-shirt, sticker, tote bag or coffee mug you can head over to my collection of Big Sky Country prints here!

In the studio – Day 1


My guitar player Marcus Högquist came down to Berlin from Stockholm the other day and we’ve been in the Mahoni studio to record some guitar. Here’s a glimpse from the recording and some of my new songs. I’m not doing a Kickstarter or other crowdfunding project for the album, but if you feel like you want to support indie music there is another way of doing this. Read more about my new donation system here! Or watch the two minute video by clicking here!  And if you want to help out with the making of the new album feel free to click the donate button at the top of this post.

A huge thanks to Mathis for all the help with recording and for inviting us into his studio! Visit his website here.

New album out soon!

I’m so happy to announce that I will be releasing an extended EP in March! Pre-orders are up now!

Folk by Sofia Talvik
Folk by Sofia Talvik

In Swedish ”folk music” means ”traditional music”. If you play ”folk” in Sweden, you are most likely a whiz at the key-harp or the violin. For many years I’ve been a part of the folk scene, in the non traditional sense, and finally I thought I’d try to combine the two in a new way. 

These are 6 old traditional Swedish folk songs in a more modern clothing. Bringing in musicians from Germany as well as Sweden, mixing it up with my own sound and my own visions, I combined the beauty of the old with the beauty of the new. The result is this extended EP – ”Folk”. 

The name rings true in both Swedish and English, stating the new and the traditional genre but also brings in the meaning of the Swedish word which is ”people”. This is an album for the people. I hope you like it!
