Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
I’ve been performig all the songs from my latest album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem” live from different places in the US during my Drivin’ & Dreaming Tour and published them on YouTube.
This is the twelvth and final track from the album – Nothing Quite So Gentle, performed in the Palm Cemetary in Winter Park, Orlando, Florida. To record a video in a cemetary might seem like a werd idea, but I’ve always loved the eerie look of the spanish moss hanging off the trees and the old tomb stones, and the first line in the song is “If you’re one step from the grave…”.
This is probably the TOANWTS Acoustic video album version that is the most different from the album version since I originally wrote the song on the piano and had to re-interpret it for the guitar. Kinda like a cover of myself. With this song the Acoustic video album is now complete. I’ve recorded the 12 original songs in almost as many states during my 2011-2013 tour and I hope you enjoyed the scenery as well as the acoustic versions.
It’s been such and adventure being on the Drivin’ & Dreaming tour. We’ve been to 37 states, played over 250 shows and have met so many wonderful people. But it’s time for Europe to get some Sofia Talvik too and this spring the Drivin’ & Dreaming tour will be moving across the pond to the old country.
I have one more Florida show before we leave so don’t miss out on getting tickets, as seating is limited. It will be a night of music and stories from the road at the Civic Media Center in Gainesville, presented by Shake Rag Cultural Center, on March 1st 8pm. Tickets are only $10 and you can get yours HERE! I’ll see you there!
So I got an email from Georgia who told me that she and her fellow students at the Birmingham Institute of Art and design had made a video for my song “Delusional” from the EP “V – Part Three of L.O.V.E“. Of course I had to share it and here it is!

My Drivin’ & Dreaming tour is nearing its end but President Obama wouldn’t have it that I didn’t have any more shows in Washington, DC 😉 so I had to schedule a show at the House of Sweden on February 24th (I didn’t want to be responsible for the US invading Sweden after all). So if you’re up around DC you better get your tickets to my show NOW! See you on the 24th! The show is at 6pm and you can find the address here!
