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.
We had a little competition on the night of the release party where all you fans could take a picture of the gig, post it on Facebook and compete for a Sofia Talvik Florida tote. We had so many great contributions that it was really hard to choose a winner.
But by capturing the happiness and and ambiance of the gig and by proving that you do not need a professional camera to take a great picture Therese Göterheim made us look twice at this lovely picture.
I have an exciting fall ahead of me. My album Jonestown is being released in the US, Canada and Japan at the end of October and I have a lot of fun gigs coming up both in Sweden and in the US. The good thing is that a lot of these gigs are free and you should definitely swing by if you’re in the neighbourhood. Here’s what’s coming up:
Stockholm, Sweden: September 22nd: Musslan, Dalagatan 46 No admission
I’m currently trying to connect all of my social media sites to update and talk to each others. A bit confusing but it’s working pretty decent. My website is run from wordpress and i got plugins that will publish updates of my posts to twitter.com, ping.fm. My RSS feed is feeding feedburner.com with all the news and my facebook and myspace pages are picking it up and publishing it on my pages there.
If anyone got any other smooth solutions to integrating stuff more, feel free to contact me. You’ll find me online on these links. 🙂
Yet another post today. I’m keeping busy!
Sometimes I get fan mail and I try to answer them all, unless they’re really weird or really dirty. A while back I got a fan mail from a girl called Jenny. I laughed all day because of her email, because she requested a picture of me, but she wouldn’t settle for the usual press photo – she wanted a pic of me with an pet. I’m a big fan of Erik Eriksson’s book “Brev till samhället” which basically is Erik sending all sorts of weird letters to different companies, banks, gouverments etc, demanding all sorts of strange stuff and then publish their answers. I kind of felt this could be such an email, but then again, you never know so of course I answered her email as best I could.
But it did turn out to be a prank, or rather a study in how many celebs who actually answer their fans email. You can read the story (and the email and my answer) here:
