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.
Just had to share some of these great fan reviews I’ve received for the new album. After all the real critics are the listeners:
[quote] Sofia Talvik’s mastery of the acoustic has never been more evident than in her latest album – The Owls Are Not What They Seem. Her fifth album, in which Sofia has ‘gone back to basics’ is a stunning display of her vocal prowess and lyrical talent… unpretentious, yet powerfully moving. I have had TOANWTS for only a few days now, but have listened to it probably a dozen times now… and each time is even better than the last. Thank you, Sofia! [/quote] Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw (USA)
[quote] You’ve really outdone yourself on the sound on this album Sofia. I always expect great music from you, but this has gone way past those expectations. [/quote] Allison Renee (Canada)
I had a great time in Toronto! I did 4 shows at Indieweek and played for some great crowds! My favorite show was at Free times café – a wonderful little venue. Thanks to all who came to see my shows and to Indiweek for inviting me!
Here’s a little video from my performance at Free times café.

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 happy to announce that I’m this week’s featured artist in the Microsoft campaign. My song “Burning Fields” from my new album “Jonestown” will be featured as one of ten chosen favorites, out of thousands of songs on http://www.myspace.com/windows. “Jonestown” will have a grand release in the US, Canada and Japan in October. You can download the song for free and also check out loads of other talented bands. You can also check out the song and become my fan on Reverb Nation.
