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.
On the Lollapalooza tour I blogged on Aftonbladet.se but this time I thought I’d give all my non-swedish friends and fans an opportunity to follow me on tour, so my tour blog this time will be in english here on my own website.
I’ve just arrived in Canada for Canadian Music week and am exploiting the free wifi on the Fairmont to write this. The trip yesterday was about 14 hours long and we were very happy to have some pizza and get some rest on an inflatable bed at my friend Gary Taxali’s house here in Toronto when we arrived. Gary is the most talented artist, he designed the stunning coverart for Aimee Mann’s latest album and when he heard we were coming here he invited us to stay with him.

Today’s mission is to check out Toronto, pick up some lotion (I realized I was allergic to the one I brought from home) and to check out my favourite store “Forever 21”.
I love running my own record label but it also means I sometimes have to work really hard and have a bunch of things on my mind at the same time. I’m showcasing at Canadian Music Week and South By Southwest in March so I have to try to find all the ways I can to market my music and my upcoming gigs there. This means I’m signing up on all different kinds of sites, creating profiles and adding music and videos. Sitting in front of my TV this sunday night I signed up to Ourstage.com, and if you want to helt me out, you can vote for me here by clicking this image:
