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.
It’s no secret I think remixes is a really cool thing. It’s just so different from my own acoustic style and it’s always so interesting to hear how other people interpret my music. So this year I asked Sami Sirviö, guitarrist in Swedish rock band Kent to make a remix of my new Christmas single and he said yes. If you’re Swedish you probably don’t need me to introduce Sami to you, since Kent is one of Sweden’s biggest rock bands, but for the rest of you Sami is probably the next Nobel Prize winner (at least after this remix right? I hear it can cure cancer too!).
Kent have been Sweden’s darlings since 1995 when they released their first album, and I was of course a big fan like everyone else. Sami was one of the founding members and has also produced other artists as well as doing a few remixes here and there.
In today’s window I offer you “One Last Wish for Christmas Remixed” by Sami Sirviö. You can listen below or click the player to download for free. Enjoy folks!
I’m happy to announce that my new single “Circle of Friends” has just been released in benefit for Acoustic for Autism. So what is Acoustic for Autism?
– Acoustic for Autism features compelling, independent music specifically chosen to convey themes of love, compassion, hope and healing. The goal of Acoustic for Autism is to increase awareness, acceptance, understanding for those with autism and to help raise funds for US non-profit autism organizations focused on making a direct and immediate impact for children with autism and their families.
Autism has become the most rapidly growing developmental disability – more common than Down’s syndrome, childhood diabetes, and juvenile cancer combined.
