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.
This is the Ohio episode of Drivin’ & Dreaming. We check out the Zombies in Canton and visit some folk radio shows (read more and listen to them here). The RV breaks down again and my fans come to the rescue! A big big thank you to all who chipped in and helped us get back on the road!
I’ve released 9 episodes so far and the next one will be the last of the show. Stay tuned for the season finale!
You can see pictures from all my shows on my Facebook page here!

Tune into Chicago radio show “Noteworthy” on UIC radio (The official Illinois University radio) tomorrow Monday July 23rd at 5:30pm. I’ll be chatting about the tour and might even play at tune or two. You can listen through their website.
After the show, make sure you get on the bus to the Elbo Room where I’ll be performing at 10pm. Chicago based cellist Ian Maksin will be doing a set at 9pm so don’t miss that! We’ll also play a few tunes together! I can’t wait!
Due to heavy traffic and a car accident on the way out from Cambridge, MA today, I wasn’t able to make it to my show at Longfellow Square in Portland, ME. I hope I get to come to Maine another time to see all my fans then. Until then I’m sorry I didn’t make it today. Instead you can find us at the open mic at Vic’s Boathouse at Victoria station in Salem, MA tonight.
On May 20th at 7pm I’ll visit the online radio station 40FootHoleStudio’sshow Ladies Night to play a couple of songs and talk about my tour. It’s a show about female artists and their music (men are also welcome to listen though). The show is aired every Sunday at 7pm EST. / 12am UK time and can be heard in 30 countries.
“Founder Dave McMahon, whose musical devotion lies somewhere between fan and fanatic, explained how he first started as an internet DJ. ‘I love music,” he said “but I hate radio.’”
Which explains why the station is focused on indie music and not top 40 and have no commercial ads in between the songs.

[quote] As the music director of the Van Dyke Cafe in Miami Beach, I have hosted thousands of shows and performers. I must admit the show that Sofia performed at the club last month was one of the most memorable and enjoyable shows we have ever done. Her melodious voice, angelic tone and elegant but relaxed phrasing combined with great guitar playing and amazing songwriting made her show a top hit with our fans and staff. [/quote]
