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.
I would like to start 2011 by giving away a free song to you all. You’ve already seen the awesome video, and now you’ll be able to download the cool remix of “You Plate Your Heart With Gold” by The Courage as well! And if that wasn’t enough you also get to choose exactly what format you prefer – mp3, FLAC or wave.
Jesper Jonsson aka The Courage is a Swedish artist who just released his self titled debut album, has made this great remix of my song “You Plate Your Heart With Gold” and cut a great video to go along with it. Visit The Courage on Facebook here!

Yet a day in the closet recording a new song. Each time I go in there I’m stunned over by how long it actually takes to do all the takes, chorus vocals and everything. I spend at least half a day just recording vocals and editing them. As you’ve already seen my tiny closet studio this is just a blog and no vlog, but maybe I should call it a mlog because here’s a sample of today’s song for you. It’s called “You plate your heart with gold” and I was inspired to write it after I heard Mason Jenning’s song “Which way your heart will go” and actually thought he sang “you plate your heart with gold”. It’s a song about people posing to be better than they are. They keep hurting others but pretend they have a heart of gold.
This preview is unmixed and a work in progress and will probably sound a lot different on the album when released.
