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.
A couple of years ago I did a complete video Christmas Calendar and every year I release a Christmas single. This year I’m doing the Christmas calendar again, although this time it’s not going to be all video. It will be a mix of Christmassy things, for example my favorite Christmas recipes, songs, special giveaways etc.
The BIG reward this year for signing up you’ll be the first to get my new Christmas single “One Last Wish For Christmas”.
As an indie artist, CD Baby has been my loyal companion and part of my career for many years. I was lucky enough to met the CD Baby people at the Folk Alliance international conference earlier this year and they emailed me a while ago and asked me to write a blog about how to plan and execute a US tour.
When I got the questions I felt like, hey, my answers will be sooo long it’ll turn into a book, because there’s just so much I’ve learned along the way and there’s so many details that I could include. But I tried to keep it brief so that you wouldn’t loose site of the purpose (or your excitment on planning your tour) halfway through all the tiedious details on how to get a US drivers license etc. I hope I covered the basic “need to knows” as well as some good tips for artists, touring or not, and the rest is out there in cyberspace if you google it 🙂 Read it here!

Belgian blog With Music In My Mind just wrote these wonderful words about my new album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem”. The review is originally in French but you can also read it in english through the google translate button on the site (even though google translate has a hard time doing the words justice).
