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 just did a couple of radio shows in the heart of sunny Mississippi. College station Souther Miss Today invited me to play a few songs and tell their listeners about the tour and Jackson station WLEZ fm had me play a song in the studio too. Here’s some pics and a little video from my performances there. Unfortunately there’s no online archive to listen to, but tune in to the stations anyway to enjoy good music and more.
I missed out on my gig at the Super Happy Funland SXSW after party in Houston this week as my tour bus broke down in Austin, but Space City Rock blog did a really great write up for the gig. I hope people found out in time that I couldn’t make it. I’m playing March 25th at Dun Bros Coffee in Katy, TX instead if you want to come and see my show.
Too early? Well here in Florida, where the sun is shining every day and there’s no sign of any snow people have already started putting up their Christmas decorations. You guys know that my tradition is to release a Christmas song every year and I just thought I’d let you know that I will this year too!
This year I’m happy to announce that the charity connected to the song will be Action Aid. Action Aid works in 6 different areas: Hunger, Education, Women’s rights, Economic justice, Emergencies and conflict and HIV/AIDS.
The song will be released Advent second, or December 4th if you will. Keep checking in for updates!
