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.
In the end of October 2009 I’m releasing my third album “Jonestown” in the USA and later on in Japan. To give you a preview of the songs from the album I have gathered 12 of my favorite Swedish artists who will each perform one song from the album live with me on tape. Every week a new video is released, with a new song and a new guest artist.
First you’ll meet Jonna Lee, and be sure to stay tuned to see who comes next.
Guest artist: Jonna Lee
This, ladies and gentlemen, is Jonna Lee:
* She made a whole electro album last year, but changed her mind in time for release because it didn’t feel right.
* After that, she wrote, recorded, and produced “10 pieces, 10 bruises” under 2007 (with Claes Björklund)
* She wrote the song “And your love” with Ed Harcourt in mind, sent him the song and then recorded it as a duet a few weeks later.
I have an exciting fall ahead of me. My album Jonestown is being released in the US, Canada and Japan at the end of October and I have a lot of fun gigs coming up both in Sweden and in the US. The good thing is that a lot of these gigs are free and you should definitely swing by if you’re in the neighbourhood. Here’s what’s coming up:
Stockholm, Sweden: September 22nd: Musslan, Dalagatan 46 No admission
I’m happy to announce that I’m this week’s featured artist in the Microsoft campaign. My song “Burning Fields” from my new album “Jonestown” will be featured as one of ten chosen favorites, out of thousands of songs on http://www.myspace.com/windows. “Jonestown” will have a grand release in the US, Canada and Japan in October. You can download the song for free and also check out loads of other talented bands. You can also check out the song and become my fan on Reverb Nation.
