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.
December 13th is the celebration of Saint Lucia in Sweden. We usually celebrate by having a “Lussetåg” a Lucia parade, but instead me and Sweden’s sweetest jazz singer Anna Christoffersson are going to teach you how to bake Swedish Lucia Saffron Bread. We’re also going to sing you a Christmas song!
Still haven’t figured out what to get your lovers for Christmas and missed out on my special Christmas offer a few days ago? Don’t fret! Anna have some excellent albums that will make great Christmas gifts to anyone with good taste in music! Go here to get Anna’s albums: American iTunes Swedish iTunes
I just sent the first shipload of songs to the guy who's going to mix the album and it feels so good. I keep fantazising about how it's going to be when all is finished and I can hold that little piece of plastic in my hand.
Anyway, some other good news is that I finally posted som pics of Hanna who plays the soprano saxophone on my album. I forgot the camera the day we recorded but thank god for cellphones with bad cameras in them, here's some artsy pics of Hanna now.
My beautiful and talanted friend Hanna!
I actually had my first band with Hanna back in the 90's. We were a jazz-pop band then 🙂 Quite a different sound from what I'm doing now.
