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.
When I released my album Jonestown I released 12 live videos where I play the songs from the album live with different Swedish guest artists. One of them was Christian Kjellvander and I am proud to tell you that he will once again play with me, this time on my Xmas concert “Sofia Talviks Julmys” at Mosebacke this Sunday!
If you’re in Sweden you should also turn up the volume on your radio today for Musikplats Stockholm in P4 where I’ll be a guest!
Known for both his career in the band Loosegoats as well as his many praised solo albums, Christian Kjellvander is probably the most American country-esque singer/songwriter in the whole of Scandinavia. Or as “The Sun” describes his music; “You’d bet your bottom dollat that the man behind it lived in a small American town.”
Check out the last live video with Christian Kjellvander here:
När jag släppte min platta Jonestown förra året gjorde jag 12 stycken live-videos med olika gästartister. En av dem var Christian Kjellvander.
Nu har jag fått den fina möjligheten att ha Christian som gästartist igen! På söndag är han med och sjunger på Sofia Talviks julmys på Mosebacke och jag presenterar honom i dagens lucka. Har du inte redan köpt biljett så gå genast in på www.mosebacke.se och skaffa en!
Idag kan du dessutom höra mig i musikplats Stockholm på p4, ratta in radion!
Coming home from a trip to the south of Sweden and my nephew’s christening in a church built in 1653 (yes, I’m from Europe where history is from haha) I was pleasantly surprised by two reviews of my work. One is a review of my gig at House of Sweden in Washington, DC about a week ago and the other is a review of my album Jonestown. Read them here:
