I’m releasing my new album Florida on YouTube. Over a couple of months I will be doing animated videos of the lyrics to each song on the album. When the whole video version of the album is released I will compile all videos and make it available as a download.

First out is the title track of the album.

This week I’m singing with Karin Ström

Worldwide release!

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.

Way back in the 90’s I read a book called “Bensin”. The author was a girl my age, Karin Ström, and she wrote about her life in London, as an aspiring artist. Now, years later, Karin has not only released a critically acclaimed album, she’s got another one on the way.’

I’m happy to present this week’s guest artist: Karin Ström

Sofia Talvik / Karin Ström – Lower case letters

Song: Lower case letters (Jonestown 2008)
Guest artist: Karin Ström

Karin Ström was born in Kristianstad, a small town in the south of Sweden. She always wanted to be a singer. At the age of 13 she started writing her first songs.  20 years old she moved to London, where she got signed to the Canadian record label Nettwerk which led her to relocate to Los Angeles. Here, she released a self titled five track EP (US, Canada, UK and Sweden) with lyrics in English.

Back in Stockholm she wrote, produced and recorded the EP “Sneda Ögons EP” in the autumn of 2005, and released it on her own label Datadamen Records. Datadamen (originally Karin’s DJ name) means Computer Lady, and this marked a change of Karin’s sound from organic and guitarbased to electronic and computerized. She also switched languages and now sings in Swedish. The 24th of January 2007 Karin released her first full length album “En saga om en sten”.

Some good new music

I don’t buy music that often, especially not now that I have spotify. But I actually bought an album today, and it was bloody hard to find it. You see I saw the movie “Ghost town” a while ago and heard a song I really liked. It turned out to be Mason Jennings “Which way your heart will go” from the album “Boneclouds”. I tried his website and I tried iTunes. I’m not a fan of Amazon as nothing ever seems to be delivered when I order from them so finally through Last.fm I found a digital download site who distributed this album. It actually inspired me to write a song as I didn’t quite catch the lyrics at first and thought he sang something else which I later used in my song 🙂

I also want to share this beautiful video with you, and the music isn’t half bad either. When I find the album I just might buy it too…

New interview on Riveting Riffs!

Canadian Music Zine “Riveting Riffs” has just published a fresh interview with me!

“Sofia Talvik is a pop star on the rise. She has already conquered her native Sweden, won the hearts of those at Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival in August of 2008, and in March of 2009 the gifted singer / songwriter, with the breathtaking vocals, will be appearing at SXSW in Austin Texas, followed by an appearance at the Canadian Music Festival in Toronto, Canada. Talvik, who writes all of her lyrics in English, has received strong radio play on Sweden’s radio stations, and recently recorded a mini concert and interview for SR P3, which was aired on November 12th. Her current CD Jonestown is causing quite a stir on the international music scene, with her single, “My James Dean…”
