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.

[quote] We had a full house of north Alabama bluegrass and folk music lovers and before it was over Sofia had them eating out of her hand. A standing ovation and encore followed. It was a great night and she is a great talent. [/quote]

Japanese record company Coco Hearts is releasing my album “Florida” December 22nd.
“The album will be designed as a Christmas present from Cocoheart to Japanese music lovers. The best gift, isn’t it!” says Coco Hearts.
The album will be released as a special Japan release with additional bonus tracks. I’m really looking forward to our new collaboration. I want to celebrate this especially by reminding all of you to download my free remix album “Street of Dreamix” where Japanese artists Himawarii contributed with a remix. Download it here!
Today it’s December 1st and the first window of my Christmas Calendar.
An Christmas Calendar orAdvent calendar is a special calendar which is used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. Today, most advent calendars are made for children. In Europe you can find the cardboard ones in stores and usually see a them as a television show for children, starting on the first of December, and ending on Christmas Eve.
Sofia Talvik’s Advent Calendar however, is not made for children but for music lovers. Through December you’ll be able to watch 24 episodes where I celebrate Christmas in different ways up till Christmas eve.
I also have the tradition of giving away a free Christmas single each year and this year I’m releasing the single “Snowy White River” in collaboration with Music Teachers Without Borders and Gehrmans Publishing. Gehrmans Publishing is issuing a sheet music for “Snowy White River” and all proceeds will go to Music Teachers Without Borders, who works through and with music to give a meaningful life for children living in an otherwise tough environment.
So not only will you be able to learn how to play a Sofia Talvik song, but you’ll also do something good for children who need it. Gehrman’s publishing will also have a Christmas Calendar, to check it out on www.gehrmans.se where you also can download the sheet music for “Snowy White River”.
You can download the single here: www.sofiatalvik.com/snowy and check out me and my cello player perform it live in my livingroom.
