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.
I hope you guys have all listened to my new EP “L – part one of L.O.V.E”. “L” is my 5th album, not counting remixes and acoustic albums. I started out playing live when I was 23 years old just playing at every little bar I could find. I built me a backing band and an audience and at 25 I was finally ready to release my first studio album “Blue Moon”. “Blue Moon” was recorded to reflect the way I sounded live back then, and is actually recorded live, all musicians together.
So although I’m looking forward and release new stuff, I think it’s important not to forget about your past accomplishes so I decided to re-release “Blue Moon” in a whole new way. So what I did was to make a YouTube album with all the songs from the album, including cover art and lyrics.
The store is overflowing of cool new stuff! Artist and designer Johan Röstwall has created a new Sofia Talvik “Jonestown” print so that YOU can stock up on things while waiting for the big US release of “Jonestown”.
We’ve got men’s tees, women’s tees, baby onesies, pins, bags – and hell, we even got a doggie tank top for your favorite little friend!
Johan Röstwall is a Sweden based artist and designer with the world as his work studio. He mixes design, illustration and art as if they were ingredients in a cake, roams through a world of volume and colors and creates art out of chaos and coincidence.
Johan has studied art, graphic design and animation in both Sweden and the US and has since 2004 worked with clients such as IKEA, Skype, Procter & Gamble just to mention a few. He works as well with the computer as he does with a pencil, but claims that his imagination is his greatest tool. His work has been shown in Paris, Singapore – and now here on sofiatalvik.com.
I’m very proud to present this awesome artwork by Johan.
