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’m hoping you love the new Christmas single! I love it so much I decided that everyone needed a stylish Christmas garnment/accessory to go with it. So I went ahead and created some “One Last Wish For Christmas” items that will make excellent gifts to everyone no matter if you’re 0 or 100. I’ll be using the apron myself, there’s always so much to cook for Christmas, right! If you keep following the calendar you’ll get some of my yummy recipies! And the Christmas single, is yours to grab here!

A few days ago I released my yearly Christmas single. It’s called “One Last Wish For Christmas” and it’s recorded partly in the US and partly in Sweden (thank you internet). The single has been very well received and here’s a selection of quotes from some writers around the globe:
[quote] “One Last Wish For Christmas” has the feel of a simple and intimate Indie Folk song while simultaneously being rich, full, and immediately pop accessible. It’s sort of Hank Williams meets the Pogues “Fairytale Of New York”, but much prettier. (…) It’s just wonderful! [/quote]
[quote]One Last Wish for Christmas” is “a story about love, loss, and afterthought at Christmas.” It is heartbreakingly beautiful, and like many of her songs, it stays with me long after I’ve finished listening to it.”[/quote]
[quote] During the years I’ve fallen in love with her beautiful alternative folk songs. Especially with the sad ballad Snowy White River (2009). This year I’m pleasantly surprised to learn that Sofia has returned to her roots.” [/quote]
Welcome to my 2012 Christmas Calendar! Through-out December 1st-25th I will do fun Christmassy things everyday and you can follow the calendar here on my website, on Facebook or you can get it straight to your inbox every day by clicking on the link below!
So for the first window of my calendar I’m giving you my new Christmas single “One Last Wish For Christmas”. Every year I release a new original Christmas single. It’s always for free, but you can choose your own price if you want to pay for it anyway. A huge thank you to my wonderful band back in Sweden who have done an amazing job recording and mixing the single; Joakim Lundgren my co-producer, perkussionist, backing strings arranger, mixer and masterer, Marcus Högquist on guitar, Christian Hörgen on cello, Janne Manninen on bass and Kristoffer Jonsson on trombone.
And thank you to all of my friends and fans who supported my tour this year! I hope you all enjoy this little token of appreciation. Merry Christmas!
A couple of years ago I did a complete video Christmas Calendar and every year I release a Christmas single. This year I’m doing the Christmas calendar again, although this time it’s not going to be all video. It will be a mix of Christmassy things, for example my favorite Christmas recipes, songs, special giveaways etc.
The BIG reward this year for signing up you’ll be the first to get my new Christmas single “One Last Wish For Christmas”.
