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.
In 2008 I became the first female Swedish artist to play at the Lollapalooza festival. It was also my first US tour and now, four years later I’ve done a lot of tours and am on my biggest one ever. Since December I’ve done over 100 gigs in the US and I’m working my way towards Chicago again. So when an opportunity arrose to enter a competition for a slot at this year’s Lollapalooza I felt I had to enter. But in order to make them understand that they should book me I need YOUR help. The voting for the competition is live and you can help me by casting a vote every day, share it on your FB wall and with your friends. If I get picked to play I will give a VIP pass to Lollaplooza to one of you that helped me by voting.
Did you go to one of my shows but missed out on buying a CD? Or did you miss out on the TOANWTS pre-order? Well – you are in LUCK! I’ve decided to put up a limited amount of physical copies of TOANWTS and Florida for sale here through the website. You’ll get them signed too, something that you won’t get unless you bought one at any of my shows!
Today I’m releasing my 5th album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem”. Thank you everyone who pre-ordered the CD and to all my fans who pledged for the four EPs in L.O.V.E that preceded this album. (To make it clear for those of you who haven’t heard the EPs – this is a totally different production.)
I’m shipping all of the pre-ordered signed albums today. You who have pre-ordered will also get your download codes today. And for you who missed out on the physical release here’s some links to where you can listen. You will still be able to listen and purchase a download in any format you prefer here: Sofia’s music store.
If you’d rather go through the middle man, you can listen and purchase a download here (and probably a bunch of other online stores too):
Last chance saloon for all of you that haven’t pre-ordered your copy of my new album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem”. You have until midnight tonight to get your pre-order or you will turn into a pumpkin or possibly an owl. The only signed physical albums that will be available are the pre-order ones. After January 31st you’ll only be able to get the digital version of the album.
Here’s a little video from Birmingham Sloss Furnaces where I play the song The War from my upcoming album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem” (TOANWTS). If you haven’t already ordered your copy you can do it here! Signed physical CDs are only available until the release date January 31st.
