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.
The multi-talanted Jesper Jonsson has done it again! This time he’s produced and animated a video for my song ‘Glow’ from ‘O – part two of L.O.V.E’. All the beautiful animations in the video are all hand made by Jesper. Jesper who also releases his own music under the name “The Courage” did the remix and remix video for my song ‘You plate your heart with gold’ from my latest full length album ‘Florida’ and I liked it so much that I just had to ask him to do this video. His friend Per Gustin filmed all the sequences that I’m appearing in and it all came together in this beautiful piece of art.
We had the chance to make this with the help from my fans that supported the making of ‘O- part two of L.O.V.E’ via pledgemusic.com.
Thank you to Jesper, Per and all of you that keep supporting me and my music.
So. This is the last video to be posted, and you have now heard all 12 songs from my new album “Jonestown”.
Last but not least I’m happy to present Maia Hirasawa. Maia received a P3 Guld award for newcomer of the year when she released her album, and I had to go all the way to Gothenburg to record this song with her. I caught her in the middle of her changing apartments but she was as happy and carefree as her own music is, and she also brought that to the last song of this series of videos, “Something Good”.
About Maia: Maia Hirasawa has sung in a million different bands we most recently recognize her as the backing vocalist and multi instrumentalist in Hello Saferide, but she also played support to HS the entire of last year and sold every copy of her demo that she had the energy to burn on her Macbook. She won the Roland/Sami price for the best un-signed act of 2006. She’s in fact a skilled jazz singer, has a background as a Brit-popper and listens to Loney Dear and Rufus Wainright, but not to Regina Spektor, simply cause everyone says that they bear resemblance. She is half Japanese. “Though I’m Just Me”, is the name of Maia Hirasawa’s solo debut album.
Stay tuned for the competition, which will begin soon, where you can win signed albums!
