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.
My “Florida Acoustic” Tour is over and it’s been great! I did 7 gigs in 7 days all of them outside. Going from one side of Sweden to the other I was so happy to be travelling with a Bose L1 system. Not only was it a dream to travel with as it’s so light and easy to demount but the comfort of knowing how your sound is going to be no matter where you perform is priceless. One of the biggest challenges you meet as a performer is coming to different venues and having to play with different sound systems of different quality so it was really relaxing to know that my music would sound the same no matter where I was. I met a great deal of lovely people and also had a steady audience online that followed my live stream.
A big thanks to all of you that listened live and online, to all the venues and of course Bose for making my tour a great deal easier! Here’s some videos and photos from the tour:
I’ve just arrived in Hawaii to do my first gigs! The weather here is awesome and as the sun thirsting Swede I am I have already got a little sunburnt. It’s been almost 7 months since I saw any sun so who can blame me.
I’m really looking forward to all the gigs that we have lined up, a little sad that we’ll only be in San Francisco one day as that is one of my favorite cities and there’s so much there that I’d love to show the guys in the band. I’m thinking I have to at least take them down for a clam chowder at the Warf.
I’m also really looking forward to coming to San Diego (buy tickets here!) where I’ll be playing at Acoustic Music San Diego. When my latest album “Jonestown” was released in the US last year I was interviewed by “The Jonestown Report” which has its officie in San Diego. After the interview was published a former member and survivor of People’s Temple and the Jonestown tragedy contacted me personally, which you can imagine was quite overwhelming but also one of the sweetest and most heartfelt feedbacks I’ve ever had to my music. You can read the interview here.
Here’s a few photos from the tour so far!

Tired, but happy to arrive in Hawaii after a 22 hour flight!
Pretty view from my hotel room window! (don’t you just love the Histamatic app for the iPhone)
I promise I’ll make a better blog about the tour, with pics and videos soon. But for now I have gathered a few interviews and stuff that has been written about my performance at Lolla. Check them out here:
So I’ve just arrived in San Francisco, the first stop on my US promo tour for my upcoming album. And no, sorry there won’t be a lot of gigs for you guys to check out, it’s mostly business this time, but I will share a few moments with you anyway.
The first thing scheduled was a photoshoot for Music Fashion Magazine and their “band fashion spread”. Talanted photographer Shelby Duncan made me pose with toy horses and San Franciscian signature windows. Check out her website here: www.shelbyduncan.com . We instantly made plans to meet up again in Los Angeles where she lives. These documentary pics from the shoot was taken by my man-ager 😉
