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.
Swedish American newspaper Nordstjernan just published an interview about my tour. Nordstjernan was founded in 1872 and is the oldest Scandinavian publication in the US. They visited me for my shows in NYC, of which the last one is today Thursday June 7th at Ella Lounge 7pm.
Listening to her music, an otherworldly edge, surprising twists and powerful, haunting vocals make her much more than just another pretty folk-pop-acoustic performer. In other words, in Scandinavian music terms that Americans can understand, she’s no ABBA retread and not quite the enigmatic eccentric of Bjork, but carving her own unique and welcome niche in the music world.
I don’t think so, but this upcoming monday the hair stylist that is known for making celebs like Simpson, Kate Moss, Alicia Keyes and others look their best is going to work his miracles on my not so fab, scandinavian hair. I’m not going to make this into a beauty blog (not yet anyways) but I’m quite excited to see just how glamourous I can get with the help from Michael Kanyon. And if you want to see the results too, just turn on The Voice TV (eh I don’t know when yet but probably monday night or something)…
