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 had a great time in Illinois and did a lot of radio and interviews. Here’s a few of them.
[quote] With her light, airy soprano and haunting, faraway melancholy, it’s easy to imagine Talvik herself hypnotizing crowds in a small-town biker bar, right before vanishing into the ether (…) continue reading here [/quote]

[quote] In 2008, Ms. Talvik became the first Swedish female singer to play the Lollapalooza festival. This year, she was showcased at the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, Tenn., and South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. (continue reading here) [/quote]
Episode 7 is now up and running. In this episode we get stuck in Boston traffic and you’ll see some great New England Singer/Songwriters whom I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with, Christa Gniadek and Michelle Lewis. I’m on NBC’s Mass Appeal and WERS Left end. You can hear the radio shows from the Boston area here!
Remember to share the episodes with your friends to keep them coming. It’s tons of work making every episode and I’m doing it all by myself on top of bookings, promotion, playing live and trying to keep things in shape on the tour. A few extra views will keep making me motivated to put in the extra work! 🙂
You can see pictures from all my shows on my Facebook page here!

Philadelphia newspaper Daily Local News published a nice interview today for my show at the PhilaMOCA in Philadelphia, PA tonight (Wednedsday) and my upcoming show on June 28 at Chaplin’s in Spring City. You can read it all here!
Swedish music mag Lira recently published an interview about my tour and wrote a really nice review for my new album The Owls Are Not What They Seem or as I like to call it “TOANWTS”. As the magazine isn’t available outside Sweden, I’m sharing a translated extract of the review with you here:
[quote] What really lifts the songs are the symphonic but soothingly so produced string arrangements, the playful flute and not to mention – the warm-sounding trombone. The musicians give the songs the very personality you’re longing for, especially at the times when the soloists step outside the harmonious sound. My fondness for the singer/songwriter genre is not particularly large but Sofia Talvik’s music captures, touches and radiates at the same time an indefinable beauty. [/quote]
