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.
As you may know I’m playing the Lollapalooza in Chicago August 1st but I’m also doing a full tour the week before so if you can’t make it to Chicago, check out my website to see if I’ll be visiting your home town.
So, I’m back in cold, cold Sweden after a short but lovely time in Austin, TX. where I performed in the famecast finals.
The video from the finals will be published on the famecast website on Thursday, and you’ll be able to vote every day for a week after that. If you haven’t registered you’ll have to do that first.
Here’s som pics from my time in Austin. I hope I get to go back soon again!
I recently joined up with the site friaburma.nu where you easily can donate money through a text message (sms) to help the struggle for freedom in Burma.
The result is a video of me performing one of the songs from my upcoming album live in a studio while being filmed. The song is called Arms and Armour (lyrics available on www.myspace.com/sofiatalvik ) and you can now watch the live video on friaburma.nu or directly here below:

Västerbottens folkblad did an interview with me when I visited Skellefteå and played at Trästocksfestivalen. Skellefteådebut för Sofia Talvik. Enligt Trästockfestivalens hemsida har Sofia Talvik ett välförtjänat rykte om att vara väldigt bra live.
– Har jag det ryktet hoppas jag att jag kan leva upp till det, säger hon och skrattar.
