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.

for having us! We loved to play at Trästock, and you were everything but indifferent on my gig! I loved the laidback feeling with all of you sitting around like I was playing in your livingroom.
The door seemed kind of crowded so I hope everyone that wanted to catch the gig got in alright. So thank you, everyone sitting in the audience and everyone working with the festival for making me feel so welcome at Trästock.
Sometimes when you're working on something creative, like I'm working on my album now, you get alot of other creative ideas.
Isn't it typical, just as I decided which songs to have on the album, I get so inspired I write a new song that I just have to add as well. Not that I'm complaining, a moment of inspiration is always welcome and wonderful. Last night it ended up with this song:
"Will you call me when you're sober"
And for all of you living in Stockholm, don't miss the gig at Landet thursday the 17th.
This is my daily routine: come home from work, embark myself in my bedroom studio and play until my fingers bleed.
It gets really hot in there as well as I have to have all windows and doors closed. So today I had to cut off a pair of nylon stockings, make little holes for my fingers and use it as a glove on my left hand because my palm was so damp and I couldn´t change the chords fast enough and kept getting stuck. Not very stylish I tell you, but it worked!
Anyway, I feel rather content with todays recording even though I kept getting cramps in my hands and my fingertips are kind of sore now
I decided to post a little sample of today´s recording of "It´s silly now". I haven´t begun recording the band yet so it´s just me so far. Maybe I´ll add new versions later and you can all hear how the song evolves with more instruments.
Listen here: Silly
Time for tea, tata folks!
