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.
Need a nice soundtrack to your summer vacation? Well isn’t this your lucky day!
Inspired by Mr Selfridge himself (but I guess everyone is doing it nowadays…) I decided to put on summer sale so that you can stock up on all the albums you haven’t already got.
Just go to the shop page music.sofiatalvik.com and browse through the albums, you can listen to them before you decide. Then use the code “SUMMER14” at check-out and – voila! you just saved yourself a whole lotta money that you can now spend on ice-cream!
From November 2011 to March 2013 I did the adventure of a lifetime. I toured America in an old RV and played my music in every little town I could find.
Many of you followed my tour through Facebook and my website and I met and became friends with so many of you along the way.
I’ve now decided to collect all my personal memories, pictures, stories and concert recordings from the tour in a coffee table book and a live album so that I can share all the fun I had with you. This is an excellent way to re-live the tour, as well as to be a part of it even if you didn’t get a chance to come to any of the shows.
Needless to say it’s a massive project that will take all summer for me to complete. That is why I’m asking you for help, and for some of your dollars to fund this huge undertaking.
I’ve decided to make this book and album it into a Kickstarter Project. That way I’ll let YOU choose how much this project is worth, how much you are willing to support my passion and work to continue to create art and music. If you don’t know how Kickstarter works, I will send out some tutorials later, but to in short you choose a tier and a reward to help me fund parts of the production costs.
Once aboard you’ll get updates on the progress, see how the book grows and get to listen to previews of the songs from the live album. Everyone who joins will also get an exclusive download of an acoustic version of my latest album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem” that I recorded out in the nature in beautiful locations along the way.
By becoming a part of the project you will help assure that the book and album becomes reality, and it will also be the only way to get your hands on it. It will be very exclusive and only printed for the ones who join, you won’t be able to order it on my website or in any other store after the project closes.
This is my way of thanking you for helping me out along the way, for making my tour possible and for your support and friendship.
