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.
In just a week my US tour begins. December is already packed with gigs all over the Sunshine State (Florida). I mean it’s the place to be when my home country is all dark and cold, right! So I packed my bags and flew over the ocean and here I am. I just bought an RV that I’m fixing up so I can have somewhere to lay my hat on the road. It’s an old Gulfstream Conquest, and it turned out to be a bit more work that I had hoped for. But now that we tore most of the interior out, we can start putting things in and hopefully we’ll be able to live in it a week from now (termites and water leaks hopefully gone).
The first gig is at the Broward Folk Clubat Your big picture Café in Davie, December 2nd. Then we’ll head back to Orlando and work our way from there down the west coast and then up the east coast. You can find all information about dates and venues HERE! If you are interested in hosting a house concert or have a venue that you would like me to play at, please contact me here!
Today’s Florida playlist is songs by people I know or have met at one point or another! Enjoy!!

In the end of October 2009 I’m releasing my third album “Jonestown” in the USA and later on in Japan. To give you a preview of the songs from the album I have gathered 12 of my favorite Swedish artists who will each perform one song from the album live with me on tape. Every week a new video is released, with a new song and a new guest artist.
You may have heard his voice on the soundtrack to Gray’s Anatomy and other TV shows. But did you know that The Sunshine is in fact a Swedish band? Well indeed they are, and after a summer with too much rain, I’m happy to present some Sunshine!
This week’s guest artist: Pelle Tamleht, singer in The Sunshine.
Every week until the release of my new album “Jonestown” I”m inviting a new guest artist to perform one of my songs with me. When all the live videos are released there will be a competition where you can win a box with albums from all the guest artists.
