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.
Today’s Florida playlist is songs by people I know or have met at one point or another! Enjoy!!

It’s the last day of our tour. To be honest it was probably the last day Saturday as we did our last gig then. We had a great time playing for a wonderful crowd at the Wyndham Hotel. It feels a little sad to go home, but I’m also longing so much for my husband that I can’t wait to get on the plane.
My favorite gigs have been The Mint, The Swedish Showcase and probably our last gig at the Wyndham. But few memories from this tour will be stronger than meeting Suzanne Vega in person. That was way cool!
Here’s som final pics from the tour. Enjoy and I’ll see you next time!

I visited Iron Works BBQ for some beef ribs before heading home to Sweden
We’re having an awesome time at SXSW. The sun is shining and we’re dead tired from playing, partying and sleeping to little.
Last night we did our first official showcase at St Davids Hustoric Sanctuary, right before Suzanne Vega. It was a really cool venue but what’s up with all the church gigs on this tour? Is someone trying to tell me I should start playing Christian music? 😉
I actually got to hang out a little with Suzanne Vega and her band after her great gig, and managed to get a pic too.
Joakim did his yearly SXSW dance at the artist lounge after dark and everyone was happy. (video)
Today we’re really tired after getting up early to do a showcase at noon. It might not sound early but with the traffic which is just crazy we had to get going at 9 from the hotel this morning. The gig was great though. It was hosted by Mike Galaxy at Guero’s Taco Bar, outside in the sun. Next to the venue there was a really cool store with cowboy boots. I especially loved the “Gringo” ones but I’m a poor musician and can’t afford $500 boots:-(
Right now we’re curled up in the artist lounge at ACC waiting for our next gig on Little fields roof top at 6th and Brazos where we’re playing at 7.30.
