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.
Swedish American newspaper Nordstjernan just published an interview about my tour. Nordstjernan was founded in 1872 and is the oldest Scandinavian publication in the US. They visited me for my shows in NYC, of which the last one is today Thursday June 7th at Ella Lounge 7pm.
I’ve just released a spanking new video for my song The Garden from my new album The Owls Are Not What They Seem. The video is filmed partly at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham by Jonas Westin and the kaleidoscope segments are filmed by Jason Gordon in Florida. I cut and edited the video myself and Jonas did the post production. An HD version will be uploaded at a later date du to bad wifi on the tour…
I would like to start 2011 by giving away a free song to you all. You’ve already seen the awesome video, and now you’ll be able to download the cool remix of “You Plate Your Heart With Gold” by The Courage as well! And if that wasn’t enough you also get to choose exactly what format you prefer – mp3, FLAC or wave.
Jesper Jonsson aka The Courage is a Swedish artist who just released his self titled debut album, has made this great remix of my song “You Plate Your Heart With Gold” and cut a great video to go along with it. Visit The Courage on Facebook here!
This Monday we had a wonderful night at the fantastic venue “Södra Teatern” celebrating the release of my new album “Florida”. The place was packed with people and we had a fun gig playing many of the new songs. During the gig we had a little competition where people could win a Sofia Talvik tote if they took a picture and tagged it as me on Facebook. We got so many great pics. Here’s a few of them and we’ll appoint a winner at the end of this week.
Thanks all for coming an making it such a great night, now don’t forget to buy the new album too. You know you can buy a download on music.sofiatalvik.com and decide your own price, or if you prefer a CD we have signed ones in the shop.
There’s also an acoustic version of the entire album that will be available for purchase in a week or so.
