Inside the Gallery
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 that has been described as neo-folk.
She is a veteran performer with 6 full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. Her songs go straight to the heart with lyrics of love and loss, and at the concerts she binds them together with personal anecdotes from her many tours in the USA and Europe.
Growing up in Sweden her music has always had a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage, making her a favorite among music lovers, but her 16 month, and 37 state long tour, through the USA (in an old RV) has moved her new album ”Big Sky Country” closer to the Americana tradition. The adventure on the road spurred a lot of emotions, both those of triumph and joy, but also those of self doubt and defeat - all of which found their way into the songs. Living like a musical nomad, moving from place to place, slowly but steadily building her audience through her heartfelt and personal performances she got to experience the USA in a way few people do. The people she met opened their homes and hearts to her and some of them even made it into her songs.
”Her sounds dig deep into the heart and elicit something truly awestruck and amazed. One of the best and most intuitive songwriter on the scene; her music takes your mind to the scenes and sights she sings.” - Musicmusings and such
