Americana Folk with Swedish roots
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. A veteran performer with 7 full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her.
Starting early August, Swedish Folk/Americana artist Sofia Talvik is finally going on the road with her album Paws of a Bear. As the world has been on hold for 2 years, so has her chance to play her new songs, released shortly before the pandemic hit, cancelling the two big release tours planned for 2020. For all the fans that have been waiting patiently, she is now mixing re-scheduled tour dates with new venues and music series all around the mid-west and north-east.
Armed with her breathtaking new album as well as some unreleased songs she’s taking her Winnebago Warrior Lil’Chief on a spin in early Fall, starting in Alabama, and going all the way up to the Canadian border in Michigan, and Maine, before doing a loop around New England and down to New Jersey.
”I hope I get to see some beautiful Fall colors on this tour”, says Sofia who did a similar tour in 2018. ”I’m looking forward to coming back to some favorite venues, as well as some new ones, but most of all I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of friendly faces. The online shows I did during the pandemic certainly fit a purpose, but I prefer to be able to see my audience in the room with me.”
Some of the stops include Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, The Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in Bloomington, IN and The Cultural Center of Cape Cod. True to her art, Talvik is keeping her shows intimate and personal, not unlike the 70’s coffeehouses and speakeasy’s. You will be up close and personal with a world class act that has played big festivals like Lollapalooza and SxSW and opened for artists like Maria McKee and David Duchovny (X-files, Californication). It is in this kind of setting where she can casually joke and communicate with the audience that her strength as a performer shines the most.
“Paws of a Bear, finds Talvik taking a more Americana-flavored approach — influenced by Jason Isbell, Valerie June and others” – Billboard Magazine
“This album is solid gold from start to finish” – Americana Highways
“Talvik develops is of a similar tapestry to Joni Mitchell, tapping into that same knack for soul-stirring clarity and resonance. Between, however, is something of a different nature. Open-air production sets the scene for an evocative and atmospheric release from the Swedish folk artist, coming in the form of an upcoming album, Paws of a Bear.” – PopMatters
