Sofia Talvik at Goorin Bros. Hat Shop - South Congress
Sofia Talviks music has a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage, making her a favorite among music lovers. A North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy. She is a veteran performer with 6 full length albums who tours both Europe and USA every year. She’s seen more states, and more places in the USA than the average american, and she seems to love it.
Her "Close Connection Tour 2018" will start in California and work it's way trough the southern U.S and end up in Texas. Most of the concerts will take place in intimate venues. Her songs and stage presence sets the stage for an intimate relationship with the audience - a unique and warm evening of live music and heartfelt stories about the people and places she's met and seen along the road. This Swedish singer/songwriter has now toured through 47 states in her little 1989 tour RV otherwise known as Lil’Chief.
She has been compared with giants like Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins, as well as fellow Swedes "First Aid Kit", but has her own raw quality, a down to earth sound that makes her brilliant songwriting skills shimmer even more. She doesn’t have to hide behind the sounds, her songs and performance speaks for themselves.
Sofia Talvik was charting as the 3rd most played artist on Folk Radio USA in December, and her Christmas album "When Winter Comes" charted as no 5. Her Christmas single charted as no 7.
Her latest album ”Big Sky Country” (named one of the 5 best Americana albums of the year by British newspaper The Telegraph) celebrates her love for the vast plains, big mountains and sandy coastlines in the states that she toured through, as well as the warm and quirky people she met on the road. "One of the most distinctively memorable Americana albums of recent years was made by a tirelessly touring, talented Swedish songwriter Sofia Talvik" wrote New York Music Daily when Sofia Talvik’s toured along the East Coast last year.
She’s played the big festivals like Lollapalooza and SxSW, opened for artists like Maria McKee and David Duchovny (X-files, Californication) but the intimate setting of a smaller stage where she can casually joke and communicate with the audience is really where her strength as a performer shines the most.
"Even though this young lady is from Sweden, I’d place her at the forefront of the American vanguard. One listen will tell you why and how." - PopDose
"A singer/songwriter who is able to evoke the essence of Laurel Canyon circa the ’60s." - NoDepression
