"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

"Then someone like Sofia Talvik comes along, a singer/songwriter who is able to evoke the essence of Laurel Canyon circa the ‘60s as expressed in the work of Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Buffy Sainte-Marie and others who were able to paint beautiful tapestries from words and music." - No Depression


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.

A veteran performer with 6 full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her she is now poised to conquer the U.S with her new album "Big Sky Country". 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, creating a warm and relaxed environment for the audience. She is backed up by minimal instrumentation, and a thought-through mix of delays and harmonies by her sound designer, just giving her voice and acoustic guitar that extra something without overpowering the songs, allowing everything to stay clear and true to its nature.

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 RV) has moved the new album 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 of "Big Sky Country".

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. But the new album is not a diary from her tour, it’s more of a storybook of emotions, new and old in which everyone can find their own place.
