Sofia Talvik is the next rising star from Sweden. She has emerged like a lady of the forest, bringing a new interesting side to folk music. Where other artists surrender to the mainstream, Sofia makes her own paths through the musical underbrush of today.
Having released four full-length albums since 2005, Sofia is embarking on an extensive tour in the US, starting in December 2011. Leaving her backing band at home, she is performing instead with video art that brings her stories and the mystical world of Scandinavia to life.
Her soft and airy music has been recognized by music lovers and critics all over the world, allowing her tour the US several times. In 2008, she became the first Swedish female singer to play the Lollapalooza festival.
She's now doing an extensive tour throughout the whole of the USA. She started out in Florida in December and is invited to officially showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, TN, and SxSW in Austin, TX 2012 before continuing her extensive tour.
Her 5th full length album "The Owls Are Not What They Seem" was released in January 2012 to much critical acclaim.
Over the years I've been living out my passion of music and traveling in small portions, through starting my label, releasing a bunch of records and traveling through Asia and the USA many times. Every time I did something adventurous I felt more alive, and every time I came home to my apartment in Stockholm I felt like I had left a little part of myself behind.
Finally I decided it was time to go all in and that's what this tour is about. I look forward to sharing my music with new people and traveling through the US. It's Drivin' & Dreaming. (Just don't do it both at once)
Reviews on Latest Album:
The Owls Are Not What They Seem - 2012
"Listening to her music, an otherworldly edge, surprising twists and powerful, haunting vocals make her much more than just another pretty folk-pop-acoustic performer."
"I love the name because it referrers to the vast distances I will be driving across America to play for all of you, and the fact that I also follow my dream by doing so. It also reminds me of a favorite song that's called "Falling and Flying" from the movie "Crazy Heart".
