Sofia Talvik
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Sofia Talvik on Friday August 21, 2020 at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. 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.
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 her music 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 her 2015 album 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, its more of a storybook of emotions, new and old in which everyone can find their own place.

Sofias debut album Blue Moon was released in 2005 to much critical acclaim followed by Street of Dreams in 2007 which features a duet with indie pop icon Bernard Butler from British band Suede, released on her then newly formed record label Makaki Music. Continuing a steady pace of releasing albums Sofia released her album Jonestown, named after the tragic 1978 event in Jonestown, Gyuana, 2008, and was the first Swedish female artist to play the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, that same year.

Its not often that an album takes your breath away, and I hate to sound hyperbolic, but Florida actually has several Oh my God! moments of sheer beauty.  CD Baby

about Sofia Talviks 2010 release Florida, and album inspired by spending a few hot summer months in Florida in 2009.

Sofia who toured the US several times from her first success at the Lollapalooza festival in 2008 has been invited to officially showcase at SxSW 3 years as well as to The Folk Alliance International Conference in 2012, completed a 16 month long tour of the US promoting her 5th release The Owls Are Not What They Seem. The tour took her through 37 states and she did over 250 concerts. Shes been noted in media all over the the world for her impeccable live performances and captivating stage presence. In October 2013 she released her album Drivin & Dreaming LIVE an album with live recordings from her U.S tour.

In March 2014 Sofia Talvik released the EP FOLK  a six track special. A hauntingly beautiful EP of old Swedish folk songs in a new modern presentation.

Folk is as short as it is blissful. It gracefully bows to tradition. Sofia Talvik captivates the listeners with the soul and emotions of these folk songs. The Swede is one of those singer-songwriters who turns everything she touches into gold.  Lie In The Sound

April 2015 Sofias 6th studio album Big Sky Country was released. A storybook of adventures and hardships, about sometimes doubting yourself but also finding strength within yourself. 10 original songs written on the road as well as in the contemplation after, beautifully packaged in a simple yet powerful production. Big Sky Country also contains a cover of Starwalker by Buffy Sainte-Marie. The album is being distributed in the USA and Canada by ILS/Caroline/Universal. The album was appointed 4th best americana album of the year by U.K newspaper The Telepgraph.

After having continued her tradition of releasing an original Christmas song, every year for over 10 years, Sofia released her Christmas album When Winter Comes in 2017. The album reached no 5 on Folk Radio Charts in the USA, and Sofia was the 3rd most played folk artist of the month of December.

The new album Paws of a Bear is in the works and is planned to be released 2019.
