Sofia Talvik concert – Folk Americana with Swedish Roots
March 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Why would a Folk/Americana artist from Sweden choose to go to Corrales?
Well that’s not the question Swedish artist Sofia Talvik is asking herself.
What she’s been asking herself – ever since 2011 – is “why not?”, and that has taken her through big and small towns in 47 states and all through Europe and faraway places like New Zealand. “Why not?” is the question that launched her career as a touring artist to begin with.
“A lot of people say that I’m living the American dream, and maybe I am… or maybe not, all I know is that I’m living my own dream, Sofia says. If someone asks you if you’d like to live your dream life I don’t think many people would say no. The problem is when you’re asked to give up all the safety you’ve grown accustomed to in your life. But without taking risks you won’t get to your dream. It’s not that I was never afraid, or doubted my decisions, but I kept pushing on and here I am today with 9 years of touring and over a thousand shows and experiences under my belt.”
Sofia is now embarking in her tiny -89 tour RV Lil’Chief, on a 2 months tour through the South with stops in NM, TX (Official artist at SxsW), LA, and all the way down to southern Florida. Most of the concerts will take place in intimate venues, a perfect setting for an evening of heartfelt music and interesting stories.
9 years of performing live in big and small settings, at Festivals and in living rooms, in castles and cabins, she has honed her craft into something more than just an artist, – an avid storyteller with a voice comparable to giants like Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins, or as the East Oregonian put it – ”Sofia Talvik’s mesmerizing voice is really all that she’ll need to entertain.”
Her new Folk/Americana album “Paws Of A Bear” is the 8th in her catalogue not counting EPs and singles. It was released in September 2019 and has been praised in numerous publications and blogs such as Billboard, PopMatters and Americana Highways. The first single ”Take Me Home” charted in the top 10 of Folk Radio Charts for several months last year.
