Swedish Singer makes stop in NZ on her 2019 World Tour

Swedish Singer makes stop in New Zealand on her 2019 World Tour

Sofia Talviks is an Americana/Folk musician and her 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 7 full length albums who tours both Europe and USA every year.

8 years of performing live in big and small settings, at Festivals and in living rooms, in castles and cabins, has honed her craft into something more than just an artist, - an avid storyteller with a voice comparable to giants like Joni Mitchell, or as the Folk/Americana Magazine NoDepression said it ”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.”.

Her 2015 release ”Big Sky Country” was a Folk/Americana tribute to the vast planes and big skies of North America after her 1,5 year long tour through the country. Her new album due to be released in 2019 is reflecting inwards instead of her surroundings, exploring thoughts about identity and home.

Her delicate songs are performed in an intimate way, showing off Sofia’s angelic voice enhanced only by a tasteful mix of harmonies and delays, accompanied by the steady picking of her acoustic guitar and the rhythm section consisting of her own two feet, bells and a stomp box.

"Greenland is to date the most remote place I've performed, but I honestly never thought I'd get to travel to the other side of the globe, to New Zealand, for a tour", says Sofia. "I've always been fascinated by the pictures and movies I've seen from New Zealand, it looks so amazing and I'm a sucker for beautiful landscapes", she continues. "It's always an inspiration to see new places and meet new people, so maybe this will result in a few new songs down the road."
