Cannon Beach is a long way from Sweden, but that won’t stop Sofia Talvik from making a special stop in Cannon Beach during her world tour on Thursday, June 13 at 7:00 p.m.
Talvik is promoting her latest album, Big Sky Country. An album inspired by her travels through America. Her grasp of Americana and folk music is inspiring for someone from Sweden.
“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.” wrote PopDose’s Rob Ross about Sofia Talvik’s new album. And it’s no wonder since this Swedish singer/songwriter now toured through 47 states in her little 1989 tour RV otherwise known as Lil’Chief. She’s seen more states, and more places in the USA than the average american, and she seems to love it. Her latest album ”Big Sky Country” (named one of the 5 best Americana albums of the year by British newspaper The Telegraph) celebrates her love for the vast plains, big mountains and sandy coastlines in the states that she toured through, as well as the warm and quirky people she met on the road.
She’s played the big festivals like Lollapalooza and SxSW, opened for artists like Maria McKee and David Duchovny (X-files, Californication) but the intimate setting of a smaller stage where she can casually joke and communicate with the audience is really where her strength as a performer shines the most. After all she’s in it for the music, not the fame and fortune.
“A singer/songwriter who is able to evoke the essence of Laurel Canyon circa the ’60s.” writes Lee Zimmerman on NoDepression, and continues to compare her to giants like Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins. ”In many ways, Talvik seems destined to become their heir apparent, given that her songs are striking in an effervescent and incandescent sort of way.” he continues.
