about

For over 10 years Sofia has made it her tradition to write and release a free Christmas single every year. This year she has re-imagined, re-recorded, re-mixed and re-mastered these songs to make them come together as an album. This album is so unique, not just because 13 of the 14 songs are originals but because the songs focus on the darker side of Christmas, something you don't hear that often in Christmas music.

The New single "This Great Old Christmas Night" is a song inspired by old Irish folk songs, but both lyrics and melody are written by Sofia Talvik. The production is simple and clear, with only some guitar, violin and cello lifting Sofia's angelic vocals. It’s a song about leaving this world at Christmas.

about

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

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, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk. She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
