Swedish Singer-Songwriter Sofia Talvik at Nordic Heritage Museum

Soft, airy and graceful, Sweden's Sofia Talvik's songs touch on themes of love and heartbreak, as well as a healthy dose of anecdotal stories from her own life. Her vocals are backed by minimal instrumentation, including an acoustic guitar, cello, double bass, soft percussion and sometimes piano, to create melodic stories that reveal the simple world of a 32-year-old songwriter traversing an array of emotions.
