I’ll be the first to admit that I am a sucker for singer/songwriters from Scandinavia. Maybe it’s something in their water or the long winters that seem to cultivate such amazing singers. Until a couple of weeks ago I had never heard of Swedish singer Sofia Talvik. After listening to a few of her silky smooth tunes I was hooked. Then to my surprise I found out Sofia was coming to San Diego as part of a pre-SXSW West Coast tour.
Not really a newcomer but rather a ready to breakout talent, Sofia has three full length LPs to her credit. Her most recent, Jonestown, is a reference to the tragedy that occurred in Guyana over thirty years ago. She is currently working on a fourth album which will be released this May.
Wednesday is your chance to witness Sofia Talvik in San Diego’s most unique setting, Acoustic Music San Diego. The venue utilizes a Normal Heights church sanctuary and the sound is terrific (been there many times). This is a rare opportunity to see a young talent and cure the midweek blues all at once.
