ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
”I know there’s something good in me” so sings Sofia Talvik on her new album ”Jonestown”, this DIY-artist who both runs her own label and finds new fans all over the world.
With ‘Jonestown’, Sofia Talvik has further evolved her sound, joining forces with respected artist and producer Tobias Fröberg, who has toured with José Gonzales and produced the artist Peter Morén from “Peter, Bjorn and John”.
Sweden’s most exciting up-and-coming singer/songwriter recently made it to the finals in the online talent competition Famecast which resulted in her being booked to the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August. Sofia has also been appointed artist of the week and songwriter of the month on the leading industry sites Hitquarters.com and Songquarters.com.

Sofia Talvik about her third album, ’Jonestown’:
– I watched a documentary on TV about the cult People’s Temple and it moved me so much that I wrote a song inspired by it.
’Jonestown’ later also became the title of my new album, says Sofia Talvik.
–I believe it’s important to believe in oneself and not just become a link in a chain. This song encourages people to evaluate their own abilities and the desicions they
make.

Sofia Talvik has been compared with great singers such as Joni Mitchell and has previously released two critically acclaimed albums, ’Blue Moon’ 2005 and ’Street of Dreams’ 2007. ’Jonestown’ is released in Sweden on her own label, Makaki Music.

Such a wonderful artit, you must discover her, her voice is so angelic.

Chrisr at CD Baby


Fresh from a powerful performance at 2008’s Lollapalooza festival, Sweden’s Sofia Talvik is now poised to conquer the States with the release of her devastatingly beautiful third album. It’s a record of staggering elegance, with the faintest trace of Scandinavian twee and youthful exuberance. (Timpani, crisp castanets, tambourine, all the toys and tricks to put some bounce in your step.) But those forces are tempered by a subtle melancholy that slowly drips down the lonely walls while you listen until, by the last song, you’re drowning in a warm, welcome bath of sad sounds, syrupy string sections, and round, resonant horns. She combines modal chord changes and beautiful 60’s euro-pop production with the gentle singing of a 70’s folk songstress. Her voice shines through the dark tones of dramatic, lush orchestrations and the haze of reverb like a ray of liquid luminescence. “Jonestown” will remind you of Goldfrapp, Pulp, Nico, Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, Belle & Sebastian, Aimee Mann, Tori Amos, Burt Bacharach (I could go on and on!), and yet it sounds entirely original and, more importantly, rings true.
