Sofia Talvik To Play Phoenix: EXCLUSIVE Interview!

So here's what is up: Sofia Talvik is playing in Phoenix on Jan. 10 @ 8 p.m. @ the Lost Leaf. I will be there. You should go, because she's a talented singer-songwriter, Swedish and a longtime UC supporter. On Jan. 12, she will be Obscura (Rips) playing at 9 p.m.

Anyway. Sofia has been traveling across the USA in a RV. This is her first Phoenix show. Some guy in Scottsdale was a douche to her. I hope he gets a kidney stone. I asked Sofia some questions, per usual, here were here responses! Thanks, Sofia!


UC: How is your tour going? 
S: It's great! It's a big adventure. Arizona is our 36th state on the tour!

damn!


UC: What was 2012 like for you? 
S: A lot of work, a lot of fun and a lot of learning new things. We do all bookings and promo ourselves so the tour is not just about playing music and partying. It's been really hard work, but we've had some amazing shows so it's paid off. And it's so exciting to have seen so much of the US. I've really developed as a live artist as well I think, I'll always have that with me!

UC: What do you have planned for 2013? 
S: We're doing the last part of the US tour now, going from the west coast back to Florida where it all started in December 2011. Our last show is in March and then we're moving the tour to Europe so that's really exciting. I've mainly toured here in the states so I'm not sure what to expect from Europe.

UC: How are you liking Arizona so far? 
S: Wow! It's so beautiful. I've been to the Grand Canyon before and unfortunately it was a bit out of our way this time so I didn't get to go, but we were up in Oak Creek and recorded an acoustic live video and that was so beautiful. And even though I was freezing my ass off up in Flagstaff it was fun to see some snow. I'm pretty glad it's nice and warm here in Phoenix though!

UC: What can fans expect for your Phoenix shows? 
S: Well I always try to do intimate shows where people can feel comfortable to come up and talk to me afterwards. So I hope everyone feels they will get to know me a little bit. Sometimes when you play in college cities, the crowd are just used to hearing someone play music, but I talk a lot in between the songs too. It's just who I am.

Sofia is playing at The Lost Leaf on January 10th 9pm and at Obscura (Rips) on January 12th 9pm. Check out her music and grab some free downloads here!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
