All Music Guide:
Swedish singer/songwriter Sofia Talvik relocated from the small West Coast island of her birth to Stockholm at the age of 18 to pursue a career in music. After the release of her sparse debut EP, Talvik began writing her first full-length, rehearsing it over and over again with her band, the Tallboys. The resulting Blue Moon, recorded in just under 40 hours of basically live sessions in the studio, was released in 2005 to rave reviews in her native Sweden. In 2007 Talvik released Street of Dreams on her own Makaki Music label. The album featured the single "It's Just Love," a duet with Suede guitarist Bernard Butler.
