MusicTAP is very pleased to present to you this brand new track from singer-songwriter Sofia Talvik, “Poem At Year’s End”.  Following Ms. Talvik’s previous holiday album, When Winter Comes, is this warm, thoughtful, emotional piece that fits the tenor and vibe of the season.

As Sofia Talvik puts it herself, “I asked my fans on Facebook what they thought I should write about this year, and many wanted something political. To be honest, that made me feel exhausted. There has been so much politics, and so many fights the last few years, that the last thing I wanted to do was to write a political Christmas song. So instead, I decided to write something that everyone could listen to and enjoy with an open heart, and a calm mind. This is nothing more than a poem about the end of the year, and that is why I called it “Poem At Year’s End”. The beautiful cello harmonies by David Floer, and soaring horns by Tim Fleming makes you think about 60’s folk songs, like the tunes of Nick Drake.”

After listening to this song, you completely understand the direction she took it and she succeeded on every level.  So please – listen and let it move you.

This track is now available as of Tuesday, December 4th, 2018.
