Sofia Talvik of Sweden played one of her last U.S. tour shows March 14 in Winnsboro, Texas, before COVID-19 brought an end to gatherings for the foreseeable future.
"We had arrived early that day in Winnsboro and it all seemed so peaceful compared to the headlines that was shouting at me every time I opened my phone," she says. "In Winnsboro the birds were singing and the trees were full of blossoms. The air was sweet and you would never know what was going on in the rest of the world."
She wrote a song about her experience of being there and what's going on all around the world now.
"I wrote the song without prejudice or judgment. It is merely a reflection of the situation I have found myself in, being on tour in a different country, far away from my family, watching news about people hoarding toilet paper and food like there is no tomorrow."
It is her small testament to the times, she says. Here are the lyrics below and to listen and learn more about her go HERE.
