Out of My Hands recieves favorable review on German music site

July 18, 2012

Natasha’s  new album “Out of My Hands” received a very nice review in the popular German music website Country Jukebox. Below the German review we have placed a google translation of the review into English. While not a perfect translation, it will give you a good idea of what the review says.  Our thanks to editor Max Achatz for always being so supportive of Natasha’s music on his site and in Germany and bringing attention to her music in Europe.



Out Of My Hands, the new third solo album NATASHA BORZILOVA, former lead singer of the short-lived Russian band Bering Strait, is full of songs that go really under the skin. And here you can hear the emotion and intention of a singer and songwriter, who arrives at the moment. Minimal instrumentation and a sweet, melancholy vocals are fully sufficient for their dense, extremely haunting songs, which have grown up with many other content and also about hope, family, love, loss and transport. All may feel yourself to appreciate the true folk and singer / songwriter Art.

Direct Current features Natasha!

May 30, 2012 

Thanks to Direct Current for featuring Natasha along with the release of “Out of My Hands.” Here is a little bit about the website which is seen by many music lovers and radio folks: (see Natasha’s feature by clicking here)

Direct Current is all about music…good music and great music. This site works with artists, labels and distribution companies to bring the latest news, information, release dates and more about artists creating interesting, individual and eclectic music.Our focus is primarily on artists that we think are more than the “flavor of the month”. Some would call it “adult music” but we know this isn’t an “age” thing, it’s about perception, individual taste and appreciation.
We lean on adult pop, rock, singer/songwriters, folk, Americana, alt-country, adult alternative, soul, world music, crossover jazz and simply those artists that make us go “hmmm.” We’re constantly scouring an extensive array of sources for news and information about artists we care about — and hope that you’ll discover and appreciate the music we’re bringing to you.
You won’t find much hip-hop, hard rock, emo, metal, screamo, teen pop, classical, oldies, geezer rock, dance music, Christian, Latin, hard core or a lot of other categories. Not because we don’t respect what these genres bring to the big picture…we just want to keep our vision on those artists that we like to listen to. It’s pretty much as simple as that.
