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.
