ReviewShine Wednesday: Natasha Borzilova

Many of you may remember Bering Strait, the Russian bluegrass band that gained some notoriety in the early part of the decade when they were nominated for a “Best County Music Instrumental Performance” Grammy.  A few months ago, I told you about seeing former Bering Strait member Lydia Salnikova give a solo performance at 3rd & Lindsley’s in Nashville.  Now I’m here to tell you about a new project from another former Bering Strait member, vocalist and guitarist Natasha Borzilova.

Borzilova’s new CD Balancing Act is her second solo effort and finds her straying from her bluegrass roots.  The eleven tracks here find Borzilova in more of an acoustic singer/songwriter space typically inhabited by artists such as Vienna Teng or Rachel Yamagata… only with a guitar instead of a piano.  The ten originals (The closing track, “Retchka” is a traditional Russian folk song.) presented here are both moody and melodic with Borzilova’s voice adding a haunting quality to many of the tracks.  Speaking of haunting… Here is the album opening “Ghost.”

    mmmmmm….someone ghosted Natasha's song, making a mess of this playlist….

  2. No… I just remove links to the songs after a month or two so they aren't up here forever.

    Natasha's song was removed, so the player moves to the next song on the page.
