About

Amsterdam-based Hungarian indie singer/songwriter Borka Balogh emerged on the music scene at the age of 17, when her debut single Let This Be The Last Song was picked up by a Hungarian radio station. Endowed with a soft and dreamy voice and with a gift for building enchanting vocal and guitar melodies inspired by traditional and indie folk, Borka often finds herself compared favorably to artists such as AURORA, Alice Phoebe Lou, Laura Marling and Lisa Hannigan. Her main purpose as an artist is to undress everything that isolates people from one another and make an universal bond between those who can decode her message hidden in her lyrics. By implementing stories and momentary impressions of her personal experience into her lyrics, she builds a bridge for the audience who can experience what it feels like to be in her shoes and eventually relate to one another.

Choosing the rocky road and moving away from the world of popular music, she moved headquarters and continued to make music as an independent musician in the Netherlands where she soon began to create her unique sound and to work with her current band: Remy de Kok (NL) on solo guitar, Yaresh Soekhlal (NL) on bass, Dany Aguirre Broca (NL/MX) on drums and Marieke Berkvens (NL) on keys joined Borka in the creation of her debut album Traces Of You which was released on the 4th of February 2018. Embracing the positive feedback and a series of concerts in her hometown, Borka did not stop creating ever since: in May 2018 she announced that a new album is on the way which will be dedicated to her roots and which will be expected in May 2019.

In the meantime, she was signed to Netherlands-based artist agency For The Road and she has been dropping bits and pieces of her next material onto the market: a promising single with a fresh and more upbeat sound GONE was released in late-June.

Borka was recently spotted by Sofar Sounds and she was invited to perform in Amsterdam, where she gave a little more insight into her enchanting palette including Unsaid Words and Nostalgia, new songs to be released into the world in the fall of 2018.
