Tina Boonstra Releases Acoustic Version of 'What Is The Rush?'

Jul 14 2020

Tina Boonstra released a beautiful acoustic version of her latest single 'What Is The Rush' on 10th July 2020 through 7Core Music. This acoustic version was recorded at home during the Covid-19 lockdown.

"Over the last few months, we’ve all had to deal with grief and disappointment in some measure. We've all had to try to figure out a way to process what’s been happening and that’s been so hard.

Working on this version of What is the rush? has been a really great experience for me. It's been so good to come together with friends and make something special in this strange and uncertain time.

I recorded the vocals on my own, in my bathroom, and worked with producer and pianist Barnabas Shaw to complete the track. I was grateful to have cellist and co-founder of the London Film Music Orchestra, Ivelina Dusheva-Martial, feature on this song and I’m really excited to share it now."

'What Is The rush?' is the second song from Tina's latest EP, her next single 'Talk it Over' will be released on the 24th of July.

As a songwriter in a missionary family, Tina expected her songs to find their home in the church halls she grew up in. But it wasn’t until she began performing on the London open mic circuit that she cut her teeth as a performer and honed her craft into a treasure trove of songs with a depth and emotional intensity reminiscent of PJ Harvey, Wolf Alice and John Mark McMillan.

Featured on Spotify's New Music Friday and Mellow Pop playlists, BBC Introducing London, Hoxton Radio and Sounds Magazine, her last EP is described as ‘a collection of moving, honest, brave songs that will school its listeners in empathy and introspection.’ (Get In Her Ears)
