Project description - 'As a scout for EMI, Mark Holland had to deal with the dozens of unsolicited demos that arrived at the company’s offices every week. He dutifully listened to them all, and every one inevitably received a polite thanks-but-no-thanks form letter. Not this time. What Holland heard coming out of his speakers made him rush over to Craig Hawker, EMI’s head of A&R. Both men stood transfixed by the beautiful, ethereal music. They had no idea who or what Szymon was. All that they knew was the music was amazing.
On that day in late 2008, Szymon Borzestowski was 19 years old. Sadly, he would not live much beyond his 23rd birthday. Szymon took his life in December 2012.
Now, nearly three years after his passing, an album of Szymon’s music is being released and the world will at last be able to hear the artistry that captivated Holland and Hawker.
Though the story behind Tigersapp is a tragic one, the music on the album is positive and life-affirming. A seductive blend of folk, pop and electronica, each of Tigersapp’s 12 songs has a delicate precision that envelops the listener and draws them into a world of shimmering beauty. It’s hard to believe, but these intricate, perfectly formed songs are the first Szymon ever wrote. In the space of two years, entirely on his own, he taught himself to play guitar, write songs and record them. Tigersapp is the product of a musician touched by genius. '
