Hot Lesbian With Guitar Needs Your Help to Get Famous!


If you sometimes wish that Adam Levine was a 25 year-old hip lesbian, then you will probably love Whitney Borisenok. Actually, if you like any mellow, poppy guitar-type music you’ll love Whitney Borisenok. Let’s all agree that you’re probably going to love Whitney Borisenok.


Borisenok is an undiscovered (so far) singer/songwriter from Syracuse, NY who’s got big musical talent and the Youtube Channel to prove it.

Did I mention how cute she is?


But here’s the thing, as awesome as she is, Borisenok still isn’t serenading us on the radio. So I guess we’re just going to have to listen to her one EP all by ourselves alone in our rooms… or will we? We won’t! Borisenok is currently a frontrunner in a contest to open for Tyrone Wells on his new tour. Guys, Tyrone Wells. Contestants submitted covers of Tyrone Wells’s song “Freedom,” and five winners will be chosen from the 10 videos with the most views and comments.


How do you help this adorable lezzie in need? For starters, all you have to do is watch her video performance of “Freedom.” Better yet, comment on the video and scream her praises on your Facebook and Twitter accounts!

You can check out Borisenok’s debut EP “Heart on Sleeve” on Myspace or buy it on Amazon or iTunes. You can also just stalk her face and tell her how much you love her on her Facebook.

  1. One of my really good friends played drums on her new EP and has played a few shows with her on the East Coast. She’s pretty awesome. Plus, she’s from Syracuse, and very, very few good things come from Syracuse, so y’all should hop on this one.

    (Maybe literally. Only if it’s consensual).

  2. I will definitely watch her video! Or better yet, I’ll watch it ten times, comment, and force my friends to do the same:D I started going through her stuff right now and I gotta say I love it and I love helping up and coming talented artist get known:D

  3. Tyrone Wells is such a real dude. I had my first philly cheesesteak with him, his wife (and little dog), and band after one of his gigs in Philly. Chillest, most humble man you ever could meet.

    I hope she gets to open for him!!!

    • “I’m pretty sure the line “Hot lesbian with guitar needs you help” could convince me to do ANYTHING.”

      These were my same feelings. I read the title and literally said aloud “Okay!” before I read anything else.

  4. she’s great, but it’s sounds exactly like music i’ve heard a million times from all the other singer-songwriters out there.
    is it too music to ask for some originality and voice?

    but who’s to say. maybe i’m just a snobby composer.
