LIZZ’S TEAM PICK
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.
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).
But almost every time something semi-good comes semi out of Syracuse they put it in the local paper.
Haha. True. Oh Post Standard, you and your front page stories about the origin of Thousand Island dressing.
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
This was a thing I liked. Plus, dope hoodie alert.
She is incredible!! Opening for Tyrone Wells would be huuuuuge- check out her Facebook and YouTube pages- she’s got so much more good stuff!!
If anyone is interested in another “hot lesbian with guitar that needs help getting famous”, check out my friend Connor. She’s amazing!
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 LIKE COFFEE AND LESBIANS AND MUSIC!!!
Me too omg what are you doing later let’s get married.
I am open to this suggestion.
I’m pretty sure the line “Hot lesbian with guitar needs you help” could convince me to do ANYTHING.
Not that I need much convincing in this case. Awesome video!
“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.
I wanna help her get famous and ask her to play at a fundraiser in Massachusetts…but I can’t find a contact e-mail?? Help a grrl out?!
This is her Facebook music page.
Contact her there.
I actually don’t have Facebook
If you post your email, I can make sure she gets it. I, myself, don’t feel comfortable giving her email away. But I’m sure she would LOVE to help out with an LGBT fundraiser and will definitely get in touch!
She did reach out to me! Thanks!! :)
Really enjoyed that cover of Freedom. Plus her EP is solid. Very nice team pick, Lizz!
You can also get her EP via Autostraddle’s Amazon affiliate link. Everybody wins!
There is no way for me to +1 your comment the number of times I want to.
She’s so good! spreading the world all over coloRADo WhitB.
Good friend I met while I spent some time in Med school in Burlington jammin with her!
Another hott lesbian…mmmm…
Does anyone know if Whitney is accepting marriage proposals? I don’t exactly believe in marriage but for a hot lesbian with a guitar and a hoodie I can make an exception.
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.
Check out “organic lauren” on ITUNES
Hi, Jen-I’m Lauren.
Definitely really supportive of her..she is very deserving of this and seems to work very hard!! Nice job whit keep up the good work and I love listening :)
