With vocal stylings reminiscent of jazz classics, Blair Borax delivers a unique blend of unapologetic songwriting that fearlessly tackles the taboo and irresistibly catchy pop melodies that stay with you for days. She conjures a vocal charm somewhere in between Regina Spektor and Cat Clyde, wordsmithing inspired by folk songwriting greats like John Prine and Paul Simon, and tender timely vulnerability akin to Haley Heynderickx and Big Thief’s Adrienne Lenker.
Following the success of her debut album "Keep Walking" in June 2022, Blair is poised to unveil her sophomore record, "Tender Lately" in February 2024. This upcoming collection of songs serves as a poignant map of the human experience, gently weaving the listener through intimate personal narratives and universal human truths of love, death, money, purpose, and womanhood. Tender Lately leaves the listener with gentle reminders to quiet the inner critic, find joy in small things, and embrace the precious brevity of our time on Earth. With more sophisticated songwriting, a newfound confidence in fingerpicking guitar, and a move towards honest acoustic folk production, Tender Lately is Borax’s most compelling work to date.
“With rich lyrics and a voice like molasses,” poet Juniper Klatt says, “Blair Borax makes music that moves you to the heart of being human, offers you a warm cup of tea, and invites you to stay a while.”
