Tina Boonstra

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 latest EP is described as ‘a collection of moving, honest, brave songs that will school its listeners in empathy and introspection.’ (Get In Her Ears).

After clocking up over a million Spotify streams, 2019 saw Tina embark on her first UK headline tour and make appearances at UK festivals including ‘The Big Festival’, ‘Big Church Day Out’ and ‘The Great Escape’, as well as play support slots to Zach Winters, Joshua Luke Smith and Danny O’Callaghan.

Heart, Teeth, Hands was released on 27 September and is the final song in the ‘Underrated Animals.’ She’s currently working on a new EP.

‘A punchy and infectious pop package, tied neatly with her distinct and lavish vocals as the bow on top.’ – Louise Dodgson, Unsigned Guide

‘The London based artist is an arch manipulator of minimalist music to create emotional and stirring music that speaks right to your soul.’ – Cross Rhythms

‘It’s powerful stuff…Tina’s set has been spectacular. A real revelation and another addition to our iPod.’ – Peter Goodbody – Getintothis Liverpool
