Her dark voice and her passion are what makes her music different from all the rest. Her radical emotionalism and the abyss-deep soul that she brings to her songs seem to turn her innermost self inside out. She is 24 years old, but you perceive that she has already lived a whole life: KOVACS!

Her raw style and her dark voice lead to comparisons with Portishead or Amy Winehouse. “This gloomy sound results from my voice and the arrangements, but also from the fact that we compose everything in a minor key. I like these fluctuations of moods, my music has soul.” Not surprising since her influences are mainly from the past. “I listen to lots of Billie Holiday, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington…Tina Turner and Janis Joplin are also favourites of mine. Female singers with a personality, who really lived or live. All of their emotions can be heard in their voices, that always attracted me.”

Now she will be on the TEDDY Stage at the Ceremony on the 19th of February and we are excited and looking forward to see her!
