Tigersapp is the posthumous debut studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Szymon, released in November 2015 via Eloper Records.

Tigersapp was released three years after Szymon’s death and was nominated for a 2015 ARIA Award for Best Adult Contemporary Album and debuted at No. 21 on the ARIA Albums Chart.

Szymon started work on his album at age 18. Production was put on hold in 2010 due to mental health issues. After his death in 2012 Mark Holland from EMI continued working on mixing the songs with the final result being Tigersapp.

Music was Szymon Borzestowski's (pronounced Shi-Mon) life. The young Newcastle artist would happily lose himself in his bedroom studio for days.

Sadly, Szymon lost his life at just 23. Lovingly curated by family and friends, Tigersapp is the record he would have released, a glimpse into the vibrant world he hoped to share.

Szymon worked tirelessly throughout 2008 to record an album worth of songs, and was on the verge of signing a record deal with EMI at just 19. Tragically, the darkness of mental illness began to fall at the same time and it was decided his treatment had to come first. Nevertheless, he continued to write, even as his battles with depression became more debilitating. In the end, the world became unbearable and Szymon took his own life in December 2012.

Mixed in part by Rusty Santos (Animal Collective, Owen Pallett) and Ian Pritchett (Angus & Julia Stone), Tigersapp is a rich and touching testament to the talents of this singer-songwriter-composer. It's a cruel blow that Szymon wasn’t here to witness it, but it's a small comfort his life's work can be shared.

Check out the tracks: “Golden”; “Medusa”; “Katyusha” and “Floods”.

This LP record is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a digital download code, pressed in Australia.
