Mexican singer, songwriter and vocal coach Marcela Bovio forms a new project called Dark Horse White Horse. Joining her on the journey are guitarist Jord Otto and bassist Ruben Wijga.

According to Dark Horse White Horse Facebook page description, a first-class sympho-tech metal has been in the making.

“Right now we’re in the middle of recording an EP, comprised of five songs,” unveiled Marcela in her latest newsletter update, adding that “the amazing Ariën van Weesenbeek [Epica, MaYaN] recorded some amazing drum parts for it.” 

The recordings are being held at Sandlane Recording Facilities with renowned producer Joost van den Broek. “Jord just finished recording rhythm guitars, and bass recordings will start very soon,” says Bovio.

The trio has recently done a photo session with French photographer Emilie Garcin who has previously worked with Marcela on several occasions. We’ll get to see the results of their latest team effort soon. More details on DHWH to follow.
