Shortly after X Factor Armenia came to an end, Srbuk began playing small local concerts together with her band. Focussing mainly on covers of American songbook standards, jazz, soul, R&B and contemporary pop, they quickly developed a strong following. Srbuk has become one of the most popular musical acts in Armenia, constantly taking part in music festivals, televised programs and public events. Over time, Srbuk began developing her own unique artistic style, drawing from her influences which encompassed a wide range of musical styles and heroes.
Her influences range from legendary and classic vocalists such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Ella Fitzgerald, to the soul and R&B influences of artists and performers like Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Michael Jackson. All of these influences and experiences have culminated into her debut single as a solo artist titled Yete Karogh Es which was on top of the Armenian charts for weeks.
Last year, Srbuk participated in The Voice: Ukraine where she reached the final and became one of the most popular contestants. Later that year, Srbuk released her single entitled Half a Goddess.

Lyrics of Walking Out

English (Original)

Who are you, what you really doWhen you have to fight the agonyThat’s aiming back at youWho are you Who you run to Depend, defend, hope onCan you function on your own
Are you from those Who will swallow downThe pain, disgrace The sadness (yeah)When the one You love so muchCan take your soulAnd break it
Wait for, oh wait forWhat I waited forWait for o wait forOn no I’m done~~
Walking out (uhuuu)Whatever I’ve builtI’m gonna burn downI’m walking out (uhuuu)You’re no more a king‘Cuz I’ was your crown
Walking out, walking outNo crying nowWalking out walking outNo begging nowWalking out (uhuu)At last, I feel proud I’m walking out
First you said, you would die for meBut~ in the end I was the oneBleeding all aloneFirst you saidYou kneeled, you sworeYou loved, you lived for meHow could you forget it all
Are you from thoseWho can take a loving heartAnd squeeze it out of loveThan prepare to slowly getNot loved but hated instead
You knew that my heart wasn’t smallBut somehow you came and filled it all
