Georgia kicked off her professional singing career fronting Agent Provocateur’s Dirty Stop Out supergroup, with The Clash’s Mick Jones, Bobby Gillespie and AP’s Joe Corre, playing in the couture meets punk show-band in venues including Camden’s Koko, Vienna’s Life Ball and Berlin Fashion Week.
Since then, she has been busy honing her craft, taking the old jazz, blues and soul influences she grew up with, and combining them with modern production techniques and sounds to create a fresh, contemporary sound. The results were singles ‘Invisible Enemy’ and Repeat & Play’. Latest single ‘Curves’ was released in early 2021, after a bumpy ride as an independent artist through the pandemic stricken 2020. An ode to being comfortable in one’s own skin and leaning to love yourself, the track was released on International Women’s Day, as an antidote to the mental health issues and body dysmorphia suffered by countless young women.
Previous ventures of Georgia’s have included Sofar Sounds, supporting Omar at Manchester’s Band on The Wall and innovative projects like Punchdrunk’s production of The Drowned Man – an immersive theatrical show that saw attendance from Adele, Prince Harry, Madonna, to Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul. She has also collaborated with numerous top-drawer producers, including Guy Chambers in the past.
With more new music due to be released soon, 2021 is lining up to be Georgia’s year.
