With support from
Georgia and the Vintage Youth
Georgia is just 22 years of age! ..... 'Essex Girl with a big voice, big blonde hair and a cool little jazz band called The Vintage Youth'
...according to her BBC Introducing profile.
Her retro jazz/swing style of music is both vintage and fresh, hence the name of the band. It's contagious and subconsciously gets you tapping your feet. Georgia's influences range from Louis Prima, Ella and Billie and more recently, Paolo Nutini Amy and Paloma. BBC Introducing Essex have taken a keen interest in Georgia following her Brentwood Festival performance supporting Squeeze.
Georgia hasn't been on the music scene for very long since performing live at the NEC Birmingham (UK) and gaining 2nd place ahead of 9000 other hopefuls in July 2015. Her solo and acoustic rendition of a re-written Rodgers & Hammerstein piece My Favourite Things
during that final was awesome and inspiringly memorable.
Since then she has written her first album, released her debut Jazz based EP The Girl
, follow up Ska EP El Reco
(which featured Neville Staple, The Specials) and Jazz/Funk Soul inspired EP Go FUNK Yourself
, produced by Mo Pleasure (Earth Wind & Fire, Ray Charles Orchestra.
In November 2015 her debut single obtained her Westfield/Senheisser artist of the month. Georgia and her band now gig regularly all over the UK and are being played regularly on BBC Radio. (BBC Radio 2 BBC London, Essex, Kent, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and many more including BBC Wales.
Georgia's appearance on Vintage TV (Virgin 343, Sky 369, Freeview 82) for their Christmas sessions special Dec 2017 was truly memorable and a new compilation EP titled 'Remember Brick Lane' has attracted fans in Germany, Australia, Japan, New, Zealand and America with Glory
(a track from that EP) being nominated record of the week by BBC Cornwall.
