This fast rising singer-songwriter (just 19) from the Scottish Borders has just launched her brand new EP (Folk Rag Records) to a packed Jazz Bar in Edinburgh in January.
‘bound for bigger and better things’ and ‘a huskily mature sound with a tone and personality pitched somewhere between folk and rock' review by The Scotsman at her EP launch which also matched her to Beth Orton.
‘already a star in the making’ Celtic Connections (and invited back again this year)
A mix of folk, acoustic, indie, alternative and pop, she has 'unique and strikingly poetic lyrics, coupled with arresting vocals and tunes which belie her years’
Steve Tulipana, booker at The Record Bar, Kansas City
October 2013 found her shortlisted as one of five finalists in Radio Forth One's One to Watch.
Georgia insisted on reading poems at bedtime as a child instead of storybooks. The usual piano lessons at 7 led to guitar at 12 and then to song writing which grew out of her love of poetry. The beautiful surroundings of the Scottish Borders where she grew up have been a strong influence and are reflected in her writing. Perfectly described by a fan after her EP launch gig…..
‘What I like is the intelligence and poetry of her lyrics and the way they're so perfectly matched by the melodies - it's nice that the arrangements add energy but don't swamp the sensitive quality of the songs.’
EP info: Music and lyrics by Georgia Gordon. Never Seen the Sun and Insane arranged and produced by Dave Little and Mike Small of Diminutive Productions. Recorded and mixed at Sound Station Studio, Galashiels. www.soundstation.co.uk We Never Won and Little Flame produced by Isaac Webb.
