“"Georgia is a refreshing new voice who delivers with class and style... Modern and soulful, but absolutely rooted in the traditions of mainstream jazz.””
BBC Radio Scotland
Georgia Cecile has been tipped as 'One To Watch’ by BBC Music Introducing, has been a 'Best Vocalist' finalist two years running at the Scottish Jazz Awards (2017 & 2018) and was recently asked to showcase her original material for BBC Radio Scotland's 'Quay Sessions’. Although based primarily in Scotland she has performed all around the UK, captivating audiences with her engaging delivery of self-penned songs and arrangements of classic American Songbook standards. In her current collaboration with award-winning jazz pianist and composer Euan Stevenson, who is featured in the band this evening, the pair write and perform songs that are sophisticated yet highly accessible. They describe the music as "drawing inspiration from an era when composers such as Burt Bacharach, John Barry and Marvin Hamlisch enjoyed mainstream success, whilst wearing our jazz credentials proudly on our sleeves". Joining Georgia and Euan in this endeavour tonight will be Georgia's high quality band of Calum Gourlay-bass, Max Popp-drums and Sean Gibbs-trumpet. This promises to be an excellent night of music from some of the UK's most exciting young musicians.
