Georgia will perform with her long-standing quartet: pianist Kate Williams (Bobby Wellins, Stan Sulzmann, Pete Hurt Jazz Orchestra), bassist Oli Hayhurst (Pharoah Sanders, Julian Siegel, Ray Gelato) and drummer Dave Ohm (Ian Shaw, Benny Golson, Gregory Porter).
Multi award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, is one of Europe’s most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted artists. Her multi-lingual music references classic jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity. Earlier this year Georgia released her 8th album, ‘Quiet Is The Star’, co-written with Grammy-winning pianist/composer Alan Broadbent, alongside the publication of their book of 33 songs: cementing their reputation as “one of the most formidable songwriting partnerships of the 21st Century” (Jazz Views). Universally praised for its “exquisite yet potent series of reflections on the human condition” (Jazz Rag), it follows their seminal 2017 album, ‘Songbook’, which was launched at a sold out headline show at Ronnie Scott’s (“unequivocally, one of the gigs of the year” Jazzwise) with subsequent performances across Europe and the US, including famed New York clubs Dizzy’s, Kitano and Mezzrow.
Georgia’s previous release, ‘Finding Home' (2019) – co-produced with pianist/composer Kate Williams and her acclaimed Four Plus Three ensemble and featuring classical guitarist John Williams – was awarded Best Album in 2020 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Georgia and Kate’s co-written works, often highlighting current socio-political issues, demonstrate the power of song as a tool for communication and community. Georgia is also a respected producer of festival events with five annual editions of her now iconic ReVoice! Festival (2010 - 2014) and three editions of its satellite series ‘Hang’ (2017 - present), showcasing her ever evolving creativity, collaborative kudos and versatility.
