Covering tour, emoji’s and of course, Glastonbury, we caught up with singer song writer; Georgie.
The Nottingham based singer is bringing her dusk tinged vocals all over the UK, after landing herself support slots with the likes of Jake Bugg and Blossoms.
With her first single Company Of Thieves showing off just a teaser of what she’s got in store, be sure to latch on. So dive right in and read below.
So you’re on tour with Jake Bugg at the moment, how’s it all going so far?
Georgie: Great! We’re two nights in and it’s been really fun so far – got about sixteen shows to do in total so going to be pretty knackered by the end of it all
A bit of a more basic question, but how did you get into music and decide it was something you wanted to pursue as a career?
Georgie: I guess I was brought up in a house where music was always playing and my mum introduced me to a lot of records, that kind of started me off. Then I just picked up the guitar when I was about fourteen!
You’ve had your fair share of shows this year, so what emoji would you say best describes you after a gig?
Georgie: Oooh, maybe one of the monkey ones like where they’re covering they’re ears/eyes!
Sort of like “aah what just happened?!”
Georgie: Ha exactly! But in a good way of course, with all the adrenaline rushing through you you kind of can’t be excited after – if that makes sense!
I saw a quote saying you “might just be this generations next Stevie Nicks” which is pretty decent! How’s that for you?
Georgie: Ha, I’ll take it! Stevie Nicks is a legend and definitely one of my heros so it’s insane to think someone would say that about me. They’re some pretty massive shoes to fill though and I don’t think it’s actually possible to have another Stevie Nicks, but still, I’ll take it!
Who would you say you take influence from when writing? Would it be from the likes of Fleetwood Mac?
Georgie: Yeah! I mean I listen to a lot of music, people like Stevie Nicks, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin and a lot of strong females are definitely inspiring to me – they’re the people I really look up to! But I guess when I’m writing a song I’d be inspired by anybody really! Could be somebody walking down the street or my mum or a friend – but yeah!
So what can you tell us about your latest track Company Of Thieves?
Georgie: Well the reception for it’s been great, not what I expected! And a lot of fun to record also because we were out in Virginia and got to work with some amazing people – so wicked yeah!
How was it to film the video for it? A lot of angry people around you!
Georgie: Ha! Very true, that is the affect I had on everyone – just pissing them all off really! No I’m just kidding, it was a long day but so much fun. It was the first thing I’d ever done which was like that and I enjoyed it a lot, everyone working on it was just amazing!
You played Glastonbury earlier this year and had BBC Radio 1 mark you as an act to watch for the weekend. First off, how was Glastonbury?
Georgie: Incredible! It was the first time I’d ever been and it was a lot to take in but so good
And how does it feel to have that sort of support from Radio 1? Especially paired up with Glastonbury – pretty massive weekend!
Georgie: Completely yeah! They’re really respectful and so good at just picking up new music all the time, one of the many great things they do I guess! But yeah it was really nice to have that happen
Speaking of festivals, what would you say has been the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen at one?
Georgie: Ha! I actually don’t think I can say, there is one which is just terrible… Okay, so this guy in front of everybody just pulled his pants down and showed everything. But the weirdest thing was that I was also with my mum and one of her friends so it got pretty awkward
Ha! So after this tours wrapped up, what have you got planned next?
Georgie: Yeah after this tour we’re back on the road with Blossoms in November and December which will be good! Then just finishing the album pretty soon, sometime next year! Not too sure but I’m excited
Lastly, would you rather have a giraffe sized neck or T-Rex sized arms?
Georgie: I would have to go giraffe neck! I’m quite short so that would be amazing for me
