May 12, 2023

Georgia G is a 22 year old singer/songwriter from Malahide, Dublin. Georgia has been writing songs for as long as she can remember, with inspiration from Roisin Murphy, Soda Blonde, Sheryl Crowe, CMAT and Sister Sledge.

Being nominated for ‘Most promising of the year’ by Hot Press magazine music awards this year, Georgia G’s upcoming single ‘Johnny Bravo’ will be released on May 12th, followed by her single launch in Whelan’s upstairs on May13th. This song features some amazing Irish musicians including Jake Curran on guitar, Jamie Burke on second guitar, Derek ‘doc ‘O’Connor on saxophone, Paul Flood on bass and Ben Cooper on drums. It was recorded and produced by Stuart Gray in jealous town studios and mastered by Billy Farrell. The track is infused with pop, soul, blues and personality. Georgia is creating a brand-new sound for the world to enjoy while travelling back in time and ‘channelling her inner Ricky Lee Jones.

“Johnny Bravo is a reference to a person who has a hold on you despite the fact that their morals are questionable and every fibre of your being wants to hate them. The song combines soul, pop, and personality. When I was writing it, I imagined myself sitting on the beach with a fruity cocktail in my hand. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have worked with such talented musicians on this song, and grateful the sound I had for the track in my head has been brought to life. I’ve always admired Sister Sledge and Donna Summer’s powerful vocal lines so I would say they have influenced the lead vocal big time!”

Georgia G released her track ‘Are You Single?’ Back in November, which was chosen as RTE2 FM’s track of the week and described as ‘a modern pop gem with retro influences from the 1970’s in the style of Nile Rogers’.
