Georgie Reveals New Single ‘Hard Times’ ahead of UK tour with Jake Bugg

Mansfield troubadour Georgie has announced her new single ‘Hard Times’. Listen here. The brand new track is beautifully stripped back, with the sparse piano arrangement laying her rich, powerful vocals and deft songwriting bare. ‘Hard Times’ will be released alongside bonus acoustic track ‘This Ain’t Heaven’. Following the single release, Georgie will support Jake Bugg across all of his upcoming UK, US and European dates.

Not always destined for a life in music, Georgie had a promising career in professional football looming ahead of her, but the sudden discovery of a guitar and her uncle’s record collection whisked her off the pitch and into her bedroom to hone her musical craft. She quickly mastered the art of blagging her way into pubs underage in order to play open mic nights, and it wasn’t long before her rich soulful voice and honest, reflective songwriting had earned her local notoriety – after one pub crowd demanded a fourth set from her in a single evening, she failed the next day’s history GCSE exam due to the exhaustion. It wasn’t too long before her relentless graft paid off when her music caught the attention of local hero Jake Bugg, who took her with him on an intimate UK support tour.

Since then she has fulfilled support duties for stars ranging from Blossoms to Jack Savoretti, and was flown out to Virginia, USA to record her debut single ‘Company Of Thieves’ with the legendary Matthew E White and his Spacebomb house band. Blending her British Grit with such an accomplished American Soul band resulted in a truly spellbinding single that earned Georgie spots on a whole host of watch lists for 2017.

Georgie supports Jack Savoretti at London Indigo at the O2, and then joins Jake Bugg on his November tour dates.
