Performing her upbeat soulful interpretations of everything from pop, and RnB to rock and country classics with a focus on crowd interaction

'Armed with a voice that ranges from soft and sweet to a southern soul rasp all in the same verse' - The Leeds Debacle (2013)'. Unique... Performing her upbeat soulful interpretations of everything from Pop and RnB/Garage to Indie Rock and Country classics, Georgia is guaranteed to make you feel good! With her unique vocal stylings and use of her vocal harmony and loop pedal, she really makes popular songs her own and loves to keep audiences guessing. Past gig highlights have included leading a Beatle Singalong during a Manchester couples wedding breakfast (they were a fun bunch!). As well as working on the Carribbean Princess ship as her Cajon Duo where they worked with a Californian couple to orchestrate a beautiful wedding proposal during their show. Singalongs? Check. Fancy a dance? Check... Georgia particularly enjoys performing with a focus on crowd interaction, leaving audiences feeling energised, positive and always wanting more when the last set is over. If something low key is more your style, that's also not a problem, Georgia has years of experience providing musical ambience at restaurants, 5* hotels and wedding receptions. Versatile... Georgia has years of experience both entertaining large crowds and performing in more intimate settings. Past performances have included the main stage of The Gibraltar Music Festival and Live At Leeds 2012 as well as, most notably, performing to Tom Jones, Jessie J, Will.I.Am and Danny O'Donaghue on BBC's The Voice. Not a one trick pony, her vocal abilities see her performing every style thrown at her, not forgetting song requests on the day. Special requests.. A multi instrumentalist, Georgia is able to add an extra sparkle to your wedding day or private event by playing songs acoustically on guitar or, if you fancy something a little different, she can play your chosen song on the piano (see video of 'You got the love'). Georgia is also committed to ensuring clients have as much or as little control as they'd like over her set list on the day. Be it writing your own set list from her extensive song list, or, leaving it up to Georgia to choose! It's up to you. Fancy a little more rhythm or even another guitarist? Georgia can play in various set ups such as solo, duo, trio and even full 5 piece band.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

That is no problem, feel free to let me know and if I am able to change my set times I will! I always try to be flexible so if the change of time doesn't affect another booking we will be able to amend.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes!

How much time do you need to set up?

30 minutes but I always arrive 1 hour before start time to be sure.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I have a song list of near 500 songs, you can highlight your favorites from it to create sets no problem.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I do. The only thing I do not own is lighting, however this can be hired for an extra cost.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes I can, I can learn up to 3 free of charge however any extra will incur a small fee.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love my ability to adapt to the needs of the audience or venue. If what you are looking for is someone to get the party started, I have no qualms at getting people involved with crowd interaction and getting them up to dance. At the same time, if you're booking a musician to create a chilled out ambience in the room I am also able to do this.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at various festivals including Live At Leeds, The Gibraltar Music Festival and Beacons. Venues I have performed at include Leeds College of Music, The Hideaway Jazz Club and Ronnie Scotts.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan, Laura Marling and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I supported Mica Paris at The Hideaway Jazz Club in Streatham, London. I also appeared on UK's The Voice in front of Jessie J, Tom Jones, Danny from The Script and Will I Am.

Georgia was absolutely outstanding. I'd watched her videos a few times and I could see she was talented so I was already excited to have her play at her wedding - but her vibe is even more fantastic in person, vids don't do it justice! Georgia was super helpful, very responsive and totally flexible from the beginning. She has so many songs to choose from and she let us select exactly what we wanted. We were specific with timings and she was willing to work around whatever we wanted. When the set was almost concluded on the day, a couple of our guests were enjoying the performance so much they said they'd personally pay for her to stay if they had to! Another few said they wanted her at their weddings. I can't blame them! Georgia played for us during our entrance and the wedding breakfast and since it was a served 3 course meal, there were short breaks between courses and Georgia made it flow beautifully and enhanced the vibe of our wedding totally. We loved the day so much that we are planning an anniversary party. If we have one, we will get Georgia involved for sure. On top of all of this, she was timely, professional and so lovely and easy to work with. Don't hesitate to book her. Worth every penny, I would recommend her to anyone!

'Oh my Duo' were fantastic. We booked them for a office opening and they really got involved and everyone loved them. From start to finish they were so professional and helpful. Will definitely use them again.

Georgia played at our wedding last week in the Yorkshire Dales and was absolutely fantastic! Leading up to the day, she was so well organised, keeping in regular contact and she even let us choose songs from her repertoire! She really got the style and mood we were after, playing more casual songs in the garden during the afternoon, then picking up the tempo for the evening playing with Louis on the cajon. We would fully recommend her and are planning to go watch more gigs of hers in Leeds with our friends. Thanks again, Georgia!

When we booked Georgia (oh my duo) for our wedding, we knew for sure that her vocal was stunning and she was smily and polite; exactly the type of person we wanted to perform at our wedding. Throughout the whole booking process she was so easy to contact and all of our questions where answered promptly (even though she was at the time performing on a cruise ship and no doubt very busy.) We booked her for 2 sets in the evening and closer to the wedding we also booked a set for late afternoon whilst everyone was relaxing on the patio with tea/ coffee etc. The afternoon set was just gorgeous, a lovely chilled out vibe- just what we wanted. On to the evening sets- I have to admit a small part of me had reservations about this part, having mostly witnessed the more chilled out aspect to Georgia’s performances I though that people would not really be up dancing or waiting for the Dj to come back on to get on the dance floor. When it came to it it was almost the opposite. They had the dancefloor full for pretty much the entirety of their performances and the interaction with the guests was brilliant. We had the honour of Georgia singing our first dance for us- again I feel like this can be risky if it is a song that is so special to you both. Her version of iris was just stunning, absolutely beautiful. So much so that we actually prefer it to the original. Throughout our day certain people really went out of their way to make things special for us and Georgia and dan were certainly 2 of those. We cannot thank you both enough and if anyone reading this is thinking about booking- just do it, it will be one of the best decisions you ever make
