Folk-pop singer-songwriter Georgia Paterson has just released her debut EP. The EP entitledHear Your Voice, has Georgia looking to make an impact on the back of the superb reputation she has already built on the live music scene in South Wales.
Hear Your Voicewas produced by Charlie Francis (REM, TheNoisettes). Georgia is no stranger to working with renowned musicians - her debut singleThought it Might be Youbeing produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Mel C) and with Catatonia'sAledRichards on drums.
She could have beena doctor, a clinical psychologist or a scientist – but as it is, Georgia has found her home making her own brand of folk-pop, laced with the fearlessness and confidence of someone who knows just who they are. Georgia is Welsh and wears her heart on her sleeve - much to the benefit of her music, with a raw lyrical honesty lying behind the super ear-worm melodies.
This former BBC Radio WalesWelsh Artist of the Week’s musical influences are both borrowed and found. Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel were takenfrom the older brother who taught herherfirst chords. Jewel and The Cranberries, she grabbed onto in her youth and hasn’t let go since. And later discoveries the Indigo Girls and KT Tunstall- the latter Georgia wasn’t sure if she wanted to be her or be with her!
"Georgia Paterson merges catchy hook laden nuggets with lyrics that draw you in and make you want to know more. Her songs are refreshing and she looks like she loves what she does...certainly one to watch." - Alan Thompson - BBC Radio Wales
