She had The Voice judges on tenterhooks when she performed her blind audition for the hit TV show last year. Progressively making her mark on the gig and festival scene, we managed to nab singer-songwriter Georgia Thursting just before she hits the big time.
Along with tales of sex and seduction, Georgia’s rich soulful voice and jazz influences sound well beyond her twenty years. It something that comes naturally.
“I get this feeling when I’m inspired, I just have to write. I never sit down to try force it. When I’m not in the mood it doesn’t happen - I get frustrated with myself.”
Performing since the age of 12 and taking the stage at Ronnie Scotts and Live at Leeds Festival, Georgia is humble but not afraid to dream and aim high. Perhaps it’s something to do with her fitness fanatic and personal trainer dad who she’s been hitting the boxing studio with?
“I’ve only started but I enjoy it a lot more than the gym. We box, listen to mixes from DJs I’ve seen, and incorporate circuits into our workouts. Who knew skipping could be so tiring!”
Aside from boxing and graduating from Leeds College of Music, the next stop on-route to stardom is finishing and releasing her EP.
“There is so much to think about and do in preparation. My band, producer and I have put so much time and effort into sounding as tight as we can and creating something exciting that I can’t wait to get the ball rolling and get people listening.”
With her rockabilly style, Georgia chooses the Veronica Short as her favorite piece of the Icon collection.
“I used to look at sports clothing and think it looked ridiculous a lot of the time but these shorts, and the whole Lexie range is so fashionable and practical. The shorts design is great and I love the silver panel detail".
