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".
Introducing Lexie's first sponsored team of inspirational women the Kernow Rollers.
So when we were approached by Donna of the Kernow Rollers last year to sponsor her kick ass team of female players we said no.
Thing was we didn’t actually have any kit yet. So as soon as we got some in we sent a heap down to Donna and her girls to test out.
The Kernow Rollers are a flat track roller derby team, playing the fast-paced, full-contact, high adrenaline sport in Cornwall.
Founded in 2011 as an inclusive and empowering non-profit sporting organization, the league trains several times a week on & off skates and they welcome anyone regardless of their shape, size or ability.
These girls are as tough as they come and we love their inclusive mindset, opening up sport to all women, we are proud to provide their kit and can't wait to see their team grow and conquer!
