Free spirited songbird Georgia Thursting swung by town for the day, so we grabbed her for a quick workout session and caught up on the world of EPs, NYC and being a vet...
What have you been up to recently?
I’ve been busy recoding my EP and going on holidays! Recording takes a lot longer than you ever anticipate but it’s going well. I’m about 70% done, mainly vocals to go. I’ve been having lots of sessions with my producer and engineer Ben, discussing what works best for each song and messing around with different arrangements - there’s rumors of a triangle solo on the horizon for one of the tunes ;)
As it's our birthday this weekend, if you could have anything for yours what would it be?
For my birthday? Well I just had mine in June and I got what i wanted, a trip to NYC... It was amazing! I’m too lucky, I even got to see the Queen of Soul Aretha in concert. On the other hand, for Lexie’s birthday I would buy you a massive concert in a park in London somewhere with all the kick ass women in music performing on the bill. There’d be a dance stage too, and sports day games hahaha, maybe in a few years?
When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
There was brief phase of me wanting to be a vet when I was really little, but I soon realised I wouldn’t be able to handle the hands on side like surgery. I think I thought being a vet was about running around all day with cute animals haha. Since watching Titanic and falling in love with the theme tune at the age of 6, it’s all been about singing and music!
What does your future hold?
I like to think it will hold a successful music career… by successful I don’t mean a career like Rihanna's, but more along the lines of those like Laura Marling. A career that lasts, and with each record I want to grow as an artist and performer. I want a core fan base that loves not only my voice but the music I write too!
If you've yet to catch up with Georgia, check out her website georgiathursting.co.uk
Georgia worked out in an XS Mamie vest and Diana Shorts.
Part two coming soon...
While we've been kicking back and enjoying the sunshine, super girl Sarah has been battling it out at the English Nationals this weekend! Unfortunately, not only did she manage to catch some waves but also the chicken pox! Sending big love, a get well soon and a big congrats for being such a trouper! True Lexie Girl Grit!
She isn't Zooey Deschanel but she is mighty cool...

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.
