"Her songs are refreshing and she looks like she loves what she does...certainly one to watch!" Alan Thompson, BBC Radio Wales
Rosy-cheeked singer/songwriter Georgia Paterson is on a mission to get people singing along! The lead track on her new EP ‘Not For Me (Na Na Na Nah)’ has that classic sing-along vibe, and “audiences have been super-quick to pick up the hook ever since I first played the song live” says the Cardiff-born, Valleys resident. Georgia worked with producer Charlie Francis (REM, The Noisettes) on the new EP, which perfectly showcases her acoustic pop/folk sound. Recently featured as ‘Welsh Artist of the Week’ on BBC Radio Wales, her debut single was produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers) with Catatonia’s Aled Richards on drums.
Doctor, clinical psychologist, and research scientist are just some of the career paths Georgia started down before finally swapping the pipettes for plectrums and making music her full-time occupation. Her nickname in the lab was ‘dry eyes’ due to her emotional outbursts and it is this passion that drives her songwriting. Raised on a diet of Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and The Byrds, her love of the acoustic guitar came at a young age. She discovered the Indigo Girls in 2000 and their music remains a permanent fixture. “I was thrilled when a reviewer recently said I reminded him of KT Tunstall, I secretly wanted to be KT Tunstall or at least be with KT Tunstall, one of the two anyway!”
