"Welcome to Georgia" is an introductory EP featuring four tracks from 25-year-old multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter Georgia Barnes. Her hotly tipped eponymous debut album is coming out August 7 on Domino.
Born and raised in north west London, the last few years have seen Georgia steadily establish herself as an important fixture in the city’s most singular and imaginative artistic circles, before emerging as an irresistible creative force in her own right with last year’s Come In EP. Raised in a deeply musical household, Georgia first began to play the drums as a child before gradually progressing into a musician of prodigious ability and range by the time she reached her late teens. Combining music study at London’s SOAS with a stint working on the counter at Rough Trade, Georgia quickly made a lot of very natural musical connections – being invited to play with DIY innovators such as Kwes and Kate Tempest among others.
