Artist: Georgia Meek
Release: When You’re Sober (26th April)
Her musical journey started with a string of successes in various bands, garnering support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Shell Zenner & BBC Introducing. However in 2017, Georgia took the step to launch her solo project. Since then, she’s rapidly made an impact with fans and the industry alike. Her critically acclaimed single ‘Bare’ clocked over 18,000 streams overnight, before rising to 350,000 listens since then. As a solo artist, she’s been featured by the likes of Clash Magazine, Stylist, Wonderland Magazine, Missguided and plenty more.
The young Londoner has developed a reputation for honest, raw pop music that doesn’t hide away from difficult themes. As with all great songwriters, Georgia calls upon her own experiences in her art. She preaches values around feminism, sexual fluidity and domestic violence – The latter, in particular points to a traumatic experience in Georgia’s life, where she was subject to physical and emotional abuse from her former partner.
Now in a more positive mindset, Georgia is using her life experience to manifest a blossoming artist career. Last year, a string of releases led to performances at BBC Introducing, Camden Assembly, Sofar London and two performances at industry melting pot The Great Escape in Brighton. The next single “When You’re Sober” is the second track from her “Pop Culture” EP, due later this year. It’s a massive, powerful, electronic pop production that perfectly complements Georgia’s piercing topline. The track ebbs and flows between emotive piano breakdowns and anthemic 808 hits. On the new track, Georgia states:
We always complain about people treating us badly when it comes to relationships and dating, but why are we so fast to accept that something is as much as we deserve? Do we not make it easy for people to be unfaithful, uncommitted and inconsiderate, when we are already treating ourselves that way?
“these experiences that beautifully enrich the North Londoner’s deeply powerful indie-pop ballads.” – Wonderland Magazine
“Bold in it’s execution, she isn’t afraid to touch on highly personal experiences, resulting in some lucid, emotive songwriting” – Clash Magazine
