Georgia Mancio

Award-winning jazz vocalist/lyricist, Georgia Mancio, has proved herself one of the UK’s most original, adventurous and multi-faceted new artists. 

A true improviser with a boundless and bold imagination, Georgia produces music of beauty, bite and unfailing integrity, embracing a wide-ranging jazz and modern song repertoire alongside influences from her Anglo/Italian/Uruguayan heritage.
