Georgia performs with her longstanding quartet which features pianist Kate Williams (Bobby Wellins, Chris Biscoe, Pete Hurt Orchestra), bassist Steve Watts (Joe Lovano, Django Bates, The Printmakers) and drummer Dave Ohm (Ian Shaw, Gregory Porter, Anthony Strong). Together they play a deliciously eclectic set that includes songs from Italy and South America, reinvented David Bowie and Beatles treasures and new pieces co-written with songwriting partners Alan Broadbent and Kate Williams, all tied by Georgia’s hallmark integrity and emotional commitment.
