ReVoice! is the international voice festival created by Georgia Mancio in 2010 and produced in association with The Pizza Express Jazz Club in London.  

In just 5 years ReVoice! has grown from a 5 day event to last year’s 12 day, 4 venue extravaganza both in and out of London.  Now an established, exciting fixture in the annual music calendar, ReVoice! sees Georgia programming, presenting and performing in a different format every night.  This unique combination of artist and curator is what sets ReVoice!  apart.

To date Georgia has programmed over 160 musicians and created a platform for many artists previously underrated or unseen in the UK.  She is part of a movement of musicians (including Michael Janisch’s Whirlwind, Trish Clowes’ Emulsion, Clark Tracey’s Herts Jazz Festival, Brandon Allen’s Highgate Jazz With Soul, Dave Stapleton’s Edition Records) giving back to their music community and stepping beyond the imposed boundaries of promoter and player.
