2010 – 2014
ReVoice! is the international voice festival created and produced by Georgia Mancio in association with The Pizza Express Jazz Club in London. The festival ran for 5 consecutive editions between 2010 and 2014 and presented vocal luminaries including Carmen Lundy, Raúl Midon, Tuck & Patti, Beady Belle, Norma Winstone, Becca Stevens, Maria Pia de Vito, Karin Krog, Kevin Mahogany and famously Gregory Porter in his first UK booking.
In just 5 years ReVoice! grew from a 5 day event to a 12 day, 4 venue extravaganza both in and out of London. It established Georgia as an adventurous and informed curator – giving a platform to 160 musicians many previously unknown to UK audiences.
It also announced Georgia as a highly skilled and versatile artist in her own right as she performed a staggering 44 bespoke sets herself. Her collaborators included: Jason Rebello, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw, Gareth Lockrane, Jim Hart, Michael Janisch, Kate Williams, Barry Green/Bobby Wellins, Nikki Iles, Andrew Cleyndert, Dave Chamberlain, Ross Stanley, James Pearson, Dave Newton, Nigel Price, Maurizio Minardi, Grant Windsor, Jim Mullen, Robert Mitchell, John Parricelli, Gareth Lockrane/Geoff Gascoyne, Laurence Cottle and Pete Churchill. Many were heard on her 2015 album Live at ReVoice!
The unique combination of artist and curator is what set ReVoice! apart.
