Award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, is one of Europe’s most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted new artists. Her multi-lingual music references classic jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity.
In summer 2018 Georgia made her US debut at Rochester International Jazz Festival and Kitano (NY) with her song-writing partner Grammy-winning pianist/composer, Alan Broadbent, following their 2017 album release, Songbook, sold out headline at Ronnie Scott’s (“unequivocally, one of the gigs of the year” Jazzwise) and subsequent performances across Europe.
Other credits include Bobby McFerrin, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw, Bobby Wellins, Gwilym Simcock, Darius Brubeck, Pat Metheny (lyric approval), her own festivals ReVoice! and Hang and multiple nominations in the Parliamentary, British Jazz and Urban Music Awards. Her 7th album, Finding Home, co-written with pianist/composer Kate Williams will be released in 2019.
