"Curating, MC-ing and performing the opening set each night, Georgia herself was consistently beguiling across a huge range of material , from beautiful Jobim bossas to risk-taking vocalise to little known Chet Baker gems"
"One of the great pleasures of ReVoice! is hearing Mancio perform in duo with some of the UK's finest musicians... Eloquent, elegiac and intensely moving, I've never heard Mancio sing ..more beautifully."
"All credit once again to popular vocalist and innovator Georgia Mancio for achieving sell-outs and a genuine sense of international teamwork"
“From the giddiest spectacle to the most intimate human concern, this was a gig with everything to offer. A triumph of both programming and performance”
“the archetype of a modern singer who can style-hop at will and produce…thoroughly musical and textually convincing versions of – er – anything”
Features & Interviews
ReVoice! was 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, growing from a 5 to 12 day event across 4 venues both in and out of London with partners the Union Chapel, the 606 Club, The Apex (Bury St Edmunds) and Watermill Jazz.
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, many of which were heard on her 2015 album Live at ReVoice!
The unique combination of artist and curator is what set ReVoice! apart.
