Selector Live Presents: Georgia Singer and Multi-Instrumentalist for the First Time in Kiev
Former football player and drummer Kate Tempest, whose first album absorbed the influence of Missy Elliott and post-punk, is all young British star Georgia. At one time, she almost turned her music career into a sports one and could still play for Arsenal Ladies. But, growing up in a musical family, Georgia has chosen the path that it continues today. Her 2015 debut was accompanied by high-profile comparisons to MIA and Missy Elliott and rapturous compliments on her drumming. By the way, on all instruments on this album the girl played herself. Her second solo album, Seeking Thrills, will be released in January 2020, and the artist will play her first concert in Ukraine with the support of the British Council.
Date and Place: February 29, 2020, Caribbean Club.
Her dad is Neil Barnes of the Leftfield electric duo. At the same time, her children's room was the studio of her father's group, and, according to Georgia, she had been steeped in dance music throughout her life. “I as a person consist of house and techno. At home, Frankie Knuckles' music, all the Trax albums, and Jeff Mills, Underground Resistance, Model 500 were constantly playing at home. Georgia music sounds like it was born somewhere on hot dance floors in 1989, but broke into the 21st century.
This year Georgia was particularly active - at the same time as preparing for the album, the singer managed to go on tour with Jungle. She has also released several singles, one of them, About Work The Dancefloor, which is the epitome of her experiences with the club culture she met on long tours. “Come out to dance, feel these emotions, this collective energy in different spaces. This is the old school disco, the capture of the dance floor. " The video for the latest Georgia Never Let You Go track was shot by Joseph Connor, known for his work on Sam Smith and Coldplay.
