Tipped as ‘One To Watch’ by Wonderland Magazine, Jazz FM and BBC Introducing, Georgia Cécile is at the helm of the new wave of UK jazz-pop crossover artists.
Growing up in Glasgow immersed in jazz music, Georgia's grandfather was a renowned jazz pianist. Inspired by the likes of Nancy Wilson, Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln and Stevie Wonder, the vocalist, songwriter and producer's debut album 'Only The Lover Sings' topped the UK jazz and blues charts and has remained in the Top 20 for its first 12 weeks and counting.
Championed by the likes of Gregory Porter and Jamie Cullum - this year she toured as the main support for Gregory Porter - opening four sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Gaining major attention in 2021 for her engaging live performances, she toured a host of sold-out UK shows including Queens Hall Edinburgh, Folklore Hoxton, London's Ronnie Scott's, as well as opening London Jazz Festival at Royal Festival Hall with Guy Barker’s 46-piece orchestra- broadcast live on BBC FOUR.
A serious songwriter of her generation, Georgia has been heavily supported by BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, Jazz FM, 6 Music, and BBC Scotland.
