Georgia Mancio is an award-winning vocalist with a beautiful vocal tone and direct style that lends itself perfectly to her swinging and sophisticated set. It’s a measure of her impressive ability that in 2005 she won the Brussels International Young Jazz Singers Award, was nominated Best Vocalist in the 2015 Parliamentary Jazz Awards and was twice nominated for London Jazz’s “Musician of the Year” in 2016. She has worked with many artists of global stature, including the likes of Bobby McFerrin, Sheila Jordan, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Jason Rebello, Gwilym Simcock and the late, great, Bobby Wellins. A true improviser with a boundless imagination, Georgia produces music of beauty and bite, embracing a wide-ranging jazz repertoire reflecting influences from her Anglo/Italian/Uruguayan heritage alongside her own original writings. She has released five studio albums to date, including her latest "Live at ReVoice!" (2015), a collection of duos recorded at her own universally acclaimed International Voice Festival. In 2013 she began a highly acclaimed collaboration with two-time Grammy award-winning jazz pianist and composer Alan Broadbent and they will be releasing an album of co-written originals later this year. Tonight she will be bringing to the Club her latest line up featuring the highly regarded pianist Kate Williams along with her regular rhythm section of Dave Whitford-bass and Dave Ohm-drums.The repertoire she performs is an eclectic mix of jazz standards, originals, gentle Latin and infectious Brazilian music and is quite wonderful. Georgia and Dave (her long term partner) will be celebrating 16 years together tonight (aaah) so expect plenty of friends, some musical surprises and a lot of fun!
