Welcome to the official home of Finding Georgia; the country rock band from Leicestershire in the United Kingdom.
The band originally formed in September 2012 with musicians who shared a common passion for traditional and contemporary country music. After many months of searching, the strong vocals required of this genre were found in Georgie Surridge. Her voice (nurtured in the Welsh valleys and on the West End stage) “evokes the greatest modern female country stars such as Miranda Lambert, Gretchen Wilson and Jennifer Nettles”.
We are a fully live performing and originals recording band. We tell our own stories with themes that will be recognisable to fans of Miranda, Gretchen and BJ Barham amongst others who have been hugely influential on our writing. A lot has happened to this band collectively and individually and much of that is reflected in our material.
Early signs are fantastic. We showcased our original material at the Sheffield O2 Academy HRH CROWS festival and received an amazing reception with positive feedback from a sell-out crowd. Examples include:
“.. Saw these guys at HRH CROWS at Sheffield O2. All I can say is wow!!. Absolutely blew us away. Can’t wait for the EP release..”,
“..Absolutely brilliant. Real story telling in their music. Loved every second..”,
“..thank you for such a good show. One of the highlights of the weekend..”.
A review by Metalvillezine reflected the feedback and stated “..Finding Georgia were the 1st relevant band on stage two upstairs on the Sunday who nail their place on the map with their country rock with Georgina Surridge taking care of the lead vocals. A powerful band who deserve a show or two here in their own right or a good tour supporting slot at least..”
As a result, Finding Georgia were offered UK support slots for Jessica Lynn and Sons of Liberty.
Our debut EP ‘A Thrill Gone Bad’ will be released in September 2020. Recorded at Zephyr Studios with the support of Ed Bramford of Toseland, the 4 track EP shows the breadth of the Finding Georgia sound from the introspective ‘Rear View Mirror’ to the southern-inspired powerhouse of the title track ‘A Thrill Gone Bad’. The debut EP will be available on CD and all other digital music platforms.
