Welcome to the official home of Finding Georgia; a country rock band from Leicestershire in the United Kingdom. We formed in 2012 in tribute to contemporary Country songwriters such as Gretchen Wilson and Miranda Lambert. We are now turning our attention to writing and recording original material.
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 spent many years covering songs from some of our favourite Country songwriters. Their material has amazing lyrics and killer hooks and since 2012 it formed the heart of our live performances.
We now want to tell our own stories and take on the challenge of turning life into song. Our themes will be recognisable to fans of Miranda, Gretchen and BJ Barham amongst others who have been hugely influential. 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 alongside ‘The Kentucky Headhunters’ and received an amazing reception and positive feedback from a packed audience in response including:
“.. 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..”.
We are now back in the studio and finalising remaining tracks for our forthcoming debut release. A big shout-out to Dave Tidmarsh of Zephyr Studios and Ed Bramford of Toseland for all their help so far.
For now, our singles are available on all the usual music platforms including Spotify and iTunes. These highlight the breadth of our sound from the introspective ‘Rear View Mirror’ to the southern-inspired powerhouse of ‘Hangman’s Train’
