Finding Georgia is a Country Rock band from Leicester, United Kingdom. Featuring a new line-up for 2019 that now includes Georgie Surridge (lead vocals, piano, keyboards), Simon Kirk (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Laffan (bass), John Dilworth (guitar and vocals) and Carl Skidmore (drums and vocals).
Finding Georgia originally formed in 2012 as a tribute to the contemporary country songwriters such as Gretchen Wilson, Brad Paisley, Sugarland and Miranda Lambert. The band are currently writing and recording material for their debut release scheduled for this year.
As the band explains “… We love covering songs from our favourite Country artists. Their material has amazing writing with great lyrics and killer hooks. Whilst this is fun, particularly given that it is largely unknown in the UK, we increasingly wanted to also tell our own stories and take on the difficult challenge of turning life into song. We hope our themes will be recognisable to many as that’s what song writing and being in a band is about for us. To relate with something through music and share that through songs and live performances…”
Whilst the focus for 2019 is the studio and writing, Finding Georgia still have a busy schedule of gigs which will retain some elements of the original FG set list. “…It’s definitely evolution rather than revolution! We have the same desire to focus on hooks and lyrics associated with modern Country music’ and we can’t wait to share our material with the release of our EP and our shows during 2019…”
