The Tamburlaine Hotel
Award-winning jazz vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, is one of Europe’s most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted new artists. Her music references classic jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity.
This year Georgia released her 7th album - Finding Home co-produced with pianist/composer Kate Williams and her acclaimed Four Plus Three ensemble and classical guitarist John Williams. It follows her seminal Songbook (2017) co-written with Grammy-winning pianist/composer Alan Broadbent, launched at a sold out headline show at Ronnie Scott’s (“unequivocally, one of the gigs of the year” - Jazzwise) with subsequent performances across Europe and the US.
Other credits include Bobby McFerrin, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw, Bobby Wellins, Gwilym Simcock, Darius Brubeck, Pat Metheny (lyric approval), her own festivals ReVoice! and Hang and multiple nominations in the Parliamentary, British Jazz and Urban Music Awards.
Georgia will be performing with her quartet: Kate Williams (piano), Conor Chaplin (bass) and Dave Ohm (drums).
