At just 22 years of age, Georgia has already mastered a retro jazz/swing style of music that is both vintage and fresh (hence the name of the band). It’s contagious and subconsciously gets you tapping your feet (think Jools Holland or Paolo Nutini) whilst her ballads are stripped back allowing Georgia’s strong and iconic vocal to take you somewhere inside yourself and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end (think Adele or Amy Winehouse).
