Georgia Mancio

Multi award-winning /nominated vocalist, lyricist and producer, Georgia Mancio, is one of Europe’s most respected, adventurous and multi-faceted new artists. Her multi-lingual music references classic jazz and Latin alongside her own astonishing writing, always stamped with an unfailing emotional integrity.

In March 2021 Georgia releases her 8th album, Quiet Is The Star, co-written with long-standing musical collaborator, the double-Grammy-winning jazz pianist and composer, Alan Broadbent. The release is accompanied by the publication of 'The Songs of Alan Broadbent and Georgia Mancio' – a book of their 33 co-written works to date.

It follows their seminal Songbook (2017), 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, including famed New York clubs Dizzy’s, Kitano and Mezzrow and international jazz festivals in Rochester (NY), Krakow and London.

In 2019, Finding Home, co-produced with pianist/composer Kate Williams and her acclaimed Four Plus Three ensemble with special guest classical guitarist John Williams, was awarded Best Album in 2020 UK Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

From 2010-2014 Georgia produced her now iconic 'ReVoice! Festival' in association with the Pizza Express Jazz Club. Across 5 multi-venue editions she presented over 160 artists including: Rebecca Parris, Tuck & Patti, Raul Midon, Gregory Porter (his first UK booking), Beady Belle, Carleen Anderson, Carmen Souza, Karin Krog and Diana Torto/Kenny Wheeler/John Taylor and performed 44 sets herself.

Since 2017 Georgia has produced 3 editions of her new series, 'Hang', showcasing her ever- evolving creativity as a curator and collaborative kudos and versatility with artists including Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Nigel Price, Nikki Iles, Alina Bzhezhinska, Gareth Lockrane, Trish Clowes and Tom Cawley.

Georgia’s other credits include 2019 BBC Proms (soloist and UK Vocal Assembly), Bobby McFerrin, Bobby Wellins, Gwilym Simcock, Jason Rebello, Robert Mitchell, Darius Brubeck, Pat Metheny (lyric approval) and multiple nominations in the Parliamentary, British Jazz and Urban Music Awards.
