Featuring heavy hitters like Neville Staple and Jools Holland’s R&B Orchestra’s Dave Swift, Georgia Crandon and her band, a.k.a. Georgia & The Vintage Youth, create a soulful reminder of the power of #indie with their new release titled ‘Remember Brick Lane’. The four-song EP is a walk-through of jazz and soul laced with the experience of giants and the hunger of a true artist.
About Georgia & The Vintage Youth
Georgia is just 21 years of age, Essex girl with a big voice, big blonde hair and a cool little jazz band called The Vintage Youth. Her retro jazz/swing style of music is both vintage and fresh, hence the name of the band. The music gets you tapping your feet (think Jools Holland or Paolo Nutini) whilst her ballads are stripped back allowing Georgia’s strong 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).
Georgia hadn’t been on the music scene for very long when she performed live at the NEC Arena, Birmingham in the UK and gained 2nd place in a competition ahead of 9000 other hopefuls in July 2015. Her solo acoustic rendition of a re-written Rodgers & Hammerstein piece ‘My Favourite Things’ during that final was awesome and certainly memorable to all those there.
Since then she has virtually written her first album, released her debut EP ‘The Girl’ and follow up EP ‘El Reco’ which features Neville Staple (The Specials) and has been played on BBC Radio 2.
In November 2015 her debut single obtained her Westfield/Senheisser artist of the month. Georgia and her band are now beginning to gig regularly on the London scene since being played regularly on BBC Radio. (BBC 2, BBC London, Essex, Kent, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and many more including Wales.)

The future looks incredibly bright for Georgia after appearances on Vintage TV for their Christmas sessions specials and much more in the pipeline, for now, enjoy the beginning of this shining new star with this collection of tracks from previous EP’s.
