12 Jul Essex Based Georgia Crandon Hits The Music Scene
by Dan Bryans
She’s only 21, but Georgia Crandon, the prodigious talent from Essex with a huge voice, big bouffant hair and cool little jazz band is really getting herself noticed.
Georgia has been writing songs and playing the piano from the age of 10. With her band The Vintage Youth, this musical powerhouse is delivering a refreshing brand of music that smashes through the traditional genre barriers by mixing jazz with reggae and ska, ragtime and even pop.
Her clever compositions blend influences from Louis Prima, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, and more recent legends like Amy Winehouse, Paulo Nutini and Paloma Faith. And when combined with the young artist’s compelling stagecraft and soaring vocals which range from deep to delicate, every performance ends with the audience on their feet screaming for more.
If Georgia’s fan base is growing day by day so too is her reputation amongst her peers. The good news is that neither will be disappointed by her phenomenal new album titled “El Reco” (taken from the nickname of the legendary trombonist Rico Rodrigues) which will be launched in September this year and no doubt spark comparisons to musical luminaries past and present.
