Breakthrough rock n soul songstress Georgie will be supporting Manchester band Blossoms at Potterrow this December. The 21-year-old has confirmed her place on the band’s 10-date tour across the British Isles, with the Edinburgh gig falling slap bang in the middle of the schedule.
After an incredible 2015, in which the youngster was snapped up by Jake Bugg’s manager and later signed a deal with Columbia Records (home of Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel and more latterly, Beyoncé and Daft Punk), Georgie has gone from similar strength to strength in 2016.
She played Glastonbury in June of this year (catching the ears of music boffins over at the BBC) and released her first single with the help of studio maestro Matthew E. White. Now, she’ll bring her superb voice and unique brand of soulful pop-rock to Edinburgh on the 5th December at Potterrow.
Manchester band blossoming nicely
Meanwhile, headliners Blossoms (so named for the pub round the corner from where they first rehearsed together) are enjoying a similarly successful 2016. Their debut album Blossoms was released in August of this year, peaking at no.1 in its first week out in the world.
The ongoing tour is a celebration of that success and the gig at Potterrow promises to be an indication of why they’ve been such hot property in their hometown of Manchester, famous for producing a long list of excellent bands.
Tickets for the Potterrow gig (and the majority of the rest of the tour) seem to have gone like hotcakes, proving that these lads are one to keep an eye on in the coming months and years.
