ABOUT GEORGIA FIELDS
"Georgia Fields dreams in fantastic Technicolor. ★★★★" – The Sydney Morning Herald
Brimming with an intoxicating melodicism, Georgia Fields’ vivid songcraft draws on influences as far-reaching as Greek mythology, lunar folklore and the succulent anatomy of citrus fruits, earning her a reputation as one of Melbourne's brightest indie-folk singer-songwriters. Featuring an eclectic menagerie of sounds – from vintage casios and shimmering omnichords, to vocal loops and electric guitar – Fields' captivating solo show is "evocative" (Frankie Magazine) and "touched by a vividly-blooming magic" (The Autumn Roses, USA).
Georgia Fields has been performing, producing and releasing original music independently for over a decade. Following the release of her celebrated 2007 debut EP Drama on the High Seas of Emotion (with each album cover lovingly hand-made from a vintage Little Golden Book), Fields assembled her 11-piece 'Mini-Indie-Orchestra', performed on national television for SBS’ RocKwiz, and continues to tour nationally. Her 2010 self-titled Georgia Fields LP was named Album of the Week for ABC Radio National and Beat Magazine. 2016's critically acclaimed Astral Debris album was featured on PBS FM and Triple R FM, Double J, and community radio across the country, being awarded four stars by The Sydney Morning Herald, and lauded in The Herald Sun newspaper as "her finest, most expansive work yet."
Ever the sonic shape-shifter, in 2017 Fields unveiled Afloat, Adrift: a stunning retrospective album, recorded live at Newmarket Studios with The Andromeda String Quartet. Raw and visceral, yet sweeping with an old-world romance, Afloat, Adrift features new string quartet versions of material spanning her 10-year career.
