"Georgia Fields dreams in fantastic Technicolor. ★★★★" – The Sydney Morning Herald
Brimming with an intoxicating melodicism, Georgia is one of Melbourne’s brightest voices in modern indie-folk. Her critically-acclaimed songcraft draws on influences as far reaching as Greek mythology, lunar folklore and the succulent anatomy of citrus fruits. Georgia’s captivating solo show is full of wit and wonder: "intelligent, seductive, and touched by a gracefully-blooming magic" (Autumn Roses, USA).
Georgia Fields has been performing, producing and releasing original music independently for over a decade. Since the release of her acclaimed 2007 debut EP Drama on the High Seas of Emotion (with over 700 album covers lovingly hand-made from vintage Little Golden Books), 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 highly anticipated Astral Debris album was featured on PBS and Triple R community radio, and awarded four stars by The Sydney Morning Herald.
