SOLO TOUR: JUNE–JULY 2018
Georgia Fields’ postcard-perfect pop combines the astral with the ordinary, earning her a reputation as one of Melbourne's brightest independent artists.
Brimming with an intoxicating melodicism, Fields’ stellar song-craft draws on influences as far-reaching as Greek mythology, lunar folklore and the succulent anatomy of citrus fruits. Featuring an eclectic menagerie of sounds – from vintage casios and shimmering omnichords, to vocal loops and electric guitar – Fields' captivating solo show is full of wit and wonder: “intelligent, seductive 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. 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 who declared, "Georgia Fields dreams in fantastic Technicolor".
