Georgia Mancio

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: January 6, 1972    

Award-winning jazz vocalist and lyricist, Georgia Mancio, is one of the UK’s most important and original new artists. A performer of pure class and integrity, Georgia has proved herself a true improviser with an unfailing flow, innate musicality and a boundless and bold imagination. Her music embraces her Anglo/Italian/Uruguayan background: seamlessly performing in five languages and interpreting Fats Waller, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Kenny Wheeler, The Beatles, Brazilian samba, Chilean folk and Italian pop often with her own beautifully crafted lyrics.

She has worked with Bobby McFerrin, Sheila Jordan, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Jason Rebello, Gwilym Simcock, James Pearson, Jim Mullen, Nikki Iles, Jim Hart, Laurence Cottle, Gareth Lockrane, Michael Janisch, Kate Williams and Bobby Wellins among many others. She has played several residencies at Ronnie Scott's opening for Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton, Milton Nascimento, Joey DeFrancesco, Ramsey Lewis, Steve Smith, Lee Retinue, Ray Gelato and Dave Holland’s Overtone Quartet. She has produced 3 albums (Peaceful Place, Trapeze and Silhouette) on her own label, Roomspin Records. BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line-Up have twice broadcast her live concerts: with Darius Brubeck in 2011 and with John Parricelli in 2013. Georgia has also been the featured vocalist with Frank Griffith’s Nonet since 2008 and in 2005 beat contestants from all over the globe to take first prize in the Brussels International Young Jazz Singers’ Competition....
