Georgia Barry / Press

“'Her live performance is fairly unique in London, given that the amount of soul musicians touring various venues is very small, and her backing band really lift the performance aspect of her music. It’s this uniqueness that won her a place at OxJam festival last weekend and regular gigs throughout the capital. There are times when Georgia edges towards the 90s style of Mariah esque pop-princess before snapping back to the more powerful tones of some of her older influences. Overall it’s the power of her classically-trained voice that will make most audiences stand up and take note.'”

“'Despite this being Georgia Barry’s introduction to the UK scene she is no stranger to the music business. Her uncle was the bassist for the Sunny Jim Band who enjoyed much fame in the eighties throughout Europe. Georgia is based London and has attracted the attention of L.A producer Gavin Christopher who has written music for the likes of Chaka Khan and Grandmaster Flash. Currently working with Julian Chown (worked with Universal Music Publishing, Sony BMB & London records to name a few). Georgia’s honest song writing is given a real chance to stand out during a time when lyricism is often overlooked. The genuine emotion transferred from her notepad to the music booth is what impressed me the most with the talented rising star. And with the help of some of the mammoth names she’s been accredited to working with I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of the talented singer & songwriter.'”

Influenced by some industry greats including Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys Georgia has worked with producer Gavin Christopher, and take her twist on R&B Soul into venues across the capital.'”

“'Women That You Need' radiates an energetic, happy and soulful feel with a catchy tune, and resembles songs by other soul artists such as Joss Stone as Emilie Sande. Georgia’s songs are emotional, personal and honest, and her style is varied; from her R&B pop-style song, ‘Can’t say no’ to her slow love ballad, ‘Stay with me,’ Georgia proves that she can be flexible and versatile with any genre, whether that be R&B, pop, soul, dance or gospel.'”
