Another show coming off the line with week with our special guest GEORGIAXBYRNE.
Announcing to her family at four years of age that she was going to become a rockstar, Cairns belle GEORGIAXBYRNE is heading in the right direction to make her childhood aspiration a reality.
Arriving on the scene in 2020 with her debut Blank Spaces and follow-up single Sorry, Georgia has started her music career strong, climbing the Triple J charts and racking up over 20,000 streams on Spotify. A huge win for an artist who creates music in her bedroom alongside studying at university full-time and working a day job.
Dabbling in the musical ponds of electronica and pop, Georgia’s latest release – third single Better Man – weaves pulsing synths and bass heavy lines into a bouncy, light-hearted number that addresses the universal theme of heartbreak from a positive angle of self-love.
“Better Man is about moving on from a past love and realising what you never had before – knowing how you should be treated and not settling for less. It’s a different vibe from my past two singles as I’ve developed as a writer and made a few big changes in my life and to the people around me,” said the songstress, who teamed up with Gold Coast producer Soft Nylon (Dylan Lindquist) for the track.
Inspired personally and professionally by strong female pop artists like megastar Taylor Swift and local heroines Vera Blue and Mallrat, Georgia says her work in the music industry has been a learning curve that’s taught her to stand firm in her self-worth.
“I’ve definitely faced a few obstacles already within this industry. Being a small female, emerging artist comes with its struggles such as being second guessed constantly and not taken seriously but it genuinely does spark a drive in me to work harder.”
“For me, measuring success is a hard one. I make sure I celebrate the small wins when it comes to my music, so when the big wins do come along it’s a very special occasion.”
Gaining momentum with each release, Georgia says she’s looking forward to working on more singles, getting back into the live music scene that she missed during covid-19 restrictions, and making new connections through her music.
“Easily one of the best pieces of advice I’ve received is to never stop collaborating, connecting and creating. You never know when the right time and place will be so the more you hustle and grow and meet people, the better chance you’ll have to be heard.”
The only way is up for this electro-pop belle!
