Back in the early 2000’s Georgie Williams seemed on the threshold of a career as a pop singer. Following appearances, her unusual voice and original lyrics had attracted record companies and promoters. A determined individual from the school of hard knocks with a background of a broken home and abuse she appeared resilient and tough. Her management however wanted to exploit her emerging talent in the genre of the day and assembled a girl band around her. Although uncomfortable with this format the more serious composer baulked at this.
Like many twists and turns in her life Fate dealt a double blow to Georgie. First the company launching the girl band on which significant sums had been spent was taken over and the project abandoned . The second blow was more profound and has shaped the person both artistically and practically we see today.
Georgie became ill and her journey ever since has been one of pain and suffering. Countless operations, hospitalization and constant pain have literally been her bedfellows ever since. Throughout this time with the additional responsibilities of motherhood, a broken relationship and financial struggles, she turned back to music both as a solus , an inspiration and a way of telling her story and experiences.
In 2011 she composed a series of songs appropriately entitled “Nil by Mouth” and felt strong enough to think about relaunching her career, an older and wiser woman.
She also met Paul Davis a businessman who was also fighting through a tough time in his personal and professional life. Together they contemplated the possibility of relaunching the musical dream.
