Biography of Georgia Mancio

Trapeze, the critically acclaimed second album by award-winning vocalist Georgia Mancio has cemented her position as one of the UK’s brightest young jazz stars. Since turning professional in 2000 she has performed with: Bobby McFerrin (as part of an acapella choir at the 2003 London Jazz Festival); Sheila Jordan and David Linx (in Belgium 2006); Liane Carroll (guesting at Ronnie Scott’s) and most recently in concert with Ian Shaw, Norma Winstone and Anita Wardell (The True Jazz Voice, The Lighthouse, Poole). Her current 23 date Jazz Services Tour with her band - Gareth Lockrane, John Pearce, Dave Green, Dave Ohm and Anselmo Netto – began with a support slot opposite Cedar Walton at Ronnie Scott’s and includes The Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Hawth, Swanage Jazz Festival, Harri’s, The Fleece, The 606, Swindon Arts Centre and Chichester Jazz Club. She is also making a name for herself on the continent having won first prize at the First Brussels International Young Jazz Singers’ Competition in 2005 and subsequently playing venues and festivals in Italy, Belgium and Portugal (including a live T.V. performance on Culture Club).


A natural, instinctive musician with a pure, honeyed tone, Mancio’s deceptively simple delivery is always shot through with sincerity and gravitas. Her music is an intriguing reflection of her Anglo-Latino background. Predominantly a standards singer, she also specialises in South American and European music and is a lyricist. As a child she played classical flute, went on to train as an actor and film-maker before returning to her musical roots (her Italian grandparents were a concert pianist and opera singer respectively) to study jazz and voice. She co-produced (with Andrew Cleyndert) her 2003 debut album, Peaceful Place which features pianist Tim Lapthorn, her songwriting partner. Both that album and the 2008 Trapeze have received extensive press (The Guardian, The Standard, The Observer, Jazz UK, Jazz Review, Jazz Journal International, JazzReview.com, BBC On Line, Jazzwise) and radio play (Jazz FM; Best of Jazz (Radio 2); Jazz Line-up, Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3); Loose Ends (Radio 4 - live broadcast); LaGuagua (Radio Palermo, Argentina); TheJazz; Sky Digital; RBF (Belgium/France); Radio Citta Futura (Italy).


Other work includes: guest spots with the New Squadronaires and Memphis Belle Big Bands; featured soloist on the soundtrack to the BBC2 film The Iceberg That Sank The Titanic; jury member of the 2006 Brussels International Young Jazz Singers’ Competition and appearances at: The Vortex; Mill Hill Jazz Festival (The Next Big Thing); Jagz; Ealing Jazz Festival; The Stables; Langholm Music and Arts Festival and The 100 Club. Mancio is also featured in the 2007 editions of Who’s Who In Jazz and Cabaret and Entertainment Divas - Jazz and Cabaret.
