By combining chilled out instrumentation, a beautiful vocal and well crafted lyrics, Brighton born singer/songwriter Giorgia-May is definitely an artist well worth your time!
Currently residing in Hastings, Giorgia-May (real name Giorgia Moran) is no stranger to the world of music, having had an online presence for over 6 years now. We recently caught up with her to find out more...
So why the name Giorgia-May?
Haha, I just think it sounds better than Giorgia Moran. May is my middle name. It's also nice to have a 'stage' name that is still personal to me, but I can separate it from my full name nonetheless. You know?
If you had to explain your sound in just one sentence, what would it be?
Sensual and jazzy soul tunes!
What do you play?
I play guitar and sing. I took a few drum and piano lessons when I was young but it never really stuck. However, I have literally just bought myself a Korg digital piano so I'll soon be back on the keys. I also like to pretend that one day I'll be rocking it as a drummer in an all-female band. One can only dream.
When did you start making music?
I think the actual songwriting journey began when I was about 10 years old. As soon as I started learning guitar it became a means of writing for me. I'd been singing for a little while before learning any instruments, just in like summer camp when you get up on stage and sing to backing tracks and stuff.
