Georgas draws in crowd with captivating originals

Sets bar high for headliner Fisher

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Thursday evening the London Music Hall was jam-packed with a crowd eagerly awaiting talented singer-songwriter Hannah Georgas to take the stage.

Accompanied by only her guitar, Georgas captivated the audience from start to finish, leaving them wanting more. She began her set with a song off her 2009 EP The Beat Stuff, which was sung as a beautiful a cappella. Georgas’ strong and distinct voice makes her simple yet eloquent lyrics stand out.

Having written all the songs on The Beat Stuff herself, Georgas’ lyrics touch on themes most can relate to " from having a crush to fighting with a sibling " allowing the listener to get lost in the song.

The dim lighting and coffee house aesthetic of the London Music Hall cradled the acoustic sound of Georgas perfectly and made for a relaxed setting to enjoy the performance. The turnout was phenomenal as there were few empty seats in the venue.

Her set flew by, having only recorded five songs on the EP. Jeremy Fisher accompanied Georgas on stage for her final two songs, resulting in a fusion of two tremendously talented artists. Fisher on harmonica complimented Georgas during one of her original songs, making it even more enjoyable. They finished the set with a cover of Tegan and Sara’s “Call It Off,” with Georgas singing lead vocals and Fisher on guitar and backup vocals.

Georgas has been opening for Fisher throughout his cross-country tour. The Georgas-Fisher duo is a perfect match as they complement each other flawlessly.

The immense talent of Georgas radiated off the stage during every song, leaving the audience wanting more. Keep an eye out for Hannah Georgas’ full-length album, which should hit record stores sometime this year.
