In 2008, she won Music B.C.’s Songbird West Songwriting Contest for her catchy tune, ‘The Beat Stuff’. She earned airplay on CBC Radio 3 and won the station’s 2009 Bucky Award for Best New Artist.
Georgas has since released two EPs and her latest album, This is Good, all in the span of just a year and a half.
The starlet spent most of 2010 on the road, but now she’s coming back to the studio again; and she says we can expect a new album in 2012.
This is Good was released in April 2010 and was produced by Ryan Guldemond and Howard Redekopp. The album begins with ‘Chit Chat’, a song filled with attitude and spunk.
This is Good is packed with different moods and beats. Georgas’ songs have an unusual perspective, but are memorable, and very catchy.
The mixes are remarkably clean – you can always hear and understand her lyrics. ‘Thick Skin’, for example, has a circus feel to it. It’s odd, but it’s a fantastical kind of odd with a great combination of instruments. As the song progresses, it gets more dramatic – the drums get louder, the lyrics get harsher. . . . Her words take on more of an edge, and the song itself becomes like a book that you just can’t put down.
In ‘Shine’, Georgas asks, “Is there a place for me in your eyes?” The heartfelt lyrics make for a very enchanting track, one many people can relate to, an honest look at what a lot of us really want – to love and be loved.
Georgas doesn’t hold back in her lyrics and that is definitely something to be admired.
‘Lovers Breakdown’ has a very light and airy feel to it. Easy to sing along to, it’s a feel-good song that makes you want to put your feet up and just relax. The harmonies in both ‘Lovers Breakdown’ and ‘Bang Bang You’re Dead’ really add depth and create this full quality to her music.
‘Bang Bang You’re Dead’, in particular, is packed with harmonies and sounds that you wouldn’t think would go together.
That’s the thing about Hannah Georgas: her mixes are great, her voice is unique and you never know what you’re going to get.
All I know is that I can’t stop thinking, This Is Good.
