Comprised of some of Melbourne’s best; Tom Brooks, Patrick Wilson and Laura Baxter, and fronted by lauded songwriter Georgia Delves, the band melds both vintage and contemporary sounds to craft songs steeped in Tennessee sunsets. Delves’ voice is effortlessly colourful, lyrical and textural with a depth and grace to rival even the most revered of talents.
Georgia State Line has performed at Out On The Weekend, National Folk Festival, Dashville Skyline Festival, and supported country-blues artist Eilen Jewell (USA) along all VIC shows of her 2018 AUS tour.
2017’s Heaven Knows EP, earned Georgia State Line the title of “one of Australia’s best up-and-coming country acts” (Art News Portal). Drawing comparisons with the likes of Linda Ronstadt, title track Heaven Knows captures Delves’ empathic rumination on the bittersweet balancing act of growing up and staying young. It highlights her songwriting finesse in a way that puts to rest any assumption that this twenty-something wordsmith is yet to reach the milestones necessary to write songs so complex and meaningful. As previous single Older Than I Am suggests, Delves is most certainly wise beyond her years.
Georgia State Line toured nationally in late 2018 in support of new music released via MGM (Metropolitan Groove Merchants). The group spent April of this year recording their debut album, with the release scheduled for early 2020.
