Going Places - Washington D.C.'s Georgie James releases an Album of the Year Candidate in September!

The Georgie James song "Cake Parade" begins bathed in sunlight and grace: "The sun is up, looks like the perfect day...." It's a beautiful track capitalized by Laura Burhenn's voice and keys. It is then that you realize the depth of the lyrics. It's a criticism of sending our children off to die in wars and for reasons that barely impact our lives, the bottom line, the front page. It's the kind of song that has been written for as long as there has been wars. But the topicality is fresh and still contemporary in 2007. Timely and beautifully constructed... Bravo!

Burhenn and Davis release an intensely satisfying new album

GEORGIE JAMES - "PLACES"

Georgie James is the duo of Laura Burhenn and John Davis. They are supported by musicians Paul Michel, Michael Cotterman and Andrew Black. The Washington D.C. band is already making noises in the blogs, but the new album "Places" is easily going to be one of the best new albums of the year. (Prepare to hear some of this material crack the thin glass separating indie and mainstream music audiences.) I attribute this to the fact that Davis and Burhenn present songs from numerous styles on the record. In doing so they take a lot of chances. This is a record of winning songs - you are recommended to find out for yourself when the record hits on Sept. 25th. "Places" is a 2007 New Album of the Year Candidate!


BOTH - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Georgie James is a Saddle Creek artist.
