This week's Matinee will feature Georgie Jessup.
Georgie Jessup, a Baltimore area songwriter, is influenced by everything from old school country to Memphis R&B, placing her music firmly in the “cosmic” Americana Music genre. Her lyrics reflect her outspoken advocacy for animal rights, Native American issues, transgender rights and environmental sanity.
She has an extraordinary ability to encourage audiences to look deeply into their prejudices and other transgressions. Consequently, audiences tend to respond emotionally, if not always lovingly. Georgie has developed a successful career by challenging musical styles, personal identifications, and storybook history lessons. She has released six CD’s: American Holocaust, Sweet Grass Smoke, Winkte & Crazy Sacred Dogs, Woman in A Man’s Suit, Working Class Hero, and Philosopher Dogs.
