Georgia Van Etten performs Take My Hand in exclusive music session – Telegraph.co.uk
Soul/blues singer Georgia van Etten is no stranger to challenges.Â
In 2014, the plucky Australian decided to leave her home in Melbourne with nothing more than aÂ suitcase in an attempt to forge her musical career.
The problem was she didnât have any musical connections.
Fast forward three years, and she is now enthralling audiences around the world with her refreshing creativity and rich vocal tones, at venues and eventsÂ such as Ronnie Scottâs, the Montreux Jazz FestivalÂ and the Porretta Soul Festival.
Together with a Â 10-piece band, van Etten recorded three live music sessions at The Pool Studio, London, which perfectly showcased her great vocal delivery as well as her unique blend of soul and sass.Â
The first song, Take My Hand, which is released on June 30, brings together jazz improvisation with a country/blues and breathes new life into old standards.Â
