Trumping the name of her critically adored debut album, Hannah Georgas has had a better than “Good” year since releasing her debut This Is Good in April, 2010. This Is Good, produced by Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother) and Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, You Say Party, New Pornographers), displays a montage of a self-assured singer-songwriter and rock heroine.
The dynamic Georgas is equally comfortable riling up a club crowd with the aptly named “Dancefloor” as she is melting hearts with cabaret number “Something For You.” Her unmistakable voice carries the weight of moody “Thick Skin,” while also lifting the fist-up-in-the-air attitude of album opener “Chit Chat.”
The Vancouver-based Georgas and her debut have garnered national acclaim that’s almost too numerous to count. The many accolades landing on the long list for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize, recently receiving 2 Juno nominations, gracing the cover of Exclaim! Magazine, being nominated for 2011 XM Verge Awards for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, topping multiple charts on iTunes Canada (Canadiana and Singer Songwriter), nudging elbows in “Best Of” lists such as CBC Radio 2’s top 10 albums of ’10, and snagging the #4 spot on CBC Radio 3’s year end countdown for “Bang Bang You’re Dead” and recently nominated for two Junos.
