The singer/songwriter played the city as part of a Canadian tour. Following the Canadian dates, she’ll play a series of shows in Europe.
Georgas is on tour in support of her new album For Evelyn. Songs from the album include the single “Lost Cause”. Upon its June release, the album has enjoyed critical acclaim. NOW (Toronto), Exclaim!, Q, the Boston Globe, NPR Music and more have weighed in with positive reviews. The album is named after her grandmother, who will turn 99 in December.
For Evelyn, and before
Georgas released her debut album in 2009. Two more full-lengths, including This is Good (2010) and Hannah Georgas (2012)), followed.
Sara Bareilles, Kathleen Edwards and City and Colour are among the acts with whom she has toured. Also, the hit HBO show Girls featured her song “Millions” (over the end credits of Episode 6, Season 3). And she has won numerous awards and racked up multiple nominations, including four Juno nominations in Canada.
Georgas is originally from Newmarket, Ontario. She moved to Victoria, B.C. to attend university. While there, she demo’d a bunch of songs. Encouraged by musician friends, she released the EP The Beat Stuff in 2009. Consequently, she moved to Vancouver for a decade before moving back to Ontario. There, she worked with Graham Walsh, of Toronto “analog electronic combo” Holy Fuck, on the new album.
