Georgia Feroce was born a singer in Shelton, Connecticut. Her parents named her after the song, "Georgia Rae" by John Hiatt, and it seems only right that she was singing before she could talk. Georgia's passion for music continued to grow throughout her childhood and early teenage years when she began piano lessons and music theory. Ever since she can remember, Georgia was writing poems and jingles that she would perform in front of the family camcorder. Throughout high school she continued writing songs, usually late at night, putting her ideas in a notebook she kept in her nightstand.
Although music was always a passion for Georgia, she was unsure whether to pursue music as a career. She entered college as "undecided" but it wasn't long before she found herself back at the piano and learning guitar. Her four years at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island, is where she began doing open mic's on campus and around the small seaside town with a music history of its own. Georgia became known for singing the National Anthem before many of the college's sporting events as well as the Newport Gulls, the the local summer league baseball team. She declares the Star Spangled Banner is her favorite song, and she recently had the honor of singing the anthem before a Los Angeles Galaxy soccer game.
Having moved across the country in January 2015, Georgia is fully committed to a life she always dreamed. Just like her start in Rhode Island, Georgia researched the local open mic's in Los Angeles and never looked back. Her unique voice, honest lyrics and catchy melodies have helped cement herself as a favorite up-and-coming artist around Los Angeles. Georgia recently recorded her first EP, Cat & Mouse, with Los Angeles/Nashville producer, Josh "Tone" Weaver, which consists of five songs, including the single, "Cat & Mouse."
"People love that song. It's one of the first songs I wrote when I got to LA, and I think there is just something fresh and special about it that connects with people... or just gets stuck in their heads!"
