From her first record, Worthnothings (2006), Georgia Anne Muldrow’s been blazing her own trail through the music universe. If you’re a genre adherent, she’s first and foremost a hip/hop artist, but there’s something deeper, broader, otherworldly going on with her sound. To conveniently consign her to one category doesn’t do her — or any of us music lovers — justice.

From the first hit, her voice is smooth, timeless, evocative of some of the finest names in jazz/soul history. There’s a seductive warmth and pure soulfulness to her beats that’ll put you immediately at ease. But don’t be lulled into thinking she’s just another RnB singer. There’s a simmering socio-political intensity to her lyrics, and real musical complexity to the beats and arrangements she creates.

Georgia has worked with Black Milk, Flying Lotus, Big Pooh, Erykah Badu and Dwight Trible, among others. She’s been produced by her husband, Dudley Perkins, and Madlib. But no matter who she’s in the studio with, her unmistakeable sound and musicality shine through.

As Mos Def says about her, "She’s incredible. She’s like Flack, Nina Simone, Ella, she’s something else. She’s like religion. It’s heavy, vibrational music. I’ve never heard a human being sing like this. Her voice is wildly, finely expressive. It’s so singular. It’s hip-hop, the way that she approaches it rhythmically, she’s got so many jazz influences. It’s something else and you can just feel it.”
