Shadowing the death of her sister in 2012, Georgia Spain found her voice and a way to make sense of the senseless through songwriting and performing. Following her debut EP ‘Precious Company’ (2015) she has been performing nationally and internationally with her band and has just released her debut full length album ‘Trouble Isn’t Something You Can Hold’: a powerful rumination on the effects of death and loss, with songs that stem from a deeply personal place.
The album is about looking inwards at familial relationships following a major loss, new love, and looking outwards at the disturbing turns the world is taking in a time of social, political and earthly crisis. Spain’s live performances are charged with a rare sense of rawness and vulnerability and through this openness Spain finds a way to connect to audiences on a deeper-than-surface level. For Spain’s live performances, she is joined by fellow songwriters Oscar Lush (drums) and Matthew Colin (bass), who offer sparse, considered accompaniments.
