Georgia Wonder are Stephanie Grant (vocals) and Julian Moore (music) and come from the UK.
They have released three EPs, 2008's 'Hello Stranger', 2009's 'Destroy' and 2010's 'Made In Nevada'.
'Siren', taken from 'Made In Nevada`>'' enjoyed unprecedented exposure over four weeks on We7.com and was Pop Justice Song Of The Day.
Georgia Wonder's 2009 EP release 'Destroy' was pressed and printed entirely from fan donations, and it's title track was Record Of The Day on the music industry tipsheet of the same name who called it 'another belter - a brilliantly overwrought, theatrical show-stopper of a song'.
Their song 'Girl You Never Knew' taken from their 2008 release 'Hello Stranger' had also previously won this accolade, with Record Of The Day and also Record Of The Week, was the Pop Justice Song Of The Day in August, and was aired on Bliss TV for over three months.
Initilly picked up by the legendary 'whispering' Bob Harris who played their demo's twice in two weeks on his BBC Radio Two saturday night show, Georgia Wonder supported Simply Red's Mick Huckanll on a sell out 7 date UK tour culminating with two dates at London's Ingig02 at the dome. They were warmly received by Simply Red fans both through the Simply Red forums and the gigs themselves, at which they won new admirers and signed an awful lot of CDs.
They also played for the Independence Day celebrations at the US Ambassadors house in Regents Park, London a few months after impressing the audience at the London American Embassy on Obama historic election night win, and also became the 14th most downloaded band in the world for a week in 2009.
