Description

Eagerly-awaited second album from highly-acclaimed Welsh chanteuse, recently heard on Manic Street Preacher's 'Futurology' album. Georgia's debut album, 'Week of Pines' won the 2013 Welsh Music Prize and she was a nominee in the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (for 'Best Traditional Track' and the 'Horizons Award'). Writing in the Independent, Andy Gill called the album "a dazzling debut, rich with sweet pain and joy" whilst Simon Price (in the Independent on Sunday) noted that it "could have been made in 1968. In the loveliest possible way." Folk Roots magazine noted that "while Sandy Denny, Bert Jansch and Van Morrison all linger on the horizon, Georgia Ruth comes over as more of a true original than most of the young hopefuls roaming these isles," before concluding that the record was a "true delight." Robin Denselow praised Georgia's "exquisite, gently powerful" version of Welsh sea shanty 'Codi Angor' in his Guardian review, and a few months later, in a live review for the same publication: "On this showing, she's one of the British folk discoveries of the year." Though no less Georgia's new album, Fossil Scale is a giant step forward - a gorgeous, inventive, hybrid mix of pop, electronica and folk that will likely appeal to fans of St Vincent, Feist and Bat For Lashes. In 2014 Williams made a guest appearance on Divine Youth, a track on the Manic Street Preachers album Futurology in 2014. She was also involved in the Ghazalaw project with Gwyneth Glyn and Tauseef Akhtar, whose debut album was released in 2015 on Cerys Matthews's label Marvels of the Universe.
