Interview: "I Know" by Georgia Winter
Q: Congratulations on the release of ‘I Know’! Can you share what inspired you to write this song?
Georgia: Thank you! "I Know" was inspired by a nostalgic late night post lockdown, sitting with my laptop and humming over an ambient synth. I was in a deep memory of that bittersweet feeling of having to let go of something that you know has passed its time. Closing chapters at 2am.
Q: What is your songwriting process like?
Georgia: I usually establish a home for the track to sit in first, usually done by creating textures and soundscapes with production. From here I develop the feeling and the story that I want to tell, throwing down some melodies over the track and fitting the lyrical structure of that (I often lean towards a sort of Swedish pop approach to songwriting). Once i've moulded the lyrics to the melody, i'll layer everything up!
Q: What made you want to pursue a career in music?
Georgia: I was brought up on 2000's pop culture: Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Timberland. I remember summer days blasting "Way I Are" by Nelly Furtado and Timberland, wishing I could do something that made me feel as good as I did when I listened to that song. From there I got into rock and started playing drums at the age of 12 (which I still do now- I do some session work with Suki Waterhouse). My own artist project was formed by all these influences.
Q: What is your favorite album of all time?
Georgia: It changes daily... right now i've got to say "Juno" by Remi Wolf. It's so out of the box, I love it.
Q: If you could perform with any artist in the world, who would you pick and why?
Georgia: Billie Eilish. Her visuals surrounding her sonic landscape are insane, i'd love to be a part of that.
Q: What can we expect next from you? We can’t wait to hear more!
Georgia: Justin Bieber meets Joan Jett, dipped in 2000's pop. I'm excited to share!
