I can still tell you the first time I saw Georgia Fair live.
Severely hungover after four days of partying hard in L.A. in the lead-up to SXSW, I had my first taste at The Aussie BBQ – LA showcase, as the latest wicked Aussie talent took to the global stage.
Instantly captivated, Georgia Fair swiftly became a part of my USA tour listening rotation, shooting them live twice in the next week in Austin (TX) at the Sounds Australia – Sound Gallery on 6th St and The Aussie BBQ – Official SXSW Showcase.
Now Georgia Fair are back with their latest single ‘Love Free Me’ and I couldn’t be more excited!
Recorded in Los Angeles, ‘Love Free Me’ evokes exciting flashbacks of my first music biz trip to the USA earlier this year and yes this edgy, folk rock jam has me soaring!

Every now & then you hear a sweet summer jam that ignites candy in your heels & a song in your heart.. this is one of those jams..
I stumbled across Sue-Anne Stewart’s ‘Love Gets Sweeter’ in March at The Aussie BBQ – LA on the gem of a CD sampler I picked up from Footstomp Music (Busby Marou, The Medics). Quite swiftly, along with Thelma Plum‘s ‘Around Here’, Ginger & The Ghost‘s ‘Where Wolf’ and more, Sue-Anne’s ‘Love Gets Sweeter’ formed part of the soundtrack and sweet vibe that was to be my Hot & Delicious: SXSW & LA. Roadtrip USA experience.
Her smooth, clear vocals, light guitars and beautiful, melodic keys are rather reminiscent of Sheryl Crow and the track is the first single just released off Sue-Anne’s upcoming album produced by Anthony Lycenko (Pete Murray, Busby Marou). Sue-Anne Stewart has shared the stage with the likes of Ash Grunwald, Lanie Lane and Mat McHugh (The Beautiful Girls), toured Australia, Europe and Canada (incl. Calgary Stampede, Woodford Folk Festival) and launches ‘Love Gets Sweeter’ next Friday May 10th at the Footstomp Music showcase Our Band Could Be Your Life #2 – The Roots Edition at The Tempo Hotel in Brisbane’s iconic Fortitude Valley.
This ‘little ray of sunshine’ makes me feel like I’m hittin’ the surf in Byron with a light breeze, blue skies and the summer sun on my back.. now if only I knew how to surf.. Charlie don’t surf
