Honest, agile, and refreshingly self-assured, Georgia State Line’s unique brand of country-infused melancholy yields music that’s equal parts heartsick and hopeful.
Fronted by lauded songwriter Georgia Delves, the Melbourne, Australia-based band melds both vintage and contemporary sounds to craft songs steeped in Tennessee sunsets and the scent of softened leather. Born and raised in the regional Victorian town of Bendigo, Delves was introduced by her grandparents to the ultimately catalystic American country music of the 1960s and 70s. In this, she’d met her match. Armed with her guitar and a book of lyrics heartfelt and resolute, she moved to Melbourne and formed a band.
Georgia State Line has appeared at the National Folk Festival (Canberra, AUS), Dashville Skyline Festival (Belford, AUS), the 2017 Australian Music Week showcase. They've supported acclaimed country-blues artist Eilen Jewell (USA), and in October 2018 will join the bill at Out on the Weekend (Williamstown, AUS).
The band toured nationally in late 2018 in support of new music released via MGM (Metropolitan Groove Merchants), with a new album scheduled for release in 2020.
