Georgie Jessup is a three time WAMA nominated singer songwriter, and musician of extraordinary passion. S/he has an equally extraordinary ability to encourage audiences to look deeply into their prejudices and other transgressions. Consequently, audiences tend to respond emotionally, if not always lovingly. Georgie has developed a successful career by challenging musical styles, personal identifications, and storybook history lessons. S/he has released three CD’s AMERICAN HOLOCAUST, SWEET GRASS SMOKE, and WINKTE & CRAZY SACRED DOGS and is working on he/r fourth release with co-producer and engineer/musician, Billy Kemp and his band Willbilly.
Austria’s own Big City Indian for their 2003 release Native Heart Urban Soul recorded he/r song, Red Cloud’s Room, from the Sweet Grass Smoke CD.
Georgie’s AMERICAN HOLOCAUST is a controversial CD. The title caused the album to be banned at many radio stations before anyone listened to the music. Those who listened heard carefully crafted songs illuminating the dignity of all people, and they heard an artist pleading for the preservation of a country founded on the principles of life, liberty, and justice for all.
"Georgie sings from the heart, like a rare flower in a wilderness. She speaks to us about the deepest issues. Issues that all of us should care about, but so many of us pretend don’t affect us. Georgie reminds us that we are all related in our human condition and struggle. And Georgie reinforces that we are all trapped by gender and physical being,and that the brightest life and light we have is our soul."
Candye Kane: Sire Records recording star-r&b/blues singer songwriter
We need more artists like (Georgie Jessup) to keep the circle strong. I’m listening to (American Holocaust) CD, I haven’t heard it for a while. I’d forgotten how much energy (Georgie) put into it. Everything, (Georgie) put everything intoit, and it comes through ’Loud n’ Pround’...great work...

Jessup’s songs, with their strong messages and anthemic choruses, make you want to join in even if you have never heard them before...organic and rootsy yet open to the world

thank (Georgie)for caring about what words...can mean to the soul!"

an ambitious undertaking...’Greed’, and ’Let Us Be’ give AMERICAN HOLOCAUST a poignant punctuation...that would make Marlon Brando proud....Truth is, each and every puzzle piece of this ten song opus is a memorial to our original forefather,(Native Americans)
Mark Bound Music Monthly Magazine
prvocative....It, (AMERICAN HOLOCAUST), questions the values that put "progress" before humanity and answers that the only true progress is acting in harmony with earth, sky, plants,animals, and...fellow humans
