Georgina recorded her first CD with support from Jazz FM (CD of the week) and Sir Michael Parkinson.''’till there was you' reached No. 8 in the HMV jazz charts. The critical success of her first album led to Georgina landing her dream job as resident singer with the Ronnie Scotts Jazz Orchestra, where she performs regularly.
