Biography

[1] Fruit du métissage culturel du 18ème, l’un des quartiers parisiens les plus cosmopolites, Georgio prolonge dignement cette école d’écriture popularisée par la Scred Connexion, Flynt.
Plus jeune que ces derniers et représentant une nouvelle génération, Georgio se fait connaître en 2012 avec un EP en téléchargement gratuit. Il sort le 6 mai 2013 son premier EP physique”Soleil d’hiver” épaulé par Hologram Lo (de 1995). Cet opus se démarque par sa variété et la versatilité de Georgio, à l’aise tant sur des titres intimistes que sur des morceaux plus acerbes.

[2] Raised in Minneapolis, Georgio played a variety of instruments and did everything on his records (producer, arranger, and so on), like Prince - someone he was often compared to (“another clone !”). It is said that in the mid-80’s, he managed to give demos to Prince, and that he could have been signed on Paisley Park - but according to him, Prince and Brownmark wanted to use him as a simple singer, and so he rejected the deal (another version of the story is that he simply wanted too much money). Anyway, he financed the recording and release of his first single, the really Prince-like ‘Sexappeal’, which was finally picked up for release by Motown, allowing him to be signed on the famous label. Then he scored with several housey/funky dance tracks (most notably Tina Cherry and Lover’s Lane), and released three albums until the beginning of the 90’s, his success slowly diminishing.
