Today – 11th December 2020 – marks the release of I Will Still Remember, the emphatic debut from 17-year-old Jeorgia Rose. Hailing from Cheshire in the UK’s north-west, Jeorgia discovered a love for music when she began learning the piano aged 6. A multi-talented musician, Jeorgia grew up playing the piano, harp, flute and guitar.
After being discovered by Grammy award-winning writer Femke Weidema and mentor Neal Handforth, she has worked hard to develop her songwriting and performance. In true 2020 style, Jeorgia wrote I Will Still Remember during a lockdown writing session over FaceTime with Femke and Neal. Inspired by a summer romance, the lyrics look back at all the memories shared together with the realisation that as the summer comes to an end, so too will the relationship.
Musically, this song sounds like a throwback. There are plenty of 1990s and early 2000s influences evident in the song’s composition, from the sound of the guitars carrying the melody to the toe-tapping, finger-clicking beat. It’s a love song with a twist; the story is told from a post-breakup perspective and looks back fondly on the memories, making Jeorgia Rose’s debut unique in a class saturated by heartbreak ballads.
“I’m excited (and a little nervous) for people to finally hear this song. (…) The music was recorded in Nashville which is like a dream come true for me.”
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Taylor Swift, Cassadee Pope and Little Big Town, Jeorgia writes songs to help her navigate life and is committed to bringing country music to a younger and wider audience in the UK. I Will Still Remember is accompanied by an immersive music video which is part of the BETA launch for new brand, Viktrs, an exciting new technology, set to be the future of music videos.
“The video was so much fun to make, and I feel honoured to be part of the Viktrs BETA launch as one of the first artists releasing a video using this new tool… I can’t wait for you to see what this technology can do… it will blow your mind!”
