New Anti-Valentine’s Day Release For Singer/Songwriter Paterson

South Wales based singer/songwriter Paterson is set to release her anti-love track ‘Smug and Married’ just in time for Valentine’s Day 2019 with a release date on DSP for February 14, via Distrokid.    

After a hiatus, Paterson has come back full force with her new release ‘Smug and Married’, taking inspiration from a huge catalogue of folk legends such as Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Melissa Ferrick and Brandi Carlile. Georgia crafts music overflowing with metaphors and poetry that speaks universally whilst simultaneously encapsulating deep personal experiences and sage like epiphanies.

Paterson is the latest incarnation of South Wales based singer/songwriter Georgia Paterson. Having worked extensively in the genre as a solo act Georgia felt that as her new material seemed inspired by collaborations a new slimmed down name would be appropriate given then paired down yet provocative nature of the songs.  Throughout her career Georgia has supported Amy Wadge (Grammy Award Winning Co-writer for Ed Sheeran), plus  festivals and events involved with LGBTQ including Oxford, Swindon & Wiltshire Pride.

The new single ‘Smug and Married’ is a toe tapping anti-love anthem, written for the ones tormented by the sickening ritual of Valentine’s Day. It tells the story of agony, when falling in love with a straight married woman and is cleverly conveyed with bluesy piano, jazz trumpets and self-assuring sarcasm.

Paterson’s music celebrates the LGBTQ community and her involvement has been recognised by Diva Magazine, Lezbelib Magazine, Buzz Magazine and has been given ‘Track of the Week’ on BBC Radio Wales.
