Here is the blurb with more:

Georgia LinesA grand piano matched with a driving rhythm section opens up into an expansive chorus, with powerful vocals and stacked harmonies. Co-written with Grammy-nominated producer Leroy Clampitt (Justin Bieber, Madison Beer, Laufey)Georgia explains that “‘Wayside’ delves into the journey of facing obstacles and uncertainties, urging against complacency and not settling for the easy path. It’s a reminder to stay strong, keep fighting, and hold onto hope, even when things get tough.”

Wayside’ is the third single to be released off her forthcoming debut record THE ROSE OF JERICHO, following ‘Grow Old Without You’ and ‘The Letter’; the latter of which has now spent eight consecutive weeks in New Zealand’s RadioScope charts.

Today’s single gives one last final glimpse into the sonic and emotional landscape of what’s to come, from the full body of work out on June 7.

“I’ve poured a lot of myself into the songwriting of this album,” says Georgia. “It is honest and vulnerable, and dives into places in my own journey which I have written much of the album around. ‘Wayside’ is a significant piece of the larger puzzle, in many ways encapsulating the album’s overarching themes and emotions, giving anyone who listens a sincere glimpse into the journey that has shaped my music.”

Georgia’s success is not surprising, given her impressive track record. Just announced as a finalist for Best Pop Artist for the 2024 AMA’s, she was also named the AMA Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2022. Her EP HUMAN topped the Official Top 20 NZ Album chart, and her lead single ‘Faith’ held the #1 spot on the NZ Airplay Radioscope chart for four consecutive weeks. Her live performances have also received critical acclaim, and she has opened for international acts and performed at various showcases around the world including SXSW, Big Sound and Los Angeles iconic industry showcase, School Night.

Aside from her musical accomplishments, Georgia also hosts a popular music web series called INTROS which is a series in which Georgia introduces her new favourite female and non-binary artists through a relaxed sit-down kōrero.
