Georgia Wonder is a band of two: Stephanie Grant (vocals) and Julian Moore (music).

They describe their music as “The Carpenters driving Tom Petty to an R.E.M. gig but getting crushed under the wheels of Pink Floyd’s tour bus while arguing over whether to listen to ‘Love Shack’ by the B52’s or ‘Go your own way’ by Fleetwood Mac.”
1. The Girl You Never Knew
2. Hello Stranger
3. Falling Down
4. Would Love To Meet You
Georgia Wonder has been a very innovative and hands on with promoting their own music. They’ve organized the ‘Hello Stranger CD Campaign’ where they’ve left CD copies of their EP all around the UK and beyond asking people who find them to listen to the music, pass it on, and leave a comment on the band’s Facebook page (they are actually up for the Interactive Award for the campaign concept - vote for them!). They’ve created band profiles and uploaded their music to most of the biggest music sites out there, so their fans don’t have to choose a platform to connect with them.
Now Georgia Wonder wants to go a step further and engage the peer-to-peer community by distributing their free EP ‘Hello Stranger’ through FrostWire. You can download and share a torrent that includes the five high-quality MP3s, album art and all the lyrics.
When asked a question about the record industry, Julian Moore said:
The record industry, like so many other media industries, has fragmented so much that a whole different beast is emerging with many different heads. The upside is that emerging artists who are tech savvy can go a very long way on their own, the downside is that this is now expected of you. The ‘record deal’ is now just one of many options an artist has in a world of choices - but it’s been that way for a long time, the internet has just speeded up the proliferation of choice.
The internet is a word of mouth machine, and if you have a new sound or interesting idea it can quickly go viral, which is a hard thing to manufacture - and it can compete with the power of expensive marketing campaigns. So many of the things a record company could do for you can now be done yourself. The industry of being in music is now what is important, which includes all aspects of the ‘music business’. The record industry is dead - long live the business of music.
Georgia Wonder wants you to download their EP, share it with your friends, post comments on their websites, spread the word through your networks, but most of all - enjoy the music.
