Georgia Mulligan had barely sung aloud in front of anyone until the age of 21.
A background in visual arts and a long term interest in film, literature and writing had always kept her creative interest alive, but the discovery of artists like Cat Power, Sharon van Etten and Nick Cave in her late teens inspired her to begin exploring her voice as a vehicle for expression.
This new-found passion along with the encouragement of friends resulted in her picking up a guitar to write her first songs and begin performing at open mic nights around Sydney.
in 2016 she released her debut EP, Our Blood to Part, which received regular rotation on Fbi Radio, 2 Ser and Triple J. 2016 also saw Mulligan gather her first band lineup as she was invited to support touring artists including Eleanor Friedburger (US), Julia Jacklin, Laura Jean and Nadia Reid. The following years saw her continue to hone her writing skills and her live performance, with appearances at Fairgrounds Festival, St Kilda Festival and BigSound 2018.
In 2019 she joined Julia Jacklin's Crushing World Tour as a member of her backing band as well as performing solo in support of Jacklin's sold out run of dates in the UK and Ireland.
Her second EP is due for release September 19th. Mirror is a collection of highly personal songs written and recorded across 2017 and 2018 in collaboration with friend and producer Ryan K. Brennan.
