Georgie Aué (pronounced a-way) is a genre-blending Australian pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. Her unique sound is a melting pot of styles – fusing jazz and blues with Brazilian jazz.
Drawing on the influences of Antônio Carlos Jobim, Elis Regina, Diana Krall, Stevie Wonder and Norah Jones, expect Latin American rhythms, sweet jazz harmonies, and a whole lotta groove.
Georgie began writing music from an early age. Her parents recall the bits of paper she would leave around her home covered in a child’s scrawl. In combination with her love of dancing and her mum and dads collection of Brazilian music, she developed a love for Latin music, a passion she continued to carry while studying piano and jazz at the Elder Conservatorium of Music in Adelaide.
Georgie’s life is jazz. When she’s not performing her original music in jazz clubs or playing Fringe shows and tributes to Norah Jones and The Beatles around Australia, she is the Festival Producer for WA’s leading jazz showcase – the Perth International Jazz Festival. And she’s grown up with it too.
The endless days of summer in Western Australia, the ups and downs of love in all forms of relationships, and a passion for the natural environment were all inspiration for her third album ‘Desert Cry’. Written and recorded in Perth and her hometown of Adelaide, it’s a record rich in rhythm, texture, and harmony – a joyful world to get lost in.
