Discography


PHILOSOPHER DOGS due fall of 2013: "Philosopher Dogs reflects my musical and lyrical influences. Everything
from The Band, Gram Parsons and old school country to the Beatles and Stax
Memphis soul is in there." Georgie Jessup

WORKING CLASS HERO: This "basement recording" released in 2007 is a seven song EP. "Petie's Song (They Killed My DogMa)" is an underground classic and I dare you to listen just once to "It Takes Nothing" with singer songwriter Skribe providing contemporary back ups on the chorus. The John Lennon cover of Working Class Hero is infectious and has to be among the top five covers of this song!

WOMAN IN A MAN'S SUIT: released in 2006. A love story that takes the listener on the "hero's jounrey" and cross many paths. The songwriting visits many styles but they are all tied together in a beautifully crafted studio album with lyrics that set Georgie apart from the rest of the pack. The title cut is amazing in the journey one song alone can take the listener on!

AMERICAN HOLOCAUST: released in 1994. This album contains ten songs that address the genocide that took place against the Indigenous People of Turtle Island at the will of the Untied States of America. Flat out genocide, cultural genocide to Reservation life today and everything in between is addressed on this studio CD. It drew the attention of the Indian Summer Music Awards and was nominated for the Native Spirit award in 2004. IN 2005 and 2006 it won Georgie the Silver Arrow award for her contributions to Native American Music!
