Juno nominated Georgette Fry is an award winning singer/songwriter who has garnered widespread national acclaim as one of Canada’s premiere vocalists.

Her debut album “Rites of Passage” received a Juno nomination in 1995. Her second release, “Georgette – Live” earned her: the Jazz Report Award for Blues Musician of the Year and two Real Blues Magazine Awards for Best Canadian Blues Vocalist (1997, 1998). Georgette is also a talented songwriter and seven tracks on her third release, “Let Me Drive”, are Fry originals. Her latest release, “back in a moment..” was released in 2007. It is a collection of jazz inspired ballads and has received excellent reviews. She has received four nominations from Maple Blues Awards for “Female Vocalist of the Year”. In January 2004 she received Real Blues Awards for “Best Blues Songwriter”, “Best Blues Release – Female Artist” (Let Me Drive) and Best Canadian Blues Vocalist (Female). In 2005 she was inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Jack Richardson Music Awards in London, Ontario. In 2006 CBC’s “Saturday Night Blues” awarded her the “Great Canadian Blues Award”. Georgette shares this honour with past winners such as Colin James, Long John Baldry and Colin Linden. Georgette has taken her music to many parts of Canada and as far away as South Africa. She has been honoured to have been included on the Toronto Blues Society’s album “Women’s Blues Revue LIVE” and on CBC’s Saturday Night Blues “20 Year Compilation CD”. “With her luscious singing voice, she explores the soulful grey area between blues and jazz, where artists like Etta James and Ray Charles and Bonnie Raitt have staked their careers.” Sandy MacDonald, Halifax Daily News
