Thought-provoking songwriting, hypnotic stage presence, George Maple is our kind of a girl. For one, the Aussie-born, London-based artist specialises in a fluid, finely tuned blend of between-the-sheets R&B and downtempo dance grooves.
For another, when Noisey asked her to reflect on the recurring themes in her songs, she responded, “Sex, I guess,” before astutely adding: “It drives us to do the most absurd things. It's intertwined with so many parts of our life without us even realising it: power, money, relationships, love, lust, desire, sin, safety, vulnerability.”
As a live performer, Maple has sold out shows across Australia, in L.A. and in London, appeared at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and The Warehouse Project, and performed alongside the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and our true-loves: Flight Facilities. George Maple’s captivating performances feature her breathtaking voice accompanied by live electronics, moving from ecstatic, energetic highs, soul shaking bass and moments of honest raw intimacy.Yeow.
With singles “Where You End and I Begin” and “Gemini” - her monster collaboration with What So Not - her writing and production credits also include artists like Hayden James, Snakehips, Flight Facilities, Flume, and Tkay Maidza, racking up over 70 million Soundcloud plays across the board.
Rocking gold on her knuckles like a baller, George Maple sits comfortably well after dark, a sultry figure to greet you in the pink shade of the Ampi string lights. Get grimey.
