Love Without A Bulletproof Vest – Georgie Neilsen

Event Description

Do you have a number one heartbreak?

That heartbreak that makes you re-evaluate how much and who you give access to your heart. That heartbreak that leaves you wondering if your heart will ever recover and find another heart that fits perfectly with yours, like theirs did. Or are you the heartbreaker? The one that got away.

Whichever one you are, the heartbroken or the heartbreaker, we all walk away with the same thing. Memories and a playlist to match.

We revisit these memories through music from time to time. Each song connects us back to those moments that are sometimes impossible to explain with just words. It is almost as if these songs were made especially for us to tell the story of a love that left a mark. The love we forgot to wear our bulletproof vest for.

About the Artists

Georgie Neilsen is a 20 year old Indie pop/rock/folk singer-songwriter raised in the humble suburbs of Brisbane. She began singing in a family band at the age of 14 and has fronted the recently disbanded Georgie Neilsen and the Growing Pains since 2017.

With the Growing Pains, Georgie frequented venues in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, supporting artists such as The Jensens and Donny Benét, as well as featuring on festival lineups, including: Sunlit Sounds, the Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, and the Hidden Lanes Festival. Georgie has an abundance of experience as a session vocalist, and has worked alongside numerous Brisbane bands including Strange Seed, Great Sage, and the up and coming Action Slacks.

In 2019, Georgie was fortunate enough to appear in the cast of Women in Voice, alongside Jenny Wynter, Queenie van de Zandt, Alison St. Ledger, Pauline Maudy and her mother, Barb Fordham. 

Inspired by artists such as Florence and the Machine, The Preatures, Haim, and Fleetwood Mac, Georgie has found songwriting and singing to be an important outlet, using her songs derived from real experiences to express truth, purpose, and vulnerability.
