ALTHOUGH the album ‘The Past is a Passenger’ by Georgia Cortes Rayner was released in March of 2022, an official album launch party was put on hold due to the unpredictability of the COVID pandemic.

Georgia, who has called Scotts Head home since 2004, told News Of The Area, “Times seem a little less volatile now so it is time to get out there and play this album live.”

The launch and party for the release of The Past is a Passenger is going to be on Friday 20 January 2023, at Studio 3 Live at the Tewinga Studios of 2NVR.

“I can’t think of a better place to have this launch than at our local Nambucca Valley community radio station that is so supportive of our creative community,” Georgia said.

The Past is a Passenger was recorded at Soundshed Studios at Valla, produced by the dynamic Stewart Peters and is a collection of songs about life, love, loss, family, environmental angst and survival inspired by the past, the present and the future.

The songs cross a range of styles and genres from hip hop, blues, country, rock and folk.

Although Georgia is normally a solo performer, the studio production layered more instrumentation to her work and allowed Stewart Peters to work his musical and production magic to bring colour and all manner of grooves to what is ultimately a set of tracks that leaves the listener in a ‘feel good’ place.

At the 20 January album launch Georgia Cortes Rayner will not only play the songs for the live studio audience and those listening at home, she will tell the stories behind each song.

The event will be hosted by 2NVR’s Ceri Wrobel, who told News Of The Area, “Everyone is invited to be part of the live audience at the album launch party and it is a great idea to bring your own drinks and nibbles along.”

The album launch is open to the public free of charge at the Tewinga Studios of 2NVR and will begin at 6:00pm on Friday 20 January 2023 and will go through until 8:00pm.

Should you be unable to come along, the performance will be broadcast live on 105.9FM and streamed via
