Album Notes
Georgie Jessup’s songwriting is influenced by everything from old school country to Memphis R&B, placing her music firmly in the “cosmic” Americana Music genre. Her lyrics reflect her outspoken advocacy for animal rights, Native American issues, transgender rights and environmental sanity. The subject of an award winning documentary film, “Woman in A Man’s Suit,” Georgie also has four, well received, CDs available. “Georgie sings from the heart, like a rare flower in a wilderness,” says blues diva Candye Kane. “She speaks to us about the deepest issues. Issues that all of us should care about, but so many of us pretend don’t affect us.”

Now Georgie releases a four song EP of Christmas songs that has something for everyone who loves the holidays! The EP starts with Xmas Time In Jessup; a murder ballad / Christmas song that ole Johnny Cash himself would have loved! Next is a more traditional Christmas song [Christmas Without You] hoping for a loved ones return for the holidays. Even Tony Bennett could sing this one! Dear Santa follows. This nice old school R&B horn flavored song will make you smile. The Ep ends with When Santa Was A Pagan. The song makes the point that Santa's story is related to more than the standard Christmas dogma we have all been conditioned to believe.

This EP makes a great stocking stuffer and helps promote Independent Performing Songwriters! Thanks for your support!

The spirit of giving
These four songs are musically delightful with lyrics that serve as a reminder that the spirit of giving lives in everyone and in all faiths. Not everyone is joyous at this time of the year though. These songs tell the story of someone missing a loved one no longer with them or of someone doing time in prison however just or unjust. Some have either done serious wrong or have simply stood up for what's right. Laws can change and must for the greater good. So, wrap up your family's gifts to this music as I did, or take a break by the fire with some hot chocolate, marshmallows and a heart!


Yes! thanks for the Merry Xmas!
Wow this four song EP packs a great holiday punch!!!! It has something for everyone. A little bit country a little bit R&B. By far my favorite holiday album of the year! I am buying five more for stocking stuffers in 2017.
