A passionate and dedicated musician, Georgia Weber describes herself as “married to her bass”. Her affinity to her instrument, style and genre has been inspired by jazz luminaries Scott LaFaro and Charlie Haden. A musical open-mindedness allowed Weber to develop a unique sound, which has painted the lower register for some of the world’s most renowned jazz artists.
Weber graduated with a bachelor in Jazz Double Bass Performance from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Australia, in 2004. She worked in Brisbane Australia as a performer, session musician and teacher until moving to Melbourne, Australia in 2010. Here, she fronted pop-punk outfit A Date With Apathy.
Weber resided in Melbourne for three years where she performed most significantly with the contemporary jazz group, Ben Carr Trio. This trio explores the amalgamation of free form group improvisation, odd time meter grooves and swing.
Weber moved to New York City in March 2013 where she continues to perform and record with artists such as Post Modern Jukebox's Robyn Adele, established comic and jazz vocalist Camille Harris, The Morning Sea and her own trio, Georgia Weber and The Sleeved Hearts. Weber was a finalist in the 2015 Australian National Jazz Awards.
