Meet MOVE. MOVE started organically when Jordan, Kane and the twins Andy and Tom began living together at their Australian beachside HQ, a run down apartment doomed for demolition. By taking their creativity to the walls, they formed a den in which MOVE was found and have gone on to play shows all around Australia. After relocating to NYC for the better half of 2009, MOVE have now based themselves out of London where they have begun recording their debut EP due out late 2010.
Leading an eclectic lifestyle as a session musician, antique dealer and youth theatre worker, Claudia Georgette has developed an unstoppable lust for storytelling. Her wonderfully anecdotal, and often satirical accounts of modern London life bounce playfully off the nostalgic tone of the Jazzy-Folk instrumentation, inspired by her patchwork heritage from France, Ireland and Argentina. With her tongue placed firmly in cheek and a stunning voice to boot, she shares her thoughts of a life less ordinary with striking theatricality.
