Georgia Anne Muldrow (born 1983)[3] is an American musician from Los Angeles, California.[4] AllMusic described her as "one of the most daring and important (albeit underappreciated) artists of her time".[5] In 2008, she co-founded the SomeOthaShip Connect record label with her partner Dudley Perkins.[6]

Life and career[edit]

In 2006, Georgia Anne Muldrow released the debut EP, Worthnothings, on Stones Throw Records.[7] Her first album, Olesi: Fragments of an Earth, was released on the label in that year.[8][9]

She released Seeds, an album entirely produced by Madlib, on SomeOthaShip Connect in 2012.[10]

Style and influences[edit]

Rapper Mos Def said about Muldrow: "She’s incredible. She’s like Flack, Nina Simone, Ella, she’s something else. She’s like religion. It’s heavy, vibrational music. I’ve never heard a human being sing like this. Her voice is wildly, finely expressive. It’s so singular. It’s hip-hop, the way that she approaches it rhythmically, she’s got so many jazz influences. It’s something else and you can just feel it. With Georgia Anne Muldrow Presents Ms. One (SomeOthaShip), she’s like J. Dilla, the legendary producer. She makes her own beats, she rhymes, she sings, and she plays. If people love Amy Winehouse, they’re going to get their minds blown when they hear Georgia Anne Muldrow."[11]
