Awards and achievements[edit]

Their song "Girl You Never Knew", taken from their debut Hello Stranger EP was named “Song Of The Day” by Popjustice on 6 August 2008 who said it was "one Grey's Anatomy soundtrack appearance away from being an international hit single."[1]

It also claimed “Song Of The Day” on 29 August 2008[2] and “Song Of The Week” for the week of 29 August[3] on the Record Of The Day website, who called it "a simple, restrained, haunting ballad which sounds classic but not dated".


Georgia Wonder’s first BBC radio appearance was on "whispering" Bob Harris's BBC Radio 2 show on 27 January 2007 when he played the track ‘Hello Stranger’.[4] He followed this up by playing their unreleased track ‘Two Weeks To Live’ during the following show on 3 February 2007.[5]

They have also performed live on BBC Radio Solent and BBC Southern Counties Radio.[6]
