As part of the rollout for her latest album Overload, soulful songstress Georgia Anne Muldrow graced the NPR Music offices with a stirring Tiny Desk Concert performance. Fans without the NPR plug finally get to experience the passionate vocalist showcase reworked versions of tracks from the album, while she embodies all the authenticity and affection of each note.
Backed by bassist Bronson Garza, drummer Renaldo Elliott and keyboardist Mokichi, Georgia delivers a performance where it is nearly impossible not to feel every bit of emotion she serves. Surrounded by the cluttered Tiny Desk backdrop, she remains the focal point with accentuated vocals and animated movements. She opens with the title track of the album, and follows it by introducing her “muse and purpose,” her partner in love, life and music Dudley Perkins (aka DECLAIME) to the “stage.” Viewers are then treated to a sweet duet performance of “Flowers” from his 2003 album A Lil Light. She closes out the performance with an extended, more jazzy version of her single “Ciao.” While the track first appeared on her 2015 instrumental LP Oligarchy Sucks as one of the only tracks on the project featuring vocals, it has since resurfaced as the final track on Overload.
