This unique combination of artist and curator is what sets ReVoice! apart.  It allies Georgia to a movement of musicians (including Michael Janisch’s Whirlwind, Trish Clowes’ Emulsion, Clark Tracey’s Herts Jazz Festival, Brandon Allen’s Highgate Jazz With Soul, Dave Stapleton’s Edition Records) giving back to their music community and stepping beyond the imposed boundaries of promoter and player.
