Georgie Rogers is an established and multifaceted broadcaster, music journalist, voiceover artist, DJ and credible tastemaker in alternative and electronic music.  Where to start! For 15 years she regularly contributed her warmth, knowledge and passion on air on BBC Radio 6 Music, her spiritual and radio home where she could often be heard bantering with Shaun Keaveny and several of the network's primetime presenters. Georgie was home grown there after being scouted on the red carpet at the NME Awards in 2008 to write the Music News for the website and soon cut her teeth as a broadcaster becoming a known voice to the listeners who enjoyed her many interviews and investigative pieces with some of the biggest names in music. She's had the pleasure of time with many of her heroes Led Zeppelin, Mick Fleetwood, Sir Paul McCartney, Cat Power, James Murphy and even Ryan Gosling!  Her start in radio followed an English and Drama degree at Birmingham University and early work at XFM, presenting for Jersey's Channel 103, Diesel U Music, Strongroom Alive, Brighton Festival Radio and Amazing Radio, with her national DAB Amazing Breakfast being featured in The Guardian by Elisabeth Mahoney and again by Miranda Sawyer, as well as Cooler Magazine. Georgie would then find herself back at XFM (where she'd interned and landed her first paid job in radio six years previously) in 2012 as a DJ anchoring specialist shows and covering across the schedule for four years. She first landed her own Friday overnight slot, covered overnights and weekends, later doing long stints on the weekday 7-10pm specialist evening show and John Kennedy's X-Posure new music programme. As things at XFM rebranded to Radio X she pitched and secured her own Music Discovery show on the newly launching Virgin Radio UK in 2015 presenting, curating and self-producing a Sunday night new music show for two years to the end of 2017.  Testament to her character, contacts, dedication and passion for great music her show guest list included Death From Above, Jessie Ware, Blondie, Pond, The Maccabees, Wild Beasts, Joe Goddard, Sylvan Esso, All Them Witches and so many more. She also invited many artists to play sessions including Aldous Harding, Nadine Shah, Fink, Zola Blood, Nick Mulvey, Flamingods and Tame Impala's Cameron Avery. Nowadays Soho Radio provides a home for her monthly Music Discovery shows. Georgie's work as a spokesperson on music stories continues spanning various networks including BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4, Woman's Hour, BBC 5 Live, BBC News TV, BBC Breakfast, ITV, Channnel 5 and Sky News. You may have seen her on Netflix in 2023 as a contributor on the feature Adele: 30 Greatest Moments. In 2019 the Super Women platform she co-founded with filmmaker Alice Smith became an outlet for making and presenting documentaries and telling kickass stories of kickass women on film, while offering mentoring opportunities.  Georgie is an entertaining host having compered and helmed festival stages, competitions or social media content for brands like Mixcloud, Vevo, Rolling Stones' Exhibitionism launch at the Saatchi Gallery, Vevo, Fender, BMW, Mutt, Barbour International, Record Store Day, Beavertown Brewery, Standon Calling, 7 Dials Soundtrack and The Selector for the British Council. As a voiceover artist she has put her warm, husky and textured tones to major TV and Radio campaigns with Avon, Mitchum, Pantene, Revlon, Superdrug, Wisdom, Film 4, Benadryl and BBC Four. When DJing, her decks time has resulted in sets ranging from Glastonbury's Shangri La to the great hall of the V&A Museum, lake stages to big tops and even mountain tops as is the case at Meadows in the Mountains in Bulgaria, where she's been asked back three times. After several years cutting her teeth as a resident at the successful house and disco club nights in East London (2011-2017), which she ran with a small crew, she is well-versed at reading rooms and tearing up the dance floor. Her credits also include spinning tunes for Spiritland, Whistles, Google, Facebook, Topshop, Crack Magazine, Mac Cosmetics, Benefit Make-Up, London Fashion Week parties, Little Gay Brother and Dr Martens at venues like Dalston Superstore, the Ace Hotel, 76 Dean Street Soho House and Number 90 in Hackney Wick. Her decks time is usually an opportunity to shell out the disco bangers or indulge in all things electronic.  Georgie is right at home mixing an eclectic bunch of house, disco, techno, afrobeat, progressive selections, exotic grooves, percussive beats and everything in between. An intuitive and versatile DJ, wherever she's commandeering the decks she knows how to uplift the crowd and get a party started.
