Curtain to Come Down on Colony, Famous Times Square Music Store | By Kenneth Jones

“Music director and composer Georgia Stitt told, “I’m in London this week and I just walked past Dress Circle, which closed its doors last week. Seeing the announcement that New York’s Colony Records is also closing is shocking and sad. It’s definitely the end of an era. When my songbook [“This Ordinary Thursday”] came out in 2007, the first place I went to look for it was Colony. In my mind, I wasn’t validated as a published songwriter until I saw my book on their shelves.” Read More…

The Juggler Interviews, #10: Georgia Stitt

The Writing Life x3 | Patrick Gabridge

“I always challenge myself to write about things in ways I haven’t heard them said before. And as I entered this phase of my life and my career, I realized that most of the songs about mothers and children were written by men. (I mean, come on, most of the songs about everything are written by men.) So I figured I had this unique opportunity to describe something that was very real and all-consuming to me with a voice that was truthful but under-represented.” Read More…

Robert Creighton: Ain’t We Got Fun!

Talkin’ Broadway | By Rob Lester

“Vintage, vaudeville-y numbers populate this strong and sweet album, but they neither creak nor get loaded down with gimmicky modernization. Much of the credit for that must go to versatile Georgia Stitt who created the majority of the arrangements and orchestrations and plays piano. She also produced the CD, which slides right into the early 20th century, reflecting and honoring the old-timey era without leaning on button-pushing nostalgia pastiche. There’s a freshness and bright energy in the musical settings, playing and the singing that leaps out and is exhilarating, while respect for the olden, golden days is evident.” Read More…

ON THE RECORD: Georgia Stitt’s “My Lifelong Love,” Jason Graae’s Perfect Hermany and the West End’s Marigold

Playbill | By Steven Suskin

“Here is another collection of intriguing, intelligent, well-crafted songs. My favorite track on the new CD, thus far, is the title song, “My Lifelong Love” (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). Or maybe “Kites and Children” (Anika Noni Rose), written to celebrate the second birthday of Stitt’s daughter. Not to overlook “Not Yet” (Heidi Blickenstaff). Those three, as it happens, have music and lyrics by Stitt” Read More…
