Milan Ring reflects an uncanny intelligence, beauty and musical and creative power almost seemingly given to her from spiritual force from up above. Based in Sydney, not only is she a highly known for her stellar vocal ability but as a guitarist (who is also endorsed by Gibson) and producer, her talents are up to par with industry heavyweights.

We are living in a period of time where musical freedom is at an all time high, yet uniqueness seems to buried underneath a mountain of acts all trying to be the be the next ‘it’ artist by virtually replicating the current trendy star of the moment. Georgia Mason is unique in more ways than a few. The obvious one lies in her vocals. Organically warm, her falsetto voice is like an instrument in itself, played like a lofty jazz musician who well understands his tool. Mason’s next form of uniqueness is situated in her journey.
