Queen Esther and Lee Ann Westover collaborate for a country-tinged performance.

Born from love and admiration of the legendary country music performer George Jones, Georgette reworks well-worn classics from the ladies of 70s country music  – Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Wanda Jackson and more along with a few obscure ditties and original songs from Queen Esther and Lee Ann Westover. The result is a fresh, unexpected sound that embraces a twang-drenched feminist perspective while maintaining its soulful equilibrium.
