With "Owed to Mama Rickie", GAM gives tribute to the spiritual roots bequethed her by her mother Rickie Byars Beckworth. Owed is another fine example of Georgia's precocious and unique talent. While there really is no other artist that does or sounds like Georgia, one can hear her mother in her voice.

I always fine it cool when you hear someone's linneage come through and Georgia has really honored her family and herself with this project. "Owed to Mama" is a tight half hour's worth of music where every song and interlude coheres together into a full nuanced and layered statement.

On the track 'More and More', Georgia declares "more than a color, blackness is a state of mind" and it is this aesthetic viewpoint that really informs her music.

She sings, composes, philosophizes, and performs from an unapologetically Black stance. In doing so, she lines up within a tradition of black conscious music that flows from Louis Armstrong, to Bessie Smith, to Billie Holiday, to Nina Simone, and Aretha, through to Gil Scott-Heron and George Clinton, and Erykah Badu - all artists who's most inpired moments have been firmly grounded in black idiom.


"Owed" is substantive, it's funky, catchy and just plain good. Like its predecessor "King's Ballad" - it works on many levels simultaneously, ultimately lodging into your mind like a seed of light that grows more and more with enlightening potential.
