The true story of a woman who learned to songwrite her way through anxiety.
Georgina didn’t know what was happening to her when she started hitting emotional lows at an alarming rate, with her thoughts spinning round in a figure eight. It wasn’t until she dusted off an old electric keyboard and started playing that she found some relief.
Funny, uplifting, and for the two million Australians who experience anxiety, Interrupting a Crisis is undeniably relatable.
Told with vulnerability and original music, Georgina invites you into the chaos and confusion of an anxious mind, and the thump of the heart that keeps the beat. It’s about taking hold of fears, saying them out loud, and making them rhyme until they are no longer terrifying. It’s about speaking out when you need help, with or without musical backing.
This is not the story of a crisis but the interruption of one.
