Philip Island local Georgia Flood feels like a ready-made star.
Already a regular in front of the camera, Flood has appeared in shows like Wentworth and House Husbands, and is starring in Disney+’s upcoming show Nautilus. Now, she’s ready to tackle music with her second single, “Blue Honey”.
While known for her onscreen displays, music was one of Georgia’s first loves. She started playing piano at a young age, alongside learning how to play the violin and taking singing lessons. At 14, she started playing guitar and learning music software after becoming hooked on electronic music and under guidance from a music teacher, practice soon became perfect.
But theatre would come first – Flood headed to France to study at theatre school in Paris and then the 16th Street Actors Studio in Melbourne before kicking off her blossoming film career.
Having released her debut single, “Cowboy”, at the start of the year, she recently followed it up with “Blue Honey”, a refreshing effort at a bubbly pop, electronic, and country blend (all of Flood’s favourite genres).
“This was the challenge of “Blue Honey”, I couldn’t really find anything that would describe what I wanted to create,” she explains. “My loves are electronic music, pop and country, and with this track we tried to make a blend.”
On”Blue Honey”, Flood’s voice is inviting, and despite it being only her second official single, she already sounds extremely polished. Following the release of the track, Tone Deaf caught up with the multi-hyphenate as part of our Get to Know series to find out more about her life and music.

When in the middle of a creative process, I was trying to intellectualise my creation, and my colleague said, “I don’t think it’s logical.” That really stayed with me. If a lyric might not make sense, [it] doesn’t mean it doesn’t sound or feel good.
