Georgie James were an indie pop/rock group from Washington D.C. featuring John Davis (formerly of Q and Not U), Laura Burhenn, Andrew Black (formerly of The Explosion), and Michael Cotterman (formerly of The Loved Ones and Kid Dynamite).

When Q and Not U called it quits in 2005 after releasing three albums, the band split into three different projects: Ris Paul Ric, a folk/electronic solo effort from Chris Richards; Harris Klahr commenced work on his new project, President; and finally, Georgie James, featuring Q And Not U's drummer Davis.

Having met through the D.C. music scene, Davis and singer/songwriter Burhenn (who had released two solo albums on her own Laboratory Records prior to this project) discovered that they had similar tastes in pop music from the 1950s to the 1970s. They decided to start working together as a band, Davis writing the guitars, bass and drums, Burhenn on the Rhodes Electric Piano. A few hours later they had written a few songs, and decided this was a worthy project to take aboard.

Later in 2005, the duo recorded demos at Silver Sonya Studio in Arlington, VA. with producers Chad Clark and TJ Lipple and also at their practice space in NE D.C. By November 2005, they produced a 7-song demo, showcasing a mix of cool pop production, dancey riffs reminiscent of Power-era Q and Not U and unexplored territory for the both of them. The resulting demo was entitled Demos at Dance Place (named after the arts center adjacent to their practice space) and was self-released in 2006.

In February 2007, they released their first single on Laboratory Records, "Need Your Needs." That spring, Georgie James signed a record contract with indie label Saddle Creek Records. They have been touring North America and Europe extensively to promote their debut full length, 'Places,' which was released in September 2007.

It was announced on August 4, 2008 that the duo had broken up with hopes of focusing more on each others solo projects.
