Throwing himself into the local music scene in Kent, George’s musical influences would grow: from Bon Iver, Sharon Van Etten and John Martyn to soul and jazz legends like Ray Charles & Nina Simone. His raw, honest songwriting tempered by uncluttered pop saw his last release, ‘October’ streak into the Top 10 on Hype Machine as well as bringing him tastemaker acclaim from the likes of MAHOGANY, CLASH Magazine and BBC Introducing amongst others.
His new release ‘Foreign Hands’ continues the identity George is furnishing for himself – clear, bright storytelling and naturally melodic instrumentation bringing accurate comparisons to a young Ben Howard. Produced by 2015 Mercury Prize-winning Jonathan Quarmby, George has been confirmed as support to Leo Stannard’s March 2017 tour – further cementing the growing reputation of one of the UK’s rising stars.
Speaking on the track, George states:
“Foreign Hands is about rediscovering reality after feeling trapped by emotions and warped perceptions”
