With genres like americana, vintage pop and folk rock being strong influences to the musician; he looked to artists like Leanord Cohen, Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac and David Bowie as inspirations for his alternative folk sound. Since George started his performance career he has been known to wow and engage the audience to make the largest of shows feel intimate. Accompanied with his band bragging Steamy McCay on Drums(TRAMP, Foreign Owl) Rachel Craig on Guitar, Malcolm Boyd on Bass(Happy Out) and Kate Houston on Keys, a night of The Undesired Tour is one not to be missed.
