George was brought up in Aberystwyth, where he discovered the guitar aged 13 and since then has been set on dedicating his life to music. At the age of 19 now, George has already been endorsed by Dowina Guitars and MOD Devices and been interviewed by Yamaha Musicians, is a part of Haka Entertainment’s network, performed at Shrewsbury Folk Festival, and won the Young Musician of Dyfed in 2017. George has also just released his debut album Shades of Colour in August 2019 after a very successful launch party in the Ceredigion Museum.
George’s music is in a range of different genre’s and styles but his favourites are Folk, Rock, creating ambience with atmospheric pieces, Celtic, and Groove. At the moment, George’s main goal is to just have fun with his music every step of the way and to give the audience a new light on what the acoustic guitar is capable of.
If you’re interested, George’s influences come from guitarists such as Mike Dawes, Jon Gomm, Petteri Sariola, and Sungha Jung. He also loves the sound of the piano and although he can’t play it, Ludovico Einaudi’s music is a huge influence on George’s music and in terms of non-guitarists, George really loves Ben Howard, Paramore, Linkin Park, and Ed Sheeran!
