When I first spoke to AKA George four years ago and saw him perform live in Brighton, I was extremely impressed with his boundless talents as well as the undying passion and energy he puts into the creation of his music and performing. Such talent is rare and for that reason major labels wanted to sign him, but, at the time he wasn’t ready and declined the offers. Instead, he went for a wise move – keep on evolving as an artist and improve his songwriting and performing skills. So for the past few years AKA George has been working hard and putting out music for his dedicated fans; music that’s original, creative and brilliant. His latest single Stone Cold Classic, a tune as cool and catchy as it can get, has become a huge hit and proves that AKA George is now more than ready to get signed and show the rest of the world what he’s capable of.
Here is our interview about his musical journey, creative process, performing, fans and plans for next year.
