AKA George: “I’ll always have freedom over my creativity whether I’m signed or not”

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.

Ones To Watch / Interview – Vox Empire

One of my finest music discoveries of last year were Southend on Sea based four-piece Vox Empire, whom I had the pleasure of seeing live a couple of times while supporting The Virginmarys back in November. Highly impressed by their sound and a great energy coming out of their performance, I was hooked immediately and judging by the crowds reaction, their already solid fan based clearly multiplied and still keeps growing fast. This month, the band’s put out a fantastic new EP called Day One, which you ought to add to your music collection and if you get a chance, go and catch the guys live, whether it’s a street acoustic session or a proper full-on rock out at your nearby venue, be there and I assure you, you won’t be disappointed.

I caught up with Vox Empire’s lead singer Matt Linnen for a lil music chat.
