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.

True artists who create music that makes you feel something are rare these days, but if you pay a close attention, you’ll find such talents producing music that will leave a mark on your soul, send chills down your spine and leave you longing for more. Windmills has always had such effect on me. Back in 2012, I spoke to the man behind this project, Cory Myraas, about his unique musical ways and creating a sound that takes you to a special place. Windmills, based in The Okanagan, BC, have kept moving ever since, evolving graciously through Cory who has been pouring his life experiences and challenges into his writing and music. His latest single, Sierra Nevada, about which Cory talks in our following interview, is a track loaded with beautiful melancholy, and him expressing each heartfelt emotion through the soul-stirring vocals that flawlessly compliment the magnificent soundscapes.
I spoke to Cory not only about his new single and the continuous growth of Windmills, but also about his travels, favourite shows and plans for next year.
