I’m Called George was first conceived way back in 2010 with George on guitar and vocals, and James on keyboards. Both James and George co-write the music, with George the voice behind the lyrics and James taking control of the studio sounds. Tired of being duo, a year, and many failed attempts later, I’m Called George was finally complete as a four piece electro-pop powerhouse, with the addition of Elmo and Connal. Elmo is the beautiful bassist and blog writer and Connal, the beast on the bongos, is their resident ‘percussion expert’. Moving base from the middle of nowhere (Buckinghamshire) down to the middle of London, Zone 1 became their new home, playing gigs at 229, Water Rats, The Bowery and the O2 Academy, Islington.
Now approaching the end of their second year in action, I’m Called George is soon to release their new single, ‘49 Soda + A Bottle of Rum’, due February 2013, to accompany their first promotional track, ‘Jigsaw’. To add to this, they have recently headlined The Buffalo Bar, Islington and have had successes in competitions such as Live & Unsigned, as well as playing at various festivals around the country over the summer. In early 2013, you will also see the band perform again at Water Rats, and the well renowned Cargo for their single release party.
