If you’re a follower of BBC introducing, or you keep a solid ear to the ground for genuinely talented up and coming live artists, then you may have already heard of George Montague. If not, then you’re about to hear about him in a big way.
With millions of YouTube views already under his belt, as well as a live reputation which is seeing more and more people pushing for gig tickets, his multi-instrumental shows are highlighted by a creative streak a mile wide, full of loops, electronic touches and excellent musicianship.
Fortunately, for those who haven’t had the pleasure of catching him live, he’s released new single ‘Lost’ (above) in the lead up to his highly anticipated new album ‘Curiouser and Curiouser George’. Coming this summer, the album offers even more fun than the single above, with some off-kilter ideas which even bring to mind the likes of Mika and Scissor Sisters. However, if those aren’t your cup of tea, don’t let that put you off – he’s just as adept with more straightforward fare.
