George Five: What a journey…
If anyone would have told me 4 years ago when I was just a freelance musican playing covers that today I’d have a new EP recorded in one of the best studios in the world, I would definitely not have believed it. Because this, me, George Five was born only 2 years ago. Although can’t really say when the exact moment was that I thought “Hey! What if you try to make it as a solo artist? with your own original stuff?”. Obviously music has been my EVERYTHING my whole life, but I was more than happy singing other artists songs.
I’ve always been writing songs, but as my father always said “You are good starting things and terrible finishing them”. That means I had a bunch of voice-notes, word docs and notebooks full of ideas living in nowhereland. But hey! the good news is that now I have the necessity of writing stuff. Sometimes good, sometimes not that good, but in the end its 100% ME.
With the fact that my first original material online is a Live EP, I want to tell you that this is what I’ve been doing my whole life: playing live, without artifacts, without edits. It’s not perfect but it’s REAL.
George Five is not just my stage name. George Five is now my way of expressing what I have inside through music. My way out, my language, my counsellor and sometimes my worst critic.
At this point I just want to thank all the people that have helped me get here and to all these new friends that are coming on board on this ship called George Five. I can only promise work, news and music made from the bottom of my heart.
Someone told me not long ago “Create the music that you’d like to listen to” and this is my presentation to you beautiful people: TRUTH.
I hope our journey together is full of adventures, laughs, tears and emotion. Because this is the real meaning of life. Shall we start sailing?
