George S. Interviews

Where can we find you right now and what are you up to?

Right now I'm in the process of promoting my newest release titled "One More Drink", so you can find me booking shows and performing the single at local open mics in the DFW area.

How did you start making music?

Great question! It may sound strange, but since I was younger I'd always hear different melodies and lyrics in my head. Like echoes of some sort. I could sit and compose entire songs in my mind but for the longest time lacked the knowledge on how to bring this music to the outside world and make them reality. It was extremely frustrating! As I got older and gained opportunities to really learn about music, harmonies and chord structures, it's easier to take ideas and write them on paper or a DAW.

What's the one thing you find difficult with today's state of the music industry? Is the world a better place for new creators?

I'd say it's easier to be an artist in today's industry more than ever. For independent artists especially since there's so many tools at your disposal. Anyone can produce a song from the comfort of their home on a laptop, and anyone can build a loyal fanbase and promote their music via social media platforms like Tiktok and Instagram.

What do you think will be the future of music artists and creators in general?

I think in the near future we're going to see more artists and creatives taking control of their careers. If a person has something they love and are passionate about, now is a better time than ever to really dive into it and build your own future using your passion and your art.

What advice would you give to new artists out there?

Being a new artist myself, the best advice I can give is don't give up. It's a long and tough journey and sometimes you think all your work might be in vain but keep going because the sacrifices you make will pay off and trust me the wins feel so freaking good

What is your opinion about music awards in general? In what way has a musician reached the top in your opinion?

I feel like music awards today aren't as important as they used to be and they don't define a great artist or musician. When an artist is able to create something that challenges the social norm or unites a group of people, regardless of background, that's when they've reached the top in my opinion. That's what I'm aiming for.

What is the hardest thing for a musician today?

Focusing on the right things. Music today is a numbers game for sure but there's so many different aspects that sometimes make it confusing when deciding which path to follow or what to define as success. Defining those terms and figuring out what you really want is the key to beat all these obstacles for sure.

What do you feel sets you apart from other artists?

Honestly my music is inspired by so many talented musicians and legends across so many different genre’s. I guess what sets me apart is that each song I produce has large pieces of my personality, experiences and general being. At the end of the day, I’m just being myself completely and totally.

Do you play video games? What is your favorite?

I LOVE video games! Haven't had much time to play recently, but I'd say my favorite game is "Little Big Planet". You can customize your avatar and get to go on adventures that are almost always food themed, if you haven't played 10/10 would recommend!

Tell us about your latest or upcoming release.

My newest release titled “One More Drink” is now available on all streaming platforms. It’s co-produced by Krowe and features insanely talented artist Maya La Maya. The song has heavy hip hop and rock influences that blend together, and what I love most about this track is the immediate feeling that you’ve stepped into another world and everything is building up to this climatic finish! The response to “One More Drink” has been super positive so far and I still have so many plans for the song, including an official music video so keep an eye out!
