Philly native returns for rare
George’s sound was shaped as much by hearing his parents sing old country songs in harmony as it was by the soulful music he grew up hearing and playing in his native Philadelphia. Now based in Los Angeles, Stanford’s songs combine an East Coast soul and West coast sprawl. His heartfelt, original songs and scores are featured in a growing list of tv shows, ads and feature films.
His latest release, ‘Alone At The Pilgrim’ is a solo acoustic EP, recorded in a stunning, forgotten church in Los Angeles. “I wanted to capture my songs in a way that felt small and simple but big and beautiful all at once.
Onstage, George has shined for audiences all over the country; playing his unique take on the American singer/songwriter tradition. He has performed on NPR’s Mountain Stage, World Cafe, and NBC’s Late Night with Carson Daly. He was recently named an Amazon Music ‘Artist to watch,’ and has been a featured artist on iTunes and SiriusXM’s ‘The Pulse.’ For more, visit georgestanford.com
