David George.

David George has spent the last two years fine tuning his newest release on Uniglobe Records titled Radiant Man. George’s new album is filled with songs inspired by his father, the loss of a friend, and meeting the love of his life. Recorded in Kansas City by Duane Trower (Weights & Measures Soundlab) with additional engineering by Chris Cosgrove and Wes West.

It was after relocating back to Kansas City from years in Los Angeles that David George got a call from John Fogerty’s manager asking him to join John’s band. It was the gig of a lifetime with appearances on “Letterman,” “Leno,” “The View,” and sharing the stage with another legend, Paul McCartney.

It was a dream job and opportunity that was difficult to set aside when George decided it was time to focus on his own material. Previously, George released two singles (“Shine” and “So You”) with bonus material leading up to the release of the full length album Radiant Man.

“Shine resonates with the deceptive simplicity of classic Creedence.” Kansas City Star

The So You (Bonus Single EP) was recently selected by Ink Magazine as one of the top new releases.

During the excitement of the Kansas City Royals being in the World Series, George was inspired to write a song for the city. “Hey, Kansas City!” was written and recorded in just a few days with members of his band and local folk/rock legends Erin McGrane and Jeff Freling of Victor and Penny. ”Hey, Kansas City!” beat out two other internationally known tunes to become the Touchdown Anthem at Arrowhead Stadium when the Kansas City Chiefs score.

David George recently wrote, produced and starred in a musical called Christmas Ain’t A Drag. Destined to by a timeless classic, it’s a story about four lives that intersect at a nightclub before Christmas filled with original big band styled Christmas music.

George’s early musical memories are filled with the radio blaring the song of the day on long family road trips. “I was raised on big music from the Beatles to Led Zeppelin and love turning it up and disappearing in it!” It wasn’t until a chance meeting with the Indigo Girls while living in Los Angeles that inspired George to go out and buy an acoustic guitar sending him down the path to rock and roll.

David George and his band, A Crooked Mile, have shared the stage with The Lumineers, Robert Earl Keen, Jacob Dylan, Styx, Art Alexakis, REO Speedwagon, and Don Felder (Eagles) as well as performed at Boulevardia,The Crossroads Music Festival, MidCoast Takeover, South By Southwest, and The Folk Alliance Conference.
