Music has been ingrained into George’s DNA since childhood. When he was three years old, watching a Notre Dame football game with his father, he mentioned that he wanted to be the guy with the big furry hat leading the marching band instead of the star running back. He did play football in high school, but it was music that was a constant force in who he was and became.
During the Pandemic of 2020-21, George produced an amazing single called “Home To Kansas City” by David Luther and is currently producing Luther’s latest EP, hoping for a winter 2022 release. George also managed to finish his first novel Bear & The Future King based on the legend of King Arthur and is currently querying for representation.
George released an amazing EP (Wrecking Ball) in 2019 with the acoustic duo Volker Bros. In 2017, he released three EP’s Here I Go Again (all acoustic), Won’t Let Go (full band), Lesson Of Love (full band w/ horns). His first and only full length as David George & A Crooked Mile (Radiant Man) was released with praise in 2015. The single “So You” was selected as one of the top releases in Kansas City radio.
In 2019 George created a musical that debuted in New York City to a sold-out audience. Christmas Ain’t A Drag, a fun-filled show about four lives that intersect in a nightclub on Christmas Eve with original music inspired by the Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Show and other big band music of the era, starred Billy Blanks, Jr. and featured Music Director Bob Malone (John Fogerty, Ringo Starr). Christmas Ain’t A Drag debuted at the legendary Cutting Room in New York City to rave revues. Theater Pizzaz called it a “Holly jolly holiday spectacular!”
During the Pandemic George created a show called Quarantune At Noon. The show was a daily live performance show where he would spin the Wheel of For-Tune that would select the song he would play the following day. The show lasted for ninety straight days (Quarantine) where George performed over 110 songs with only a dozen repeats!
Getting a call to join John Fogerty’s band was a career-defining moment in George’s life and it threw him into the fire. Learning forty songs in a week and only two eight-hour rehearsals before walking on stage in front of 10,000 people at the first show of many was a challenge but earned him respect with people he looked up to. Sharing the stage with John was a thrill, but being in the band with top players like Kenny Aronoff, James Intveld, David Santos, and Bob Malone put even more pressure on him to up his game. And then having the chance to share a stage with Paul McCartney and perform on Letterman, Leno, and The View was something he could only dream about. And it all came true.
Although music was George’s first calling, he spent time after college pursuing his love of film working with Jodie Foster, Mel Gibson, Bill Paxton, and Michael Jackson. During the pandemic, George rekindled a film project about the legendary Brigitte Bardot turning it into a limited series. George is also working on the film adaption of Christmas Ain’t A Drag.
As a solo artist, George has been extremely fortunate to have shared the stage with The Lumineers, Robert Earl Keen, Jacob Dylan, Styx, The Temptations, Art Alexakis/Everclear, REO Speedwagon, and Don Felder (Eagles). When the Kansas City Royals were in the 2014 World Series he wrote a song for the city called “Hey, Kansas City!” It became the Touchdown Anthem for the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2015 season and still gets heard on radio and TV.
