George is a freelance musician and recent RNCM graduate based in Manchester. He plays bass guitar, double bass and violin in a variety of genres and ensembles but focus on three: Diving Station (harp-driven dream pop band), Bethlehem Casuals (7-piece groove-folk outfit) and indie-folk singer-songwriter Anna McLuckie. In addition to these original projects, he was a member of the 12-piece synthesiser orchestra that performed as part of New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. in Vienna and Turin this year and at MIF17. He also plays bass guitar and bass synth for the Ignition Orchestra performing Garage Classical.
I hope that this programme will help develop my entrepreneurial skills and understanding of how independent artists can reach a wider audience. I’m very excited to be a part of it!
