George Harper & The Awesome Bastards
George is a Nashville native, and currently lives just north of there. Being from Nashville, and growing up in a musical family, his exposure to music has been imminent and diversified.
From horn bands to bluegrass, mix a lot of rock & roll, and throw in a little blues. Oh, and let's not forget the country music influence.
Throw it all together, and you get a melting pot of different styles. If you come to two shows on consecutive nights, you might just hear the same song played bluegrass one night, and bluesy the next.
George just released a CD a year ago, and is receiving raving reviews. He was almost immediately signed to play as an opening act for Rodney Crowell at The Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival in Longford, Ireland. After his European debut, he was signed to come back and perform again this year.
George's CD, "I'll Be Back" is a collection of 14 songs ORIGINALS. When you hear it you will see just how much influence is written into the different styles represented.
