Em George is a Sydney based singer-songwriter with a thought-provoking style, influenced by musicians like Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen to writers such as Truman Capote, Allen Ginsberg and Arthur Miller.
Writing about personal experience or about the absurdities and observations of life, George’s songs display an introspective quality that is unique to her as an artist. Drawing influences from all genres of music, her melodies help express the true meaning of the lyrics.
Her first single, released mid 2013, Murderers On The Inside was played on community radio stations across Australia including Triple J Unearthed and Home Brew. The track was also featured on several music and culture blogs such as Mad Mackerel and Made Static.
Towards the end of 2013 Murderers On The Inside was optioned by HBO and remixed by Stephen Kozmeniuk (Kayne West, Madonna).
Truth is the new single by Em George, displaying her unique style as an artist. The song is about our own inner most desires and the realisation that the reality of our lives and situations sometimes prevent us from achieving those desires.
Em George has spent the last six months playing a series of gigs around Sydney playing at venues such as Oxford Art Factory, Tipple Bar, Brighton Up Bar and FBi Social.
