British singer-songwriter Ali George is known for his intricate fingerstyle guitar technique, his mellow, understated vocals, and his subtle, earthy songwriting. George works within the genre of Indie Folk (with hints of Americana and Ambient music). Of a multitude of potent influences, two defining acts inspire his music most profoundly: Bon Iver and John Martyn. He has released six albums (which have been added to the British National Library’s Permanent Collection). His latest album Platys Yialos is a departure from his Folk roots. Wait for the Mist to Clear - the first single from the album - was hailed as an “absolute gem” by BBC Music Introducing DJ Sarah Gosling. He is an independent artist looking for sync placement opportunities.
Watchful Days marks the third and latest instalment of Ali George's album trilogy, produced in collaboration with Josh Clark (drummer for folk legend Kate Rusby). Through a powerful blend of soulful vocals, poignant lyrics, and intricate and inventive guitar parts, the album delves into themes of love, betrayal, and isolation.
