Already at a young age music is a big part of George’s life. He grows up listening to The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones.
George immediately is touched by their music and knows he wants to become a musician.
After high school he studies guitar at The Conservatory in Rotterdam. He also discovers other instruments and now, in addition to guitar, George plays piano, bass guitar, Rhodes and Hammond. As an allround musician, he starts composing songs.
As a solo guitarist he has performed with Henk Westbroek, Kadanz and later with his own band The Leads. After his first studio experience with recording solo songs he is not satisfied with the sound and decides for that reason to start his own studio. Sound Vision Studio was born.
www.soundvisionstudio.com. George has been working for over 25 years with a lot of creativity, passion and love in his beautiful and impressive studio with top quality and vintage equipment.
When Elles starts recording her solo-album REVEAL this year at Sound Vision Studio it soon becomes clear that this cooperation leads to beautiful things. Beautiful songs that need to be performed on stage as well. Naturally, Elles asks George to be a part of The State Sinners and George responds with an enthusiastic "Yes!"
George plays the guitar in the band and, together with Mark & Caroline, sings backing vocals which leads to beautiful 4 part harmonies.
