Solstice

 

Coming from a Musical family, George started playing the Drums and performing at an early age.  He was introduced to Jazz by his Father, Performer and Composer, Paul Hart with whom he did many of his first gigs.  After attending local Jazz workshops, visiting Jazz Summer schools and honing his sight reading at N.Y.J.O 2, he applied for the Undergraduate Jazz course at the Royal Academy of Music.  He studied here from 1998-2002, graduating with first class honours.  Since then George has been freelancing in London where he has performed at venues such as Ronnie Scott's, Pizza Express, 606, Jazz Cafe and the Queen Elizabeth Hall.  You can hear him on records by Phil Donkin, Ivo Neame, Brigitte Beraha and Seb Pipe.  In spite of all this talk of "Jazz"  George is interested in a wide variety of Music and has been involved in a wide spectrum of playing situations from Classical through to Heavy Metal.  More recently, George has been touring and recording with "Swing Out Sister" and recording with Colin McKenzie's "Inransit".
