George composes in the genres of pop, rock, jazz, R'nB, soul, classical, contemporary, and alternative.
Often listening to western music on the radio, his taste in music expanded. He had a strong desire to write in styles other than what he was accustomed to, but did not know anyone in the west that would supply him with lyrics or craft lyrics to his music. He began to correspond with Ray on LinkedIn and began to compose music that Ray would craft lyrics to. It wasn't long before Ray invited him in 2011 to become the second member of the team at “Midas King productions”, and they set out to build a new catalogue of songs together, As a result of his relentless drive, George is now beginning to achieve his goals in the West and is now writing internationally for our signed artists.
George is currently composing a number songs with `Steve Johnson` and Raymond Fry for artist`Amaryllis Santiago who's album is due to be released in mid 2017. George also composed and produced `Rebecca` and also Remixed`Sheaam Deans` `Afterglow`as an R'nB version.
