Reviews

"George is a singer-songwriter and former Union Organizer who specializes in expressing his views on the state of the US nation (and, by extension, the whole of the Western World) and in revitalizing 20th century songs from the labor and social injustice movements. And it’s a task that he accomplishes with sympathy, good humour and occasionally swiping satire." - At the Barrier
