George is a Portland, Oregon based contemporary solo guitarist who performs original music on a hybrid, nylon string instrument. His music employs modern sound modeling technologies that blend the characteristics of acoustic and electric instruments to produce a unique, ethereal sound. George worked with over 60 musical ensembles over a period of 15 years, then discovered his muse and began composing contemporary solo guitar compositions, drawing on influences from new age, smooth jazz, rock and classical music.
