Singer, Songwriter & Producer
Every project is personal, let's treat it that way.
Professional vocalist, songwriter, and producer/engineer. With 10+ years of vocal experience and a strong, natural ear for melodies, I can leave you with a top notch vocal and lyrics/melodies for your next project.
Since studying Songwriting & Music Composition at university, I've had my music supported by BBC Introducing, Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio 2), and recently took top prize at the Metropolis Studios sponsored 'B-Side Project 2016' (guest judges including Grammy winner La Roux).
Through dozens of collaborations and releases i've built up my production and songwriting skills, not only learning how to EQ a cracking snare but more importantly learning how to write the best possible song for the client! Working with so many amazing people, producers, singers and songwriters has taught me that communication is the key to a successful collaboration. Focusing on what their influences and goals are enables us to make something truly special, and critically, unique to them! .

Interview with George Gleeson
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: This is a difficult one, but I bring an honesty and believability to each project I work on. All the stories are true, and all the music is from the heart.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: This always varies client to client, but typically, I start off by asking the client for a selection of reference tracks and lyrical themes. I will get as much information as possible, and then will record some 'Sketches' to show the client to make sure i'm on the right track. Then...
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work from a number of studios, as sometimes I record live drums and bands, but my main set up is a iMac and pair of KRK VXT 6's. My go to DAW is Logic X, and i'm a big fan of Waves plugins. I use a RODE NT1-A for vocals (basic but amazing clarity), a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe for guitars.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm constantly inspired by each years wave of new artists, currently i'm really into: Kendrick Lamar, Raye, Charlie XCX, Lana Del Rey, Catfish and The Bottlemen, The 1975, and Clean Cut Kid. The artists and music professionals who have been serious influences upon me have: Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Max Martin, Jake Gosling, Rick Rubin, The Beatles, and David Bowie.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the time I write lyrics and top-lines for pop, indie pop, electronic styles of music. I also write full songs for clients to release, sometimes this will be an entire production or just the chords, lyrics and melodies. It's always important to me that the client can put their own stamp on the song!
