It seems that for the last few years, we can't move for singer-songwriter types clogging up the charts. So when someone comes along that breaks the conventional mould, it makes us sit up and listen. And this is what we felt when we first got turned on to AKA George.
With over 30million hits on Youtube and even Pharrell Williams dubbing him a "genius" for his work to date, AKA George is one of the hottest artists in the world right now and has just returned with his latest single 'Blazing'.
Taking his cues from the likes of Ed Sheehan and Jack Garrett when it comes to delivering a new kind of sound in the singer-songwriter role, 'Blazing' is one of those unashamed pop singles that you just can't get out of your head. From its bold production to anthemic chorus, the track cements itself as one of the most impressive of his career to date and looks to only be the beginning for the young frontman.
