"‘Summer Song’ is the exceptional new single from Caroline alt rockers By George"

A psychedelic acoustic number that follows in the footsteps of previous singles ‘Relax’ and ‘Handsome Hobo’, the distinctive vocals are what steal the full limelight. Already sitting at over 1,500 streams on Spotify alone, the track may be at just under 2 and a half minutes long, but it’s certainly turning heads. - Music Crowns

"By George Are Back With 'Summer Song'"

Stripping things back to a beautifully crafted psychedelic acoustic release, By George are showing their diverse musicianship and downright impressive song writing abilities with ‘Summer Song.’ Aptly titled, the beautiful fingerpicked acoustic guitar playing makes for an atmospheric melody that allows the vocals to shine. On point harmonies delivered with emotion, By George have written this one straight from the heart. - BabyStep Magazine

"NC Release Radar: Our favorite new music releases from North Carolina artists"

"Charlotte alt-rock outfit By George embodies the ethos of headstrong youth, with their vivacious guitar-forward tracks with radio-ready hooks." - CLTure

"By George - Handsome Hobo"

"By George have reminded those over 25 what they had and, what we should be striving to give back to future generations post-covid. For those in the throes of youth, their hope and despair have been given a great outlet. On this showing, ‘The Life of Guy’ is shaping up to be a must listen album." - Travellers Tunes


Uniquely blending tranquil psychedelic sounds with scuzzy, big-room rock, By George are quickly turning industry heads and making a name for themselves. ‘Handsome Hobo’ showcases everything the 4-piece represent – controlled chaos, regulated experimentation, and downright hooky song writing. - GIGsoup

"By George – Handsome Hobo"

‘Handsome Hobo’ is for lovers of filthy guitar riffs and rough vocals. Mix an overall tranquil sound with psychedelic rock and scuzzy compositions and you have exactly what the four piece represents. It’s a controlled chaos and a regulated experiment that, even though not truly inventive, is very effective in its simple catchiness. - Music for the Misfits


“Relax” propels By George’s ascent into developing their own genuine individuality, their true musical self. - TopShelf Music


With top-class vocal quality, a knack for lyricism and a slick electric grit, the single is nothing short of saturated. From the hypnotic bass, impressive wavers of the electric guitar and hidden drive of the drumbeat, By George have pulled out all the stops for this one. -


Originally from Charlotte, NC, By George is an up-and-coming rock band in the North Carolina music scene. Combining traditional rock with modern alternative concepts, By George continues to build a new and exciting sound for all audiences. - BabyStep Magazine

"By George release anthemic new single Handsome Hobo"

The band put together messy indie-rock guitar with slight tinges of psychedelia to create a song that naturally leans towards summer days. - Let It Happen

"By George - Klep"

It has honestly been a long time since I've heard a new rock track with as much subtlety and nuance to it without comprising on the power and general heft of the vibe. This feels like a side project from the Vampire Weekend and Monster Truck reworking a long lost Monkees rock album that the label rejected back in the day. I'm sold, where do I sign up? - Monger

In the North Carolina summer of 2016, guitarists and vocalists Henry Moldenhauer and Tyler Ford began writing and playing music in the Charlotte area, eventually finding local success touring to support the release of two alternative rock EPs. After establishing a foundation, they then formed the band “By George” and began piecing together bits of music and shared experience. This effort would become actualized in a concept album, appropriately dubbed “The Life of Guy”.

Set to be released in mid-2021, the band tells a story about the post-millennial journey from birth to death of a man balancing relatable struggles with purpose and ever elusive identity. While Guy advances on his journey, he clings to the fleeting “bright lights, wide eyes, and white lies” of his youth, eventually realizing and accepting that nothing “lasts forever”. Combining exciting and fast paced tracks like “Klep” and “Sinking” with the rich melodies of “Summer Song” and “Handsome Hobo,” the album draws from a variety of genres, but carves an exciting new path in modern rock.
