Bio

George Bancroft
The TEXAS TUNESMITH

In the midst of this overgrown music jungle littered with mediocre hydroponic music and lyric, there is one “Lone” music scene rich in acoustic soil laid thick and hearty, which continuously produces the freshest most musically nourished songwriters in the bunch. These songriders are more organically grown and wear their weathered scars with a sense of humor and the wit of wisdom. It is warriors like these that bring you the true uncensored music of life.

Nobody knows this better than George Bancroft. George has walked the walk and talked the talk in his own songwriting aspirations between his many “college tries” at everything from broadcasting to marketing and from stock broking to school teaching. “I think I am the only person I know who went from stock broker to stock boy just so I could write songs.” George has also had the endearing pleasure only a true musician gets when he is pawning off his possessions in the name of his record. “My first record was made by way of the bartering system. By the time I was done the guy who helped me had a nice studio and I was eating off a peach crate.”

With the release of his latest CD, “One Man One Guitar”, George has stripped away all the slick Nashville production and LA pitch corrections and computerized harmonies. What the listener is left with are just the raw songs – the haunting melodies and lyrics that anyone can relate to. As he sings the songs of his life, we are carried along for the ride.

It is George’s natural understanding of song and the left-of-center mentality of the true tunesmith that makes one of his performances such a memorable experience. “Texas is a migratory state and has always been about pioneering music styles. There is no music bigotry. In terms of the cross-pollination, people learn to accept all kinds of things and all kinds of music. If you have a good product you should not apologize for selling it.”

“I think Nashville takes what Texas creates, smoothes off all the rough edges and anything that is remotely offensive, and then serves vanilla pudding to the country. I’m not knocking what they do. Someone has to build a Ford, someone has to build a Chevy, but Texas builds hot rods baby!”

George’s latest record release One Man, One Guitar is available at www.georgebancroft.net. George also writes a monthly column Tale Behind The Tune in Texas Music Times Magazine. George lives in Big Spring, Texas with his beautiful wife Elissa, his two daughters Medina and Olivia, and Milagro the wonder dog.
