Bio

Introducing George Demure...

...a suave and debonair gentleman hailing from Scotland, now living and working in London.

Descendant of an infamous Scottish folk singer, George spent 10 years at the forefront of Scotland's electronic music scene before moving to London in 2002. This move prompted a rediscovery of his love for guitars as well as discovering his warm and elegant singing voice.

Equally adept behind a bank of drum machines as he is with acoustic guitars and tambourines, George's songs demonstrate an obsessive love of music, from Charlie Feathers to Lee Perry, Throbbing Gristle to Otis Redding - and his ability to weave a particular lyrical slant in his music owes much to his love of literature.

Having made his live debut supporting Colder at Londons Bush Hall in 2005, he attracted a growing number of admirers with live performances at Glastonbury 2005, the Tank Magazine party at the ICA, Koko (Camden Palace), a show stopping performance at Output's 2006 Sonar Party in Barcelona as well a host of performaces throughout London's nightlife.

George Demure was first featured on Output Recordings Channel 4 Compilation with the classic "New Confrontation". A single, "The Main Attraction" was released in September 2006, one of the last ever releases on Output. Then, with Tirk, he released the New Confrontation EP, a critically acclaimed 5 tracker, in December 2006. Now signed to Tirk Records offshoot August Day, his album "Boomtown Medallion" has just been released with an updated version of "New Confrontation" produced with Maps producer Aidan Love and eleven other fabulous tracks, including two produced by The Strokes producer, Gordon Raphael. The single "My Baby's Gone" has just been released with a superb video directed by Arthur Landon.

And Djing? He continues to entertain discerning club goers with his fabulous, unpredictable, highly skilled blend of sound and styles that screams..."I LOVE MUSIC".
