…this undeniably bright star of the Sta’atl’imx Nation from the interior British Columbia has earned his artistic integrity. His debut album, Just Where I’m At (2000), garnered international recognition, establishing him as a respected singer, songwriter, guitarist, and performer. Leach composed, performed and arranged all of the vocal, guitar and bass tracks on the self-produced album, winning “Best Male Artist” and “Best Rock Album” awards at the 2000 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards. The video of its popular single, “Young Enough,” reached the Top 5 on the coveted Bravo Video Hit List and the Top 10 on the Much More Music chart. Equally impressive is its win for ”Best Music Video Award” at the 2002 American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco.
Leach has since traveled internationally, performing as far as China for clubs, festivals, galas, events and television specials like The National Aboriginal Achievement Awards in 2009. He has shared the stage with such talented and legendary artists as Bo Diddley, the late Jeff Healey, Great Big Sea, Tom Cochrane, Robin Ford, Robert Randolph, 54-40, Doc Walker, Robbie Robertson, Susan Aglukark, Trooper, Chilliwack, and The Constantines. His music has enjoyed radio play across Canada. Not bad for a kid who picked up the guitar at the ripe age of 16 and taught himself to play by ear.
Today, George Leach is one of Canada’s foremost guitarists. His sound can best be described as contemporary rock with a blues edge. It is unique and distinctive, performed in a gritty, high-spirited blues style, and it is his fierce mastery of the guitar that irresistibly attracts respect from all walks of life. Lyrics are vibrant and provoking. Ballads are fresh, performed in an intimate and natural style, informed with charm. A charismatic performer, his stage presence is passionate and full of expression, with powerful vocals, and he is unwaveringly sincere and graceful with his live audience. His Video “You Got It” 2009 was nominated for Best Video at the 2010 Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards.
On his 2nd album, Surrender, to be released Fall 2011.. Leach takes the listener on a journey of dealing with change – of fear and resistance to it…of challenging values and beliefs and, gradually, acceptance of and surrender to change.
“its about being vulnerable to the experiences that make us human and real” he explains…Letting go…To free yourself from judgement in order to evolve.”
With the addition of Surrender, Leach is certain to continue establishing himself as an extraordinary singer, songwriter, guitarist and performer who brings his own distinctive talent, charisma, and energy to the music world. Change, in this case, is a welcome breath of fresh air, and with this bold, young artist, we can look forward to embracing more change to come.
