“(Carte Postale) has huge gravitas as a touching tale of when you try to conceal your very core beneath bullshit image changes just to hide the creeping loneliness. Single of the winter?” – NME

“Upper-crust to the marrow, she is almost punk rock in her refusal to be anything other then herself… Pringle is coming.” – GUARDIAN

“The spoken-word Queen of now. When she played Latitude, the sun came out.” – PLAN B

“Starting out by creating her own genre, George continues to keep things unique” – iD

Bio

George Pringle began writing music when she was 16. She pinched her older brother’s guitar and taught herself bar chords. Her brother ditched the guitar to become a DJ. “I don’t see the point of making music when I’m not doing anything new and other people can do it so much better than me. I enjoy listening to them far more,” he said.

George began recording demos on a broken two-deck Karaoke machine at home during the school holidays. She also pinched French Oral examination tape recorders whilst at boarding school and recorded late at night in the school hall, using the assembly microphone. She played alone, and in bands, before abandoning guitar for Garage band music software, which she acquired at 21.

Her brother’s words stuck with her. When she was a teenager, he played her LCD Soundsystem “Losing My Edge”. It sounded fresh and knowing: “I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables. I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought guitars.” Tony Wilson’s music cycles swirled through her head in the backseat of a Fiat Punto, somewhere in the middle of the Italian countryside. She decided that the wa-wa-waah whinging over guitar was not going to create anything new, but she was: A few years later she started talking.

Now 22, George has become a “Diseuse” (a female performer of monologues). She makes electronic music on her iBook G4 (which she calls Truman) and recites poetry over the tracks. Her demos have been described as "just plain charming!" by Music Week. George gigs Karaoke-style, with a view to someday incorporating projections of her photo journals into her live shows. George is now managed personally by Discontempt Managament (Sean Adams of Drowned in Sound, who has a track record of being the first to champion successful artists.
