George Stanford Interview

By: Sindy

George Stanford is a singer/songwriter whose EP, simply titled The EP, is in stores now. Kidzworld chats with the up-and-coming star about the long road to success and his first album, due out in 2008.

Sindy: Hey George. Can you tell us a little about what we can expect to hear from your EP?
George Stanford: Sure. You can expect to hear a pretty basic and stripped down version of what will be included on my debut album when it comes out next year. It's pretty pared down and not heavily produced at all.

Sindy: Any idea what you're calling the album?
George Stanford: I'm still kicking around a few ideas, but I haven't decided yet.

Sindy: How would you describe your sound to someone who has no idea what you're about?
George Stanford: I really hate to say it's an "easy to listen to" sound, because people have certain connotations with "easy listening" music. I can't say that I blame them. But the music is pretty mellow and relaxed. It's definitely not hard to listen to.

Sindy: This must be a really exciting time for you. Are you taking it all in your stride or are you kind of freaking out?
George Stanford: A little of both. It is such an exciting time in my life. I'm really trying to stay focused and take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way.

Sindy: So how did you get your start in music?
George Stanford: I was really surrounded with it from birth. I have a really musical family and music was always playing in the house. I have an older brother who really introduced me into the world of rock and Hendrix and songwriting. He was a huge influence on me.

Sindy: And how was it that you finally nabbed your record deal?
George Stanford: I was in a band for several years out of Philly so I was working on my chops, so to speak. And then I wrote a song with a guy in Philly called Heartbeat and he happened to be in the Sony Building in New York and he played it to an A&R guy, who ended up calling me. His boss was in LA at the time - and I happened to be there - and we talked and such and I played him some songs. After that he flew me to New York and I met the whole company, and the rest is history.

    According to me Hermione and Harry make a better couple than  Hermione and Ron. But also, if  Hermione and Harry were together than Ron would be alone as he would have no one else to go with. Also the  Hermione and Ron being together adds a new twist to the story as they were always seen fighting and did not seem to get together much.  Also the chemistry between Harry and Ginny cannot be overlooked.
