London Hospital Club – August 24, 2017
“quite sweetly forlorn” – CLASH
The London-based singer/songwriter George Taylor is to perform as part of The Secret Sessions at London’s Hospital Club this coming Thursday. This live date comes in support of his his recent single ‘Ophelia’ – you can listen to his recent single and the rest of his music at this link here.
Speaking about the song that occupies the same halcyon-spangled pop dimensions as ‘The Youth’ and ‘Give It Up’, George says: “Ophelia is a song I wrote after a girl I knew was very sadly sectioned and had to spend some time in hospital, thankfully she has since fully recovered. After visiting the hospital it was something I felt I had to write about as it gave me “ much clearer insight on the issues surrounding mental health, and the stigma that comes with it. “The name ‘Ophelia’ was inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet.”
George began drawing attention 12 months ago when his steady stream of singles turned heads at Warner Chappell, who quickly presented Taylor with a publishing deal following over 2 millions streams for his single ‘Give It Up’. From here, Taylor continued to generate attention securing a Spotify playlist spot for his Zane Lowe approved single ‘I Hear Your Song, Sweetness’ and an Apple Music placement for ‘The Youth’, naming it in their ‘Best Of The Week’ playlist.
