A young songwriter with a big future, George Montague is a new pop artist who is turning heads in all the right places. His YouTube channel seems to be his main driver, with over 5 million views and counting, all of which has seen tastemakers at the BBC and some of the top independent radio stations and blogs taking notice.
That trend is likely to continue with his latest release, album ‘Curiouser and Curiouser George’. The collection finds a talented artist on mercurial form, bringing his own wit and spin to the acoustic pop genre. Perhaps the only trouble with his style is that there are lots of people doing similar things at present. But there’s something immediate about Montague’s sound that sets him apart, and all those people tuning in to his YouTube output can’t be wrong.
