About

After spending 10 years at the forefront of Scotland's electronic music scene as George T, The Plastic Avengers and Shutterbug, a move to London in 2002 prompted a new name for the man now known as George Demure, as well as a rediscovery of his love for guitars, and his sensational yet elegant singing voice. Since his live debut supporting Colder at London’s Bush Hall in 2005, he attracts growing numbers of devotees with his live performances. A host of gigs include Glastonbury (2005 and 2008’s The Guardian Lounge), performances throughout London, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh, the Tank Magazine party at the ICA in 2006, Koko (Camden Palace), a show stopping performance at Output's 2006 Sonar Party in Barcelona, not forgetting Batofar and Le Baron in Paris.

Following initial releases on the legendary, but now defunct, Output and Tirk labels, George released his debut LP Boomtown Medallion in October 2007 to great applause, which has won him many admirers. With three tracks produced with Maps producer Aidan Love and two produced with The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael, the seeds of collaboration had firmly taken root.

In 2010, George returns with his new album The Drifter, mixed by brothers Luke and Liam May (aka Medicine8, Black Daniel) and due out on Mahuta Recordings in May. The introductory single is Liza, penned by Demure and Marcas Lancaster, backed with unmistakebly George Demure style cover version of The Stranglers' classic Golden Brown.

George is currently preparing for a busy summer schedule of gig across the UK and Western Europe, with a few media appearances lined up around the release of his album.
