George The Poet
I shot rising star George the Poet as he prepares to sell out the Scala for the send time in six months. The Cambridge educated wordsmith swapped the tower blocks of Brent’s Stonebridge Park estate for the spires of King’s College.
George released his first EP last October, The Chicken and the Egg, earning himself a spot on the BBC’s Sound of 2015 list.
