George Montague

Have you met George? This piano-hitting, string-twanging, gravity-defying singer songwriter multi-instrumentalist, with over 5 million views on YouTube, is exciting audiences with his infectious energy and contagious original songs.

After performing to an enthusiastic audience at Cheltenham Jazz Festival and winning Decca's Search for a New Jazz Star, George continues his #notsobigtour playing piano, guitar and ukulele, doing solo shows with a loop station and bass-drum, or backed by his spectacular 6-piece notsobigband, made up of some of the UK’s finest musicians. George has been playing venues throughout London and the ‘shires, including the Henley Festival, and is looking forward to a series of gigs at EFG London Jazz Festival as part of Festival on the Move, our exciting strand of free pop-up shows across London. 

'People who have used the phrase "tearing the place apart" haven't heard George Montague who has redefined the term' (BBC News)
'Charismatic and talented pianist and songwriter; charming and original' (BBC 6 Music)

'Montague is obviously a considerable talent, a powerful singer and a more than useful instrumentalist. He’s also got a genuine stage presence, albeit a decidedly wacky one. Mainstream success may beckon… I wouldn’t rule out him headlining the Big Top in the future' (The Jazz Mann)
