ROCK: Retro-Rock, URBAN/R&B: Psychedelic Soul
George Tisdale, is the newest retro rocker to hit the industry scene. While there are many other "retro" rock acts that have preceded him who now serve as an inspiration. George is the newest force to be reckoned with and remains determined not to be pigeonholed to a single style or genre. His music crosses all barriers by fusing the rich, soulful and often rocking sounds of soul, funk, rock, psychedelic, folk, and ballads receptive to audiences of every class, creed and color. George received his start at age 8 while playing the drums, keys and later the guitar at his parent’s church in Dallas, TX. Upon completion of a tour of Duty in the U.S. Airforce, George took his gifts and toured Europe; it was there his dream of becoming an artist began to manifest. George returned from Europe and attended North Carolina Central University where he studied jazz under the tutelage of the legendary Dr. Ira Wiggins. At NCCU George developed his sound and found a style distinctive enough to separate him from the masses. As he reflects on his journey, George says, “All my life I knew I was a performer with something powerful to share, I knew I was an artist created with purpose and now its time the world knows who George Tisdale is”. Some of George’s personal influences hail from his very own family tree to include Hidden Beach and Sony Recording Artist, Keite Young and his Uncle, the well renowned smooth jazz bassist Wayman Tisdale, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Bilal, Kevin Michael, Marvin Gaye, Sly and the family Stone, and John Peter West to name a few. Despite the vast array of influences, George places an all-inclusive spin on rock & soul that has empowered him with the ability to establish himself as the epitome of retro while raising the standard in becoming one of the world''s greatest style icon. George has worked with a range of noteworthy artists from Branford Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Keite Young, Dalon Collins, Nnenna Freelon, Lenora Zenzalai Helm, Eriv Revis, Joey Calderazzo, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Chris Coleman, Kevin Mahogany, Antonio Hart, and Grady Tate just to name a few. George recently teamed up with “Da Katalyst” production team, led by Aaron "Treeptop" Pines, a prolific producer from Texas, Simon Illa of Philadelphia, PA, the immaculate Purple St. James, formerly known as Yahzarah, the legendary production team Organized Noize, Chris Warrior and along with a host of other great producers, singer/songwriters, and musicians to complete his current project entitled “Born Free”. George Tisdale’s drive reminds us of music''s essential quality of boundless invention by all available means. As an independent artist with a refreshing sound, he continues to perfect his craft and keep labels and audiences buzzing across the country.
