Raised in small town Waikato, George is the son of a professional skateboarder and a musician. Since a young age, George has been immersed in skateboarding and band life. Penning songs in his childhood and playing the guitar in the footsteps of his mum, it’s no surprise that now he is chasing the rush of live music.
George relocated to Auckland City two years ago to start working on his forthcoming debut EP with acclaimed Australian producer Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale, Baker Boy) and Wellington collaborator Neil Macleod.
George VILLA’s introductory track, “Running Free”, is a tongue-in-cheek rejection anthem born out of jealousy after he found himself being replaced by his girlfriend’s new book stealing her attention.
