James George has performed in venues and festivals all over the country, from Jacksonville, FL to New Hampshire, and as far west as Seattle. While he’s constantly writing and recording new music and performing as his ‘originals’ project, Marytree, he also regularly performs solo, as well as as an acoustic duo and full-on band.
James was born and raised in and around Charleston, SC. He started in music on the piano at the age of four and by six was touring the state singing in churches and nursing homes. At age fifteen he got his first guitar and it wasn’t much longer after that that he started the band Marytree.
He has a love of all things Pacific Northwestern, including Nirvana, the Melvins, TAD, Alice in Chains, Jimi Hendrix, and from elsewhere, Black Sabbath, Suicidal Tendencies and of course, the mighty Foo Fighters.
James will bring you a diverse evening of music, not limited to a particular decade or genre – he has a little something for everybody!
