George The Poet

is an up and coming act from North-West London. At twenty-one years of age he offers politically conscious and often humorous social commentary through poetry. This draws from his life in London’s inner-city as well as the Politics, Psychology and Sociology course he studies at Cambridge University. George champions a new brand of poetry which is set for commercial and critical success.
