Songwriter, singer & producer, George Baines is an emerging Northampton-born artist currently based in Camden. By blending classic acoustic guitar playing with contemporary influence from James Blake, Phoebe Bridgers & Bon Iver - Baines’ goal is to bring the 70’s singer songwriter into the present day. 
 Baines independently released his first self-produced record, Something Deeper in 2019. The seven songs that form the album started life during a solo recording-retreat to a cottage in the Peak District the year prior, later finishing off the recordings whilst studying Songwriting in Brighton (British Institute of Modern Music). Something Deeper establishes Baines’ progressive folk sound, layering crispy finger-picked guitar parts with soulfully melancholic harmonies. 
 Since then, Baines has worked with Minus the Bear’s, NIGHTBLIND & former classmate Will MW on Cat Out the Bag, a single that demonstrates his love for storytelling lyricism and introduces glitchy electronic elements into his sound.
