(George Ezra Barnett)
[1993-…], Hertford, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom |
|This year at the Lab it’s all about young British artists. When you see the adolescent, gangly physique of George Ezra, you are even more struck by how much confidence he injects into his grounded folk. A kind of modern Jack Kerouac inspired by Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, he found the inspiration for his first blues and soul album Wanted on Voyage while traveling. With a bass/baritone voice from another era, George Ezra is just as comfortable wielding gravity and dry wit while flanked by actor Ian McKellen as he is with a laid-back cover of a Cindy Lauper song. If he asked you to come with him tomorrow to “Budapest”, how could you refuse?
