‘Moon Lights Up The Night’
George Wilks is releasing his newest single ‘Moon Lights Up The Night’ on 12th November 2021. It will be distributed to Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer and many more. Written, performed, produced and mixed by himself, the lyrics address mental health and the feeling of the world caving in on you. However, the returning theme in each refrain is while it can seem like everything is going wrong, we always have people who love and care about you. Due to the songs link with mental health, all streaming and download revenue from the track will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation to support those with mental health issues. The style of the song incorporates singer-songwriter and jazz, genres that significantly influence George. He has in the pipeline a live acoustic version of the song to be released on social media to reinforce the promotion of the track.
George Wilks is an up and coming musician, producer and songwriter from the South of England. He is influenced by artists such as Tom Misch, Rhys Lewis, Sam Fender, Coldplay, James Bay, Queen, and most of all Jamie Cullum, and his sound combines the styles of pop, funk, jazz, R&B, and gospel. He is starting to perform more regularly post pandemic in bars and venues across Brighton, Guildford and London usually performing as a soloist, singing while either playing piano, which would be described as his main instrument, or with an acoustic guitar. He has recently started gigging his music with a three-piece band to take his live sound to the next level, accompanied by drummer Dave Valentine and bassist Harrison White, who often co-mixes his tracks.
His newest single is his first release since his debut EP ‘Stories Left Untold’ came out in February 2021, a 6 track project that showcased his abilities in a variety of genres, from emotive piano instrumentals to disco beats. The EP received warm reception, with multiple tracks being played on BBC Introducing radio. After being invited on to BBC Introducing York to be talk about the project, he then performed two tracks from the EP live on the show.
