There are some songwriters that aren’t in the business of chasing trends. Ali George is one of the musicians who need not worry about what’s on the charts. “Melanie Brown” sounds like an unearthed standard.
Throughout George’s use of the classic folk, storytelling format is impeccable. The singer claims the “murder ballads” genre, especially Nick Cave’s work within the field as his starting point for the project.
Judging by the quality of his writing, others will soon enough be anxious to cover Mr. George’s tunes.
