His albums are held in handmade books, each one printed, cut, and sewed by George and his friends in Burlington, Vermont. There he has made a name for himself as a constant creator and community-oriented collaborator. His music spans genres, from Appalachian ballad singing to experimental folk and even punk rock, while maintaining a deep rooted love for the art of storytelling.
