"Next Time" - Out Now!
“The debut EP from the George Collins Band, "It’s Been A Long Time," is a collection of songs brimming with literate and insightful narratives and sharp pop hooks. Collins’s songwriting hits that sweet spot where art and craft intersect. This passionate pop/rock with a modern vintage feel recalls masterful tunesmiths like The Beatles, Tom Petty, XTC, Elvis Costello, Dire Straits, Counting Crows and Wilco, among others. His songs feature instantly hummable melodies; subtle but smart counterpoint; clever chord sequences; ace musicianship; and vocals that ooze soulful rock n’ roll longing. As a lyricist, Collins is a poet, a sage, a storyteller, and an empath. He covers the full-spectrum of emotions and the human experience, and he writes with cinematic detail, visceral vulnerability, and clever turns of phrase.” - Lorne Behrman
