Mr George Burrage


George is a freelance musician based in Manchester with an emphasis on original music. He recently graduated with first class honours from the Royal Northern College of Music's BMus (Hons) Popular Music Performance Degree.

George plays bass guitar, double bass and violin in a variety of genres and ensembles but focuses on three: Diving Station (harp-driven dream pop band), Bethlehem Casuals (7-piece groove-folk outfit) and indie-folk singer-songwriter Anna McLuckie.

Diving Station's music has been featured on shows on BBC Radio 2 (Bob Harris) and BBC Radio 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson, Guy Garvey). The band have also recorded a live session for BBC Introducing in Manchester and played festivals including Glastonbury and Bluedot.

Bethlehem Casuals recently recorded a live session for Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6 and have played at festivals including Mandrea (Italy), Glastonbury and Latitude amongst many others. The Casuals also organised our own sold out festival, ‘Keep It Casual’ at 78 Sackville St.

In addition to these original projects, George performed (No,12k,Lg,17Mif) with New Order as part of a 12-piece synthesiser orchestra for festivals in Vienna and Turin, as well as Manchester International Festival 2017. A documentary/concert film about this collaboration was premiered on Sky Arts on 22nd September 2018, and a live album was released on July 12th 2019.

George also plays bass guitar and bass synth for the Ignition Orchestra performing Garage Classical. So far they have performed two sold out shows in London: the first was at the Barbican Centre on 21st July 2018 followed by the Hammersmith Apollo on 14th December 2018. The Ignition Orchestra also performed at the 3 Beat @ 30 Anniversary showcase at Liverpool International Music Festival 2019.
