Welcome to the world of the incredible George Bromfield aka Georgie B. So let’s begin – Georgie B, has been singing, writing, producing and DJ’ing within the music industry for the past 40 years, starting with the hit 80’s jazz funk band Second Image, you’ll have to go way back to 1979 In North London when the starry eyed 16 year old singer/drummer followed his bass playing brother Sam ‘Junior’ Bromfield, Rem Fiore (plus close friend Frank Burke).
After leaving Second Image in the late 80’s, Georgie B continued to work tirelessly within the music industry, working and sharing the stage with many distinguished artists such as Womack & Womack, Bobby Womack, Jean Carn, MAZE (ft. Frankie Beverly), Reel 2 Reel, Phil Fearon, Rod Temperton (writer of ‘Thriller’ & ‘Rock With You’), Paul Weller and many more. Plus a plethora of live and studio session performances around the globe. In April 2011, Georgie B was invited to sing (with Second Image) at the 02 Theatre in London, as part of the 30 YEAR CELEBRATION OF BRIT FUNK. This sold out concert was a ‘must attend’ event for the soul family placing Georgie along side other great British soul / jazz funk acts such as Incognito, Imagination, Beggar & Co/Light Of The World, Junior Giscombe, David Joseph and Central Line.
As an accomplished singer / songwriter / producer and with the resurgence of the British ‘Jazz Funk’ scene, Georgie felt the time was right to go solo. So In 2011 he put together his own band ‘THE GROOVE ASSOCIATION’ and ‘Let’s Break The Ice‘ was his first release, this was soon followed by ‘Old Skool Magic’. Georgie B released his debut album in April 2012 entitled ‘LET’S BREAK THE ICE’. This critically acclaimed album hit number 3 in the UK Soul Chart and paved the way for two more album releases ‘3AM’ and ‘Soul Family Affair’. These albums were real game changers for Georgie B, both hitting No1 in the UK Soul Chart and generating new fans all over the world! Also picking up awards in 2017 for ‘Best Soul Album’ and ‘Best Soul Artist/Group’.
Fast forward to winter 2018, Georgie B’s latest offering ‘MORE AND MORE’ his 4th Groove Association album to date, features 15 tracks of soul / jazz fusion and RnB flavas! The perfect way to showcase his song writing production talents. This new album has future No1 written all over it!
