George Riley

George has been involved in the DRTT project since the very beginning.

As one of the musicians involved with the project he quickly found himself writing original material and contributing to songs and music composed by others. Through the course of the DRTT project his musicianship and songwriting abilities have been considerably developed, and, as a consequence, he has found himself in demand as a writer and accompanist in local bands and duets.

As the DRTT project has progressed, there have been opportunities for George to increase his musical sophistication, and he has risen to the challenge. He now performs his own original material as part of a duet, and this material is being well received, particularly at the White Ark festival, a local festival where songwriters perform their own songs. The DRTT project has enabled George to find a voice, and to find an audience for that voice.
