George's songwriting styles include Christian (praise & worship, inspirational, and adult contemporary), humorous, acoustic, folk/singer-songwriter, and a little country. A wee bit of country.

He is an active member of NSAI-Detroit and GMA, which offer a valuable community context for creativity, assessment and growth.

Whatever the genre or audience, George enjoys crafting lyric-driven, melodious, poignant and hopefully memorable songs. Those are easier to sing, too.

George co-writes with his wife Lynn and others and recognizes the creative benefit of collaboration. Proficient in acoustic guitar, George has written songs for 20 years.

George and Lynn's songs can be heard (strictly for demonstration purposes) at 
Sonicbids.
