SINGLE review: Grave-George Ogilvie

'Grave' is a truly special piece from singer-songwriter, George Ogilvie. It is achingly honest, when you think that the lyrics are about George's struggles with mental health and alcohol ("don't walk over my grave"). It's almost heartbreaking to hear such honesty, and his voice is entrancing. He is a unique and uncompromising musician. His style reminds me of Damien Rice, who I absolutely adore. 

Apparently, George only discovered he could sing during his A levels when he injured his hand and therefore couldn't play piano for his assessment. He had to sing instead. He later began playing guitar and writing songs.

'Grave' is taken from George's upcoming debut album, which he has described as a form of 'music therapy'. His inspirations include The National and Sharon Van Etten. 

His music has already gained 55 million views on Spotify.

I, personally, can't wait to hear more from George Ogilvie. I think I have found a new favourite artist.




He is playing a show at Omeara on 31 May and, if you can make it, you should really get down there.
