George Wallace has redefined the meaning of career musician. His decades-long career has included the release of no fewer than 13 full-length albums, in addition to holding a staff-writer position with Screen Gems and a label affiliation with CBS/Epic Records. He has also produced several planetarium show soundtracks and a critically acclaimed three-album set of exercise music for children, and enjoyed a long history of live performance and airplay on numerous spacemusic radio programs.
Although rumored by some to be from another planet (there is no actual proof of this), George was born-and-raised in Philadelphia in the ‘50’s and 60’s – just in time for the British invasion and the emergence of the Motown phenomenon.
After high school George attended the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, majoring in composition and arranging. During and after the Berklee years he played (as keyboardist, bassist, and vocalist) with many configurations of groups. Over the course of many years playing the bar circuit with a busy, regional rock band, he became increasingly disillusioned with what he recognized as a lack of soul and substance in popular music.
In 1985, ‘Jordy’ formed and christened his own new studio and production company, AirBorn Music, which has been up-and-running ever since. With the emerging power of the Internet he was soon to discover new marketing possibilities, enabling him to promote and distribute his own catalog and eventually to set up the AirBorn website. Out of these developments emerged his three early landmark works Sacred Earth (1985), Communion (1988), and Frontiers (1993).
George has more recently produced Soul Ascending,(2013) and Light Music (2015), both featuring his trademark styles of ambient, tribal, contemplative and spacemusic. He continues to be a featured artist on many radio and internet radio programs – both local and nationally syndicated. He still produces songs and compositions ranging from power-pop to soaring, progressive rock but focuses primarily on creating magical, ambient soundworlds, for which he has developed quite a loyal following.
George currently lives with his wife-and-best-friend in Lancaster, PA, with lots of farm country nearby. In his in-home studio he has built a portfolio of compositions produced for film and television and has recently completed editing and mastering of his new live double-CD album, 'Live From Planet Earth'.
When he does manage to break away from his musical universe, Jordy enjoys travel, camping, cycling, photography, inventing new recipes, and astronomy. Astronomy is of particular interest because he is, as ever, on a quest to find out which planet he might actually be from…perhaps the rumors are true after all.
