Following the release of his single Sugar Cane late last year, popular folk singer Faraway George released his much-anticipated album in March 2020.

BURNT & FOUND, which the singer-songwriter describes as “a blend of Folk Acoustic and Indie complemented by definite hints of Country”, is about returning to a state of appreciation for people and separating what is important in life from the noise of earthly things. It boasts nine impressive original tracks that were written by the artist himself, as well as one song – Hold Up – which he co-wrote with his brother, Fritz Günter.

When Sugar Cane was released last November, the track impressed with its unique approach – as it was one of four tracks that he recorded during a live show. The song has also been play-listed by most of the major radio stations, still features on Lekker FM’s Top 20 charts and has had thousands of streams so far.

While Faraway George’s personal favourites from the album include Hold Up, Armour, and Sugar Cane, he says it was a challenge to find the perfect combination of songs. “I realised that I had to appreciate the simplicity of production and ultimately be satisfied with imperfection and that the art of ‘making mistakes’ is often overlooked,” he explains.

The young artist’s plans for the future include a new Afrikaans album, which he already started writing last year. “I believe when inspiration abounds, you need to open the taps and let it flow freely.” He is releasing a BRAND NEW single called ‘Hey Sister’ later this year.

It’s all about promoting local right now – and I am delighted to have 2 CD’s (yes all cool, old school CD’s) to giveaway to 2 lucky readers of the latest album from local singer Faraway George, valued at R 120 each!
