“George Barnett cannot produce a bad song. Or even an OK song. Every song he makes is a hit.”
Tom Sarig, Founder, AntiFragile Records, NYC.
George Barnett is an innovative, passionate and powerful music artist, a consummate songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Having garnered 30 million streams independently, he recently signed to acclaimed New York label AntiFragile February 2020.
George has released two EPs with the label: Bad For You and Make It Rain (released August 28th 2020) and has appeared on major editorial Spotify playlists including New Music Friday in the USA, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Norway, Australia and Canada. His song Stone Cold Classic has 16 millions streams on Spotify alone and is featured on the global ad campaign for Skoda Cars.
His unique brand of explosive Alt Pop has earned him several accolades including

As well as writing his own music, George Barnett has produced and written for other artists including Zak Abel, Kyan and collaborated with some of the freshest young writers in the UK such as Lawrie Martin, Anthony Truman, Marc Dowding as well as working with Bring me The Horizon producer Dan Lancaster.
Under his alter ego DJ/Electronic artist name, AKA George, George co-wrote and produced Something ‘Bout The Music for the No. 1 hit scoring dance label Perfect Havoc with 7 million streams and counting as well as his uber cool collab with French band Neu Model.
George has recently been approached to write bespoke scores for independent cinema.
“I’m a huge fan of Trent Reznor and Hans Zimmer but I also love the melodic scores of John Williams and Ennio Morricone. To write a score from scratch is the dream.”
Whether he is writing for his own George Barnett project, under the guise of his producer title or for other artists, it all distills down to the same pure form for George:
“The real power of music is to transform; it can elate, it make you fall in love, it can make you remember, it can make you forget. Music can make you feel in a way that no other art form can. Music has to be hooky but it also has to take the listener somewhere that makes them not just feel, but want to act on that feeling.”
