Born 3rd August 1955, Liverpool, George Nicholas is a professional artist/muralist/cartoonist. George has spent the last 35 years running charity that improves the environments for sick, disabled, disadvantaged and terminally ill children.
George had made the decision at Yule Festival on the Isle of Mona (Anglesey) 2008 to embark on a musical journey and transform his many poems and lyrics into songs and music celebrating the land, seasons and the soul.
Since George has embarked on his musical journey he has had the good fortune to find new talented and musical friends, to assist him in the unique sound now collectively known as Cernunnos Rising.
His album features the talents of Matt McGrory (Guitar), Martin Clarke (Keyboards & Flute), Nick Reynolds (Bass), Simon Lomax (Guitar, Flute, etc..), Carla Lewis & Katie Nicholas (Vocal Harmonies)... and last but not least... the multi-talented Phil Orme, who played on and produced the Wild Soul album.
Many thanks must also go out to the exceptionally talented Angi Barnet who produced the original art work featured on both the album cover and the website.
George also had the good fortune to become friends with the internationally renowned new age producer Medwyn Goodall, who he collaborated with on his first album.
Cernunnos Rising have 6 albums available.
