Fixx8Mag recently had the opportunity to chat with Josef George a multitalented performer from the British Virgin Islands. His love for music started at an early age performing at local concerts and community events. By the time Josef was 13 he had taught himself how to play the piano, saxophone, the guitar and the violin. He was also writing, composing and arranging his own music. 4 years later Now he is ready to share his talent and become a world wide superstar.
First and foremost, introduce yourself to our readers.
I am Josef George, a 17 year old emerging R&B recording artist, producer and song writer who loves to perform.
Yes, we have a very rich musical style and history in the Virgin Islands. Being exposed to various kinds of music gave me a greater appreciation for music and helped me to develop my own style. From an early age I was exposed to various genres of music including the local fungi, reggae, calypso, and soca music. I also grew up hearing a lot of jazz, gospel, and R&B. As time when on, I found myself gravitating more to R&B. I started writing and playing various instruments. I later wanted to go out in the world and represent the Virgin Islands by becoming a world renowned R&B artist, producer and songwriter.
I looked up to Michael Jackson when I was growing up.
I started playing the drums in church when I was four years old.
When I am playing in front of a live audience it feels good to be able to grab the audience’s attention and draw them into my performance. The excitement of the crowd energizes me and gives me a sense of satisfaction to know that I was able to live up to their expectations.
When I performed at the BVI Music Fest this past May that was my best musical memory, because I had a live band with backup singers, and I performed in front of thousands of people.
I want to work with Trey Songz someday. The music would sound fresh, unique and very professional.
I am romantic, very understanding and highly respectful of the ladies.
My favorite track on the album is Magic, because it’s very real to me and expresses my feelings.
