George Leach's Biography

Picture of George Leach

George was raised in the Sta'atl'imx Nation, located in the mountains of Lillooet, British Columbia. He is a multi-disciplined artist who has achieved success as a musician, actor and visual artist.

George's first choice for self-expression is music. He is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who performs his original compositions with his own distinctive and unpredictable style. On his debut album "Just Where I'm At" (Independent 2000), he chose to root himself in the blues and composed, performed and arranged all of the vocal, guitar and bass tracks on his self-produced album.

At the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards 2000, he won Best Male Artist of the Year and Best Rock Album and was nominated for Best Song Writer.
