- German Schlager
His deep and sonorous voice is his trademark
GEORGE McCOY sometimes sings softly and emotionally, sometimes energetically and powerfully, giving his songs his very own and unmistakable touch. "GEORGE McCOY, a singer with a voice reminiscent of world stars like Elvis Presley," that's what his fans say. And it was also the "King" who sparked a love of music in the native Scotsman with his home port of Hamburg at an early age.
The first guitar was quickly bought and the first song was written.
And success is not lacking: GEORGE McCOY wins a number of prizes at young talent competitions and subsequently releases many records and CDs. After a visit to Elvis' Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee, USA, he even recorded the song "Somebody Bigger Than You And I" in the legendary Sun Studio. Elvis Presley sang his first record in this recording studio.
In his live shows, GEORGE McCOY '.' bows to all his musical role models, which he interprets in his own way: Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Jack Jersey, Andy Tielman, John Rowles, Jimmy Ellis, Tony Christie. Engelbert Humperdinck, Al Matino, Roy Black, Peter Alexander and Freddy Quinn. And he has his own songs like "Only Who Believes in Love" and "I'm Not a Foreigner" in his repertoire, produced by Mel Jersey ("Judith and Mel").
