‘Blood Ties’
music & lyrics by George Montague

I find myself
My arteries are filled
The blood flows through my veins
A gentle love unstilled

I sail my way
In a vessel under your skin
Seven seas away
A crimson life of kin

(And) all that once was lost
Is found In your eyes

Tighten up a tie
Tie that knot tight
Lift your head high
You’re home with me tonight

I kiss your scars
Breaks in your skin
Fractures to your heart
And let the healing begin

??(And) all that once was lost
Is found In your eyes

Tomorrow I awake
Missing a glove
Tomorrow I awake
Missing a glove

Tomorrow I awake
Missing a glove
Tomorrow I awake
Missing a glove

Tomorrow I awake
Missing a glove

” ‘White Cavalry’ -­? funny, upbeat and charmingly daft music video made by George. Over 400,000 people (yes, four hundred THOUSAND people) have found and watched it already on sheer word of mouth. His debut album HAVE YOU MET GEORGE is out now and he’ll be playing the whole thing live…” -­? Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music -­? Introducing Mixtape Radio Show)

” ‘Blood Ties’ One of several tunes touched by The Spirit Of Jazz, this is lighter and, for want of a better word, more commercial than the other tracks I’ve reviewed on here this week. It’s easy to see Montague filling the well-polished shoes of Jamie Cullum et al with his infectious, Radio 2-friendly big band sound. …It’s really rather good” – Sam Lee (Fresh On The Net)

“With the soul of Jamie Cullum mixed with modern-day jazz and big brass sounds, George Montague has put his own stamp on a new era of artists with this bold toe- tapping debut album. It certainly packs a punch and makes you explore an encyclopaedia of instruments which gives you a vivid insight into what George is about. The inspirational lyrics of Footprints in the Rain combined with the upbeat and seductive nature of White Cavalry takes you on one epic musical journey from start to finish. Entitled ‘Have you Met George’, I am sure I’m one of many who can proudly say that they know this hard-working, passionate and talented beyond belief individual” – Jess Bracey, Stroud FM
