George was born in 1989 under his civil name Erich Johannes Bockes in Kallmünz in the German state of Bavaria and discovered his love for music as a child.
Together with the organist "Jerome Charles", who grew up with him in the same street, they formed their first band withsongs influenced by Jimmy Hendrix and Muddy Waters.
George found his role as guitarist and singer there and began to write his own lyrics.
The guitarist began to improve his singing style and taught himself guitar, bass, drums and piano self-taught.In this way he came closer to the vision of the optimal sound.
Since then, numerous self-produced songs have been released on Spotify, Amazon, Deezer, Youtube and Itunes.
He looks back to the lyrics and style of Bob Marley, Muddy Waters, Curtis Mayfield, Jimmy Hendrix, James Brown and admires the perfectionism and multi-facetedness of their music.
He takes his special playful accent and mixes it with what he really likes about the music of his idols. The musical style can best be classified between hip hop, soul and funk.
George and his fellow musician Jerome Charles (Karl/Hammond Organ) have gained plenty of stage experience in various cities since 2012 until today and founded a completely original funk dancenight "The Funkstation" in the heart of Regensburg "Das Degginger" in 2016.
Today, George Johnson and his musicians have created a sophisticated home recording studio called: Good Hood Records.
