George Faber Born in Champaign, IL, Faber became deeply rooted in the Chicago blues scene. He spent years touring the country performing in blues houses like Kingston Mines and Wise Fools Pub, playing with legends like Muddy Waters and Lowell George. From there, the evolution of styles began; from a controversial glam rock front man performing to rock festival crowds and an early MTV video release – to returning to R&B blues roots and packing rooms from Chicago to New Orleans. Faber’s music has evolved blending all of these styles. His songs transmit the longing of a soul singer mixed with the honesty of a modern-day singer/songwriter. Learn more about George on his website. Listen to George and Christian Wheeler's Audition clip on YouTube.
