Age no obstacle
SINGER songwriter George Montague may only be 21 but his prolific talents belie his tender years.
With his infectious 'fuzzrop' style uniting rock, pop, funk and jazz, it is surely only a matter of time before this up and coming musician hits the big time.
And backed by his six-piece 'notsobigband' at his gig at the Sundial Theatre in Cirencester next Friday, George will be in his element.
With more than three million hits on YouTube, the Stroud-based performer is making his mark on a global audience.

Festivals are George's bread and butter and he will be spending the summer travelling across the country from event to event.
But before that he is playing a few smaller venues as a warm-up and to give his latest compositions an airing.
"Music has always been a massive part of my life ever since I was a child, when my parents had stuff like Earth, Wind and Fire and Madness blaring out," said George.
He learned the double bass at school and then, at the age of 11, taught himself the piano, which is now his main instrument of choice.
His unique blend of music has been inspired by his musical heroes, which include Jamie Cullum, Chris Martin and Robbie Williams among others.
"I just heard these people perform and wanted to do what they did," he said. "When I was 13 I saw Jamie Cullum at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and it fed my musical ambitions."
His latest single Love Struck Fool, based on the Cinderella story, is on the playlist for the Sundial and he is now working on a music video for it.
Then it's a festival-filled summer for Mr Montague.
Tickets for the 8pm gig cost £10 from 01285 654228 or £12 on the door. Helen Blow
