George Ezra is a British singer and songwriter. He rose to fame after releasing two of his extended play records ‘Did You Hear the Rain?’ and ‘Cassy O’ followed by the hit single, ‘Budapest’ which went on to top music charts in numerous countries. When his debut album ‘Wanted on Voyage’ came out in 2014, it became an instant hit in the UK. It then stood at the numero uno spot not only in the UK but also in seven different countries. Known for his deep, bluesy and soulful music, Ezra is clearly following the path paved by musicians Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie. In fact, he was so fixated with Dylan that he even looked up for earlier American folk and blues artists. His second album, ‘Staying at Tamara's’, which released in early 2018, tabled at the No. 1 spot in the UK. It also featured in the top ten list of eight other countries. Ezra’s single ‘Paradise’ from the album wasted no time in claiming second spot in the UK music charts while his following single ‘Shotgun’ made its way to No 1 in the UK, Ireland, and Australia. His growing popularity led him to make appearances on American variety shows ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’.
