"The Australian songbird is a rare treat - a solo female vocalist who can sing beautifully, write moving songs, play guitar wonderfully well and exude warmth for the audience all at the same time."

Teresa Mallam, Free Press, Canada 2007

"Anita George's ‘The River’ is a delight. Anita has a unique style of singing which is catching. She is also a fine musician. Anita is a unique talent with a message to share."
Review of 'The River' by John Williams, Trad & Now

Australia's Anita George honed her craft over several years of touring festivals and venues across Australia and Canada including NXNE Festival (Canada), Sunshine Music Festival (Vancouver), Falls Festival (Australia), National Folk Festival (Aust), St Kilda Festival (Aust), Sustainable Living Festival (Federation Square), Darebin Music Festival, Bruthen Blues Festival, (Aust), Australian Music Week, the Melbourne Fringe Festival, Nannup Music Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival, Backdrop Festival, Ashcroft Opera House (Canada), The Railway Club (Canada), Manchester Lane, the Cornish Arms (Vic), Tongue and Groove (Qld), Das Kapital (ACT), the Republic Bar (Tas), (WA) and International Women’s Day Festivals (Vic, WA and Tas). She was a grand finalist in the Australian Busking Championships 2005. She was selected to showcase at the International NXNE festival (Canada) in 2007, and followed this with a tour of Canada, the States, Mexico and South America in 2007 and 2008. Along the way, she had lessons in harmonica by legendary World Harmonica Champion Carlos del Junco, slide guitar in Vancouver and Andean guitar in Bolivia.

Her second release ‘The River’ has gained national airplay on Triple J and community radio in Australia, and international airplay on the UK’s largest commercial radio station ‘TalkSport’. She has two releases behind her - the full length CD ‘Shooting for the Moon’ released in July 2005 and ‘The River’ released in October 2006 - and her song ‘Caught in the Middle’ has also been included in compilation ‘Amplified – Sounds of Tasmania’ released in November 2005.

Excerpt from online music review of ‘The River’ by Fasterlouder:
‘To say that the Australian music scene is bursting at the seams with solo singer-songwriters is an understatement of big proportions. While the quality of such artists can vary frustratingly, it makes coming across something special that extra bit satisfying. Enter Anita George and her latest EP, The River... On opening track, The Lost, George sings of the realisation of a love long lost in a suave and stylish manner... The next step in George’s journey is the stunningly beautiful Prodigal Son. It is a gorgeous track in both its sentiment and simplicity... Rounding out this impressive EP is the understated Soar, an inspiring track powered by George’s heavenly vocals’
