George is Lord is a celebration of all things George Harrison - What began as an exercise in learning to play the drums, became a band - Anna Pomerantz quit her job as Interior Designer to the stars and called upon old friend Lindsay Glover, to teach her to play the drums.
Lindsay, who has played in local LA favorites, Whiskey Biscuit and Future Pigeon, began by teaching Anna the fundamentals and quickly it turned into learning songs. "One of the first songs we learned was 'Something.' I've actually spent most of my life hating the Beatles, but hearing them again for the first time through the drums, made me fall completely in love, especially with George and Ringo," recalls Anna. "I began teaching Lindsay the guitar and we started playing together."
The duo went on to learn a number of songs like, "Long, Long, Long," "All Things Must Pass," and "Give Me Love" when they realized they were ready to play with other people. Lindsay asked friend Cody Porter of Pearl Harbor and Puro Instinct to come play bass. "In our lessons, Lindsay had taught me how to sing while playing the drums to keep my place in songs. I didn't think I was going to be a singer in a band, it just happened." The missing ingredient was a lead guitar player, and the trio invited Sam Blasucci of the popular LA folk duo Mapache if he'd be willing to jam with us.
He brought his magic and completed George Is Lord. George is Lord recorded their first album of covers with producer Jason Quever (Beach House, Cass McCombs). Dean Wareham (Luna, Galaxie 500) appears as a guest. The ten song record includes a variety of George favorites from the Beatles catalogue and throughout George's solo career.
