Video of the Week: Georg Roman’s ‘Forever’

Classical, Pop, Rock, Uncategorized

Crossover artist, Georg Roman has dropped his video for his latest single, a track that truly hits you in the face on your listen.

With a powerful operatic style voice, combined with rock tendencies, Georg Roman has developed a niche style of music that blends genres in a way that few have done before.

Comparing himself to Josh Groban, Georg takes influence from both classical artists like Luciano Pavarotti, as well as rock legends such as Eric Clapton.

Georg notes that there is nothing quite like the feeling of singing iconic opera songs like ‘Rigoletto’ or ‘Tu Ca Nun Chiagne’, and he seeks to mix this feeling with other types of music that he loves, such as rock. Georg also believes that every song should be told in its own way, and this is certainly something he does with great emphasis on ‘Forever’. Check it out!
