Currently considered as one of the best, he comes to Vilar de Mouros for a unique and exclusive performance in Portugal. We are talking about the young British George Ezra, who elected Vilar de Mouros as one of the few festivals he will perform at this summer. Ezra brings with him the acclaimed debut album “Wanted on Voyage”, from 2014, which earned him the unanimous applause of public and critics. The album was one of the best selling in England in 2014 and 2015, having taken over the Top 10 of ten countries, largely due to the single “Budapest”, which also won several platinum awards from Germany to New Zealand. As a result, Ezra added nominations for some of the most important music awards, from the Brit Awards to the MTV Music Awards, to the BBC, Ivor Novello and You Tube, in which he was appointed as one of the 50 artists to follow.
Young singer-songwriter – he is only 24 years old – Ezra navigates between folk, blues and rock, thanks to his biggest influences he likes mentioning: Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly and Howlin Wolf. Lord of a passionate, mature voice, described by critics as “making more sense to an Alabama fishing boat captain than to a Bristol native”, George Ezra debuted on the disc with the EP “Did You Hear the Rain? ” in late 2013, in which the song” Budapest ” was included. It was followed by a new EP, “Cassy O’” in 2014, and shortly thereafter “Wanted on Voyage”, the album that definitely confirmed George Ezra as one of the most talented artists in recent years. That is why he has already been chosen for the opening of shows of musicians as important as the former Led Zeppelin Rober Plant, or Sam Smith.
