The very first time I encountered George Ogilvie’s exquisite voice was two years ago, when the Canterbury born singer songwriter lent that earthy impassioned voice to an electronic re-work of Ben Howard’s I Forget Where We Were by Romanian producer Boehm. As it turns out, George Ogilvie is an immense artist who draws heavy comparison to Ben Howard himself. The rising folk musician draws us into his florid sprawling world with eloquent new single Foreign Hands, a stunning ballad produced by 2015 Mercury Prize winning Jonathan Quarmby. George Ogilvie has been confirmed to support Leo Stannard on his March 2017 tour.

I can’t wait to see Ben Howard move a sold out crowd at the Fox Oakland in a couple weeks. It will be my first time catching him live, and his recent album, End Of The Affair, is as profound of an emotional listen as I, and many of my Ben Howard loving friends, expected. I Forget Where We Were is one of several stand out songs off the release. It’s quite the poignant, melancholic song, so it’s certainly nice to re-visit it in the form of a totally revamped, uplifting melodic house re-imagining, courtesy of Romanian producer Boehm. He teams up with exquisitely voiced George Ogilvie for the remix cover which flawlessly floats us to the tropics on gliding strings and sparkling Balearic instruments.
