REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

George Watsky Biography

George Watsky is a rapper, writer and performer from San Francisco now living in Los Angeles. A versatile lyricist who switches between silly and serious, technically complex and simply heartfelt, George won the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. Immediately after, George appeared on the final season of "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry" in 2007 while a himself college freshman and subsequently performed at over 150 universities across the country. Rapping all the while under the name ‘Watsky,’ George self-released the barely-heard jazz-hip hop record "Invisible Inc" in 2007 and the self-titled "Watsky" in 2010, which peaked at No. 7 on the iTunes hip hop charts.

In January 2011 George’s fast rapping went viral and led to two appearances on the "Ellen Show," a slot on "Last Call with Carson Daly," and an exploding online profile. George has performed at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, the NAACP Image Awards on FOX, three times at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and has been featured in XXL, Billboard Magazine, the New York Times Magazine. Watsky’s social media presence made him one of only 23 artists dubbed by ‘The Next Big Sound’ as a ‘Big Sound of 2011,’ alongside Mac Miller, Kreayshawn and Skrillex.

George graduated from Emerson College with a B.A. in “Writing and Acting for the Screen and Stage.”
