More about The George Twins:
Jordan and Tyler George spent most of their childhood and early teens immersed in athletics. Having a twin brother meant lots of opportunity for competition and laughs. Noticing their uninhibited, endless energy the two of them were approached by a talent agent and encouraged to begin acting and modeling.
After signing with the local talent agency Jordan and Tyler were invited to participate in an acting and modeling competition in Orlando, Florida. They each won runner up in each competition. Following this event and multiple callbacks from acting and modeling agencies, Jordan and Tyler signed with Innovative Artists Los Angeles. They have since been cast in multiple music videos and photo shoots, most recently in Rodney Atkins’ video, He’s Mine and Colton Dixon’s video, Never Gone.
After playing football through their sophomore year in High School, they eventually gave up sports for music. While in elementary school, Jordan loved guitar hero. After making it to the expert level and rocking Dragon Force’s Through the Fire and Flames, Jordan wanted to play the real guitar. After playing guitar in middle school, he expanded his musical interests to singing and songwriting in High School. Tyler’s parents had bought him a drum kit when he was young to keep him from making beats on dinnerware, furniture, and his sister’s head. Along with percussion, Tyler has expanded his musical interest to the keyboard, vocals, and songwriting.
Over the past two years Tyler and Jordan have performed a handful of times in local venues and in front of the celebrity judges of both the X-Factor and America’s Got Talent.
In January 2014, they started a YouTube channel and released their first EP, The George Twins, to itunes. Their One Direction cover of Story of My Life has had over 78,000 views and made it into the Top Ten in the cover competition on RyanSeacrest.com.
Their second One Direction cover video, Diana, released March 11th, the same day their twitter following crossed over the 10k follower mark. Twitter verified them as a legitimate act one week later.
They go into the studio later this month to record their first full-length album.
