The concept behind THE GROOVE ASSOCIATION is not only to promote Georgie B as an artist, but also to promote other talented artists (singers, musicians etc.) and basically give them a chance to be heard, whether it be as a featured artist on one of the Groove Associations releases like Deborah Bell and Everis, or as a singer, producer and re-mix specialist like Weston Foster (Wez). Georgie B believes that only through collaboration and helping each other can we all reach our true potential and achieve our dreams!
Georgie B released his debut Groove Association album in April 2012 entitled 'LET'S BREAK THE ICE'. This critically acclaimed album hit number 5 in the UK Soul Chart and paved the way for two more albums.
