Kapa Hanu Auntie Nona Beamer has dubbed George ";Hawai'i's Renaissance Man";, because he is one of the few who still knows the old ways-farming, fishing and herbs-and can survive on the land, and yet gets up every morning and works the internet, fielding international requests for his CDs and performances.

George has run his own career, often ,subsidizing his farming with revenues from his music. But the land he worked and inherited from big family {once over 6,000 acres) was lost to taxation, bankers and lawsuits.

It's sad when a man with his integrity loses ancient family land. Barry Flannagan, of Hapa, has said that when he heard a particular recording of George's he didn't think he could ever play Slack-Key guitar again he was so stunned by the power, depth and passion of George's playing.

George is one of a handful of artists who - records for the Slack-Key Master series on George Winston's Dancing Cat label, which distributes his music in 55 countries.

In his struggle to save land; he moved to Maui from the Big Island, and still works the resorts here, between touring gigs. He has played nearly all over the world, and is gaining a wider audience in the U.S. George's recordings are inspired works from soulful hands that transcend time and style.

His voice also comes from a deep place, sometimes sounding like Gabby Pahinui's but taking on a unique tone, as he comes into his own as an elder in his craft. Most of his work is mellow and ";old-world"; in texture - soothing for the soul, and virtually ";anti-pop"; in context.

He has recorded works by Queen Lili'uokalani, made an album with his son Keoki (also very talented and accomplished), and recorded with a host of other Island legends, including Edith Kanaka'ole, his brother Moses (20 albums), Diana Aki, and Kekuhi Kanahele.

His most recent release, with master musician and producer Daniel Ho (Hiroshima), is a collection of spiritual melodies (";Hymns of Hawai'i";) that George learned growing up with his 'Ohana (family). These songs are presented reverently, with contemporary touches, and provide refuge for the soul in a fast-paced, changing world.
