Born in Hertfordshire, George Ezra Barnett moved to Bristol in 2011 to study music. His obsession with American folk and blues led him to release two EPs. Soon, George Ezra started going on tour and gaining fame for his music. Ezra's first hit single was 'Budapest', which hit the top five in several countries.
Ezra's debut album Wanted on Voyage came out in June 2014. The album made it to number one in eight countries, owing to top ten singles like 'Budapest' and 'Blame It On Me'. That of course included the UK where it was the third-best selling album of the year. George Ezra quickly went on tour supporting artists like Sam Smith and Hozier.
Ezra soon followed up with his second album Staying At Tamara's in 2018. The album topped the UK Album chart and reached the top ten elsewhere. While its second single 'Paradise' reached number two in the UK, the next did even better, giving Ezra his first UK #1 single with 'Shotgun'.
The success of Staying At Tamara's secured Ezra the Brit Award for Best British Solo Artist in early 2019. Also that year, fans were able to catch George Ezra on tour for a string of UK arena dates. Ezra even appeared on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival, supporting headliner Stormzy.
