George Simon Stanford worked his way to becoming a singer/songwriter by playing trombone. Trombone became Stanford’s “gateway” instrument, leading him to play any instrument in any band he could. Already a star in his native Philadelphia, Stanford is poised to become the next John Mayer. His album comes out later this year on Smash/Mercury Records, and here he is recording basic tracks for the song BIG DROP at the famous D room of the Village Recorder in Santa Monica, CA.
