Los Angeles based multi-disciplinary artist George Arnett, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, first cultivated his artistic expression at S. Watkins Overton High School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Memphis, Tennessee. It was there that his passion for the arts was sparked and his love for music was fostered. George studied music composition at the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music at the University of Memphis.
Centering on the African-American experience, George's classical compositions consist of various settings of Negro spirituals for the concert stage and other contemporary works based on the literature of black Americans. George's largest music work The Creaion: A Negro Sermon for Five Voices premiered at African-American Lectionary Forum on Culture, Worship, and Preaching at the Kelly Miller Smith Institute on Black Church Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. The work was inspired by the James Weldon Johnson poem The Creation from his work "God's Trombones."
In addition to blogging, George has written several short stories and his work has appeared on Minnesota Public Radio's Classical Music Blog. He has also appeared as a guest panelist on the popular YouTube talk show The Grapevine TV. George served on the youth sub-committe for 2016's National Black Writer's Conference and founded the organization LIT which focuses on Black and queer content and community.
