George Croucher releases emotionally-penned single ‘Never Really Gone’

Singer and instrumentalist George Croucher released his seminal album ‘Notes About You’ in 2022, the project coming after he returned to his Bournemouth home town after completing his Hertfordshire songwriting degree.

Now, after laying the foundations for his melodic stories of love and loss, George returns with a new single ‘Never Really Gone’. The artist brings a distinctive melancholic attitude that is laced with passion and vulnerability. Speaking to the end of a relationship, George performs over lush string lines, warm piano and soft vocal harmony. Through this, he develops a sense of poignance and closure in the atmosphere.

George shares, “Never Really Gone is a single which has been a long time coming. With the original desire to write a pop hit, I’ve ended up with a song I have a strong emotional relationship with.

I set out with a tactical vision as a songwriter to write a song which would be engaging to the masses. We went through a process of nailing down what that looks like, but I believe we came out with something much better: A song from the heart, to the heart.

When we got in the studio, Angus was already three steps ahead. He had ideas and visions of how to elevate what I had made into what we have now. He was a joy and pleasure to work with and I think the song speaks in volumes of the talent Angus holds.”
