Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best George Ezra Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
A lot of what I listened to growing up was blues, but also folk and indie music. So there’s this marriage of songs that structurally are quite bluesy. Sound-wise, there’s a lot of indie as well. But you can’t really say I’m pop-blues, because that’s insulting to blues. It just can’t exist.
Growing up, I listened to a lot of American singer/songwriters, so a lot of Tom Waits, Paul Simon – also Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. And bands like Vampire Weekend.
Writing and playing songs is something that I’ve loved doing since the day I started. It’s never been a chore; it’s always a hobby. To be able to do that from day to day makes me believe I’m a very lucky person.
I’m not a big pet fan. I remember the school used to have a hamster, and you used to take it home for a week at a time. I did that. I probably got bored of it within a day.
When I was 15 or so, I made a conscious decision to try and sing with a big voice. Everybody I listened to had these big voices, and I wanted to try it. The blessing is that I could.

I’ve always been someone who needs someone with them to poke and annoy. I’m useless at being by myself.
My first kiss was actually in a graveyard.
The music that I first fell in love with was American music, really. Nothing against British acts – I love them and will forever – but on the whole, it was the art of American storytelling in the kind of folk and blues lyrics that, if you scratch a little bit, there’s a heartbreaking story there.
You don’t want to start writing songs about how your Twitter followers are going up, because one day Twitter won’t exist, and you’ll feel like an idiot.
When I was younger, I used to love the idea of writing songs and performing them live. But that was all I thought about. I didn’t think about people getting to know my face.
I don’t know if I’m relentlessly cheerful… more consistently relaxed.
I’ve met other famous people, and what blows my mind is that when they get five minutes off, they’re partying with other famous people. I wanna see my boys at home.
The thing is, I’ll always be a touring artist. It’s what I am; that’s what I love doing.
I don’t think I’ve ever worn anything other than black jeans and shirts. Quite simple, really, and quite casual.
I’m good in summer. My birthday is in summer. I don’t like it when it’s too hot, but, you know, blue skies, I think people genuinely loosen up a bit, and it’s nicer.
