High energy. Raw & expressive ballads with layered depth. From the first note to the last it keeps you in the moment and never lets you go. This album provides soulful rock that's fine tuned and sharp as a needle. David Michael George’s message of perseverance is delivered with exhilarating chills straight to the heart of his listeners. 1,000 Yard Stare is an empowering album that truly conveys what it’s like to overcome obstacles when the odds are stacked against you.

I’m David Michael George, DMG, an American artist out of Dallas, TX with roots in Rock/Soul/Funk & blues. This all started with a phone call from a friend suggesting that I come up to Nashville to record my songs. I jumped in my car, excited and scared of the unknown, and headed down the path that was opening up before me. The plan was to stay a week. I stayed a month. Recorded the most heart felt, honest and true music I’ve ever written with close friends and new relationships while battling loss and inner demons. The album began to breath new life into me and dust off my true identity. Constant writing and open to growth, I’m rejoicing in the perseverance through the darkness of everyday life by using music as a guide. Now looking to deliver the music live with shows that build momentum like a freight train.

David Michael George was born in Garland, Texas. George’s main musical influences growing up were Joe Cocker, James Brown, Prince, and Al Green. Coming from two hard working parents (Denise and Larry Shipley), David used to be babysat by his grandmother, Margie Stanley. At his grandmother’s house, he discovered melodies and rhythm by practicing on her juke joint style piano. Outside of the house, David dealt with the pains of childhood in a rough neighborhood and a struggling family life. Whether skateboarding or battling youths, music began to become an outlet for his aggression. After moving several places with his family and ending up in South Bend, Indiana, David replaced his grandmother’s house with a basement where he could isolate himself with his guitar. With the help from his father David explored assorted styles of music. Returning home to Texas, David Michael George has continued his pursuit of music. Spending several years exploring the music scene in Denton, Texas in the early 2000s, he has been the front man in numerous musical projects including The Sundowners, Roaming Soldiers, and the Crowe Showe. DMG combines Rock and Soul with under tones of Funk and Blues that delivers an emotionally powerful live show!
