Award-winning musician, composer and producer George Arriola has released three CDs, presenting mellow and soothing vocals, a Progressive Rock album, and lately a Christian Rock CD featuring Patricia Ivey on lead vocals. "For Love" opens with sea gulls and water washing onto a sunny beach, and is truly a beautiful love song, while "Spirit Wind" is a moving, somewhat mysterious progressive rock track. George is a seasoned musician who composes music that is compelling and emotional, with a sense of purpose and a story to tell.
George Arriola is from El Paso, Texas, and we understand he began playing the guitar at age 4, then took up drums, and has had a love affair with music ever since.
“Instrumental albums tell stories about life, worldly feelings and personal emotions, if done right the listener will catch these things and be whisked away. 'All I Wanna Do' shows off the hidden truth in music, soft touches, in your face guitars and a powerful landscape of raw emotion. From the raw sassy opening track to the amazing soft 'Melody's Joy' there's diversity throughout. Not one track is alike, which is a good thing and one that is clearly hard to find in music these days." - Tony, Shipwreck Island Studios
