We can’t seem to get enough of the song”Budapest” by British singer-songwriter George Ezra. At twenty one, Ezra is poised to break in the US following the likes of fellow countrymen Sam Smith and John Newman.
“Budapest” is the single from his debut album, Wanted on Voyage (2014). The record was initially released as single on back in December 2013 in Italy before being released on in June 2014 in the UK.
The single has been on fire and hit #3 in the UK while hitting #1 in Austria and New Zealand. ‘Budapest also hit the top ten in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, and Switzerland.
Like so may Brits before him, an early obsession with American folk and blues artists, like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly played a role in finding his voice on his current record.
