Little G Weevil is an International Blues Challenge winner, USA Blues Music Award, two time Blues Blast Music Award and Independent Blues Award nominee recording artist, southern blues singer, songwriter, guitarist, lyricist and producer with nine internationally acclaimed albums under his belt. He is a proud Honorary Lifetime Member Recipient of the Atlanta Blues Society.
Little G Weevil was born with a soul for adventure. Growing up in the suburb of Budapest, Hungary during the Soviet occupation, his approach to life was always slightly different from others around him.
“ I still remember the Russian soldiers whistling after my mother as we were crossing the road to see Grandma. My mother told me to stay quiet and turn my head the other way. We lived near the airport and there was a military base down the road. I even remember what their license tag looked like. Imagine.”
The fall of the Iron Curtain came in 1989-1990 and Western music freely flooded into Central Europe, including Blues music.
“To me and my generation of Hungarians, Blues music meant FREEDOM at that time. As simple as that.”
Gee fell in love with American blues records and picked up the guitar at the age of 17. He always had such a drive and passion to perform that after seeing him jamming on three different stages on a single night, a fellow musician dubbed him “Little G Weevil. “He said, “like a damn weevil, you just pop up everywhere!”.
Ever since Little G. started his career he has focused solely on the Southern Blues and this can be clearly heard in his compositions. He formed his first band in 1998 and began touring mostly in European countries before moving to the South of the United States in 2004. He spent time in Birmingham, AL and Memphis, TN doing any jobs he could to get by as he absorbed the music. He washed dishes, cleaned rooms, and did construction work as he tried to establish himself on the local scene. Finally he got his break with a steady gig on Beale Street in Memphis and his reputation started to grow.
His first solo recordings were produced in Memphis, TN in 2005. His debut album ‘Southern Experience’ was released in 2008, followed by ‘The Teaser’ in 2012. Meanwhile Gee Weevil relocated to the Atlanta metropolitan area and settled in Kennesaw, GA.
2013 is the year when Gee's hard work and dedication begins to pay off. In January, he takes first place at the International Blues Challenge (Memphis) as a solo acoustic act. He's also awarded as “Best Guitarist” in his category. In July, his third record and first full length acoustic album ‘Moving’ is released with Vizztone Label Group. ‘Moving’ is ranked Top 3 “Best Blues Album of the Year” by Mojo magazine, the popular England based music publication. In December he's nominated for USA Blues Music Award, the highest honor given to blues musicians by the Blues Foundation.
Between the years of 2014 and 2020, Gee released several albums and toured in the USA, Canada, Spain, France, Portugal, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary.
In 2021, he recorded a 100% live (without post-editing) solo acoustic album simply titled ‘Live Acoustic Session’ which earned him a Blues Blast Music Award nomination. He also co-written and produced the album ‘Sugar Hip Ya Ya’ for Dionne Bennett out of Wales, UK.
As of September 16, 2023 his latest release “If I May…” reached the No 1 position on Roots Music Report's global radio airplay chart.
