Despite his background in opera and stage performance, Russian R&B vocalist George Hodos always harbored a desire to become pop musician. For a long time, he toured his nation within a kids’s opera and afterwards went to The Russian Academy of Theater Arts. He released his debut record, The Tone of voice, in 2007, which showcased his sensitive, expressive tone of voice and produced him a superstar in Russia. Another goal was achieving the U.S. marketplace. He recorded a couple of adult modern R&B titled Only a Guy, a 2010 record, his initial stateside release. It had been led with the name track, that was made by the Alumni and presented a visitor appearance from Snoop Dogg.
