Singer, songwriter, and rising R&B star George Tandy Jr. started from Starbucks and now he's here—on the verge of releasing his full-length debut album The Foundation.
As a barista at the caffeine chain, Tandy sang his way onto the radar of indie label RedStar Entertainment, which quickly signed him. His lead single “March” quickly hit No. 3 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Chart, becoming the first song by an independent artist to do so on that particular chart.
Coming off an impressive showing at the Essence Music Festival and an opening spot on Marsha Ambrosius' tour, the Republic Records signee is taking the spotlight for himself with The Foundation (out July 29). Check out a sneak peek from his album via the new track, "Shameless," below (upcoming tour stops listed, too).
