George Becker, Lead Singer/Guitarist/Front Man and creative force behind the rock band “Jaded Past” got his start in music the old fashioned way…with the lure of bright lights and shady women.
Since his high school days George has grown and maintained a reputation as a skilled songwriter and a dynamic front man. George credits his influences to bands like T-Rex, The New York Dolls, Kiss and Bon Jovi, along with a heavy dose of Steven Tyler.
Honing his craft in the bands “Hex” and “Rat Salad” he became well known for his wicked charm and stellar vocals, becoming an icon and consistent draw on the local NJ / NY music scene. In 1985 George exploded onto the national scene with his glam hard rock band “Wicked Sin”. With a pending record deal with Atlantic records, their reputation grew all along the east coast for their sold out live shows and notorious backstage exploits. Creative differences and internal turmoil led to Georges departure and re-emergence as a solo artist, singer and front man for several “A” list cover bands most recently “If 6Was 9” and “10 Minute Lincoln”
A subsequent reunion and the recording of Wicked Sin’s - Strictly for Pleasure album in 2009 stoked the musical fire and led to a final triumphant performance in September 2010.
In November 2011 a new chapter began with the emergence of “Jaded Past”. A mainstream, original rock band, with a high energy live show, has been tearing up the scene with a sound reminiscent of Bret Michaels, Motley Crue and early Aerosmith.
A self titled debut album Jaded Past was released in early 2012 and was co-produced by Steve Brown of “Trixter”. The album features the songs “One Step Closer”, “Taken”, "Traces" and the current single “Hurt”, which have become crowd favorites and have earned huge viewership on YouTube.
A recent trip to Nashville has led to a creative explosion and collaborations that are crafting the sound of his next record.
