Washington D.C.-based musician George Katsos is no stranger to the music scene. This seasoned performer, revered for his Beatles’ covers and celebrated for his unique blend of ’60s British rock and Motown sounds, has been consistently producing heart-touching music over the past few decades. This May, Katsos added a new flavor to his discography with his latest single, “Pickle Juice,” a fresh offering that’s set to feature on his upcoming EP3.
Released on May 19, 2023, “Pickle Juice” provides listeners with a unique auditory experience. The songwriting is, as usual, superb. This track is a reflection of his musical journey, one that began in the open mics of Washington D.C., took him to the historic Cambridge Music Complex outside Boston, and has now led him back to his roots, drawing on the quintessential American music forms.
Remembering his experience at the Cambridge Music Complex, where iconic bands like Boston, Aerosmith, The Cars, and The J. Geils Band had previously performed, George said, “That night was a turning point for me, a moment that solidified my desire to make music. There’s a spirit, a kind of raw energy in music that I wanted to capture.” “Pickle Juice,” in many ways, is a manifestation of that spirit.
The song precedes Katsos’s third official EP, titled EP3, due for release later this year. The anticipation for EP3 is already high, given the international acclaim George has garnered over the years. “Pickle Juice” serves as an appetizing prelude to what listeners can expect from EP3. George Katsos’s ability to explore new styles while maintaining his authentic sound is a testament to his creativity and musicianship. If you haven’t yet tasted this Pickle Juice, now’s the time to savor it. Check out the song for yourself on Spotify or wherever you stream music.
