George Duron is an Austin, Texas-based drummer and recording artist. George has done the long slog of Texas beer joints and live music clubs since the 1980s, while also touring Europe, South America and all over the US. He’s toured with artists including psychedelic pioneer, Roky Erickson, Sally Crewe, Tommy Keene, Doug Gillard, Jon Dee Graham, Rich Hopkins, Sidewinders/Sand Rubies, The Summer Wardrobe, Dumptruck and Clay McClinton. From Paradiso in Amsterdam to The Troubadour in L.A., he’s spent plenty of miles on the road.

Closer to home he’s successfully maintained a career as a professional musician, from accompanying delicate singer-songwriters to playing bombastic cosmic country on the ACL Festival stage.  He’s performed with Grammy-nominated Abra Moore, Wesley Stace (John Wesley Harding), Alejandro Escovedo, Dan Stuart (Green On Red), Billy Harvey, Miles Zuniga (Fastball), Ralph’s World, The Hard Pans, Kevin Russell (Shinyribs/Gourds), The Skunks, Jimmy Ryan (Blood Oranges/Morphine), Rob Halverson Trio, Anne McCue, Star Hustler, Brandy Zdan, Jenifer Jackson, Tom Heyman, Dickie Lee Erwin, Zoumountchi, Stone Wheels, Balloonatic, plus countless others.

Including regular work at a half dozen Austin studios, George is known as a ‘song drummer’ who endeavors to play for the song and chase down ‘the take’ as well as expertly embellishing a track with percussion overdubs if the song calls for it. His recording résumé includes dozens of releases by artists including Doug Gillard, The Summer Wardrobe, Sally Crewe, Dumptruck, Jon Dee Graham, Andrew Duplantis (Son Volt), Kirk Swan, Matt Devine (Medicine), JM Stevens, Rich Hopkins, Seth Tiven, MAD6, Lucas Hudgins and Kevin Galloway (Uncle Lucius).

George is currently available for touring (US / international), recording sessions, and is adept at last-minute fill-ins. He’s also helmed many theme-night house bands thanks in part to his proven versatility and listening skills that provide cohesion when 25 different singers try their hand at classics from David Bowie to Dolly Parton.
