Bump n’ Grind

Director

George Williams

In early 2019 George’s world was turned on it’s head with the sudden and tragic loss of his old man. Soon after, George quit his full time job in finance to travel the world and put his dad to rest in his childhood town. After much soul-searching and a big shift in perspective on life, George realised the importance of following his passion for strong relationships, his love for music and creativity. Being constantly surrounded by amazing talent in Tasmania and seeing the huge potential in local artists, George became motivated to help push them to the top and put Tassie on the map. Bump n’ Grind was born.
