Interviews with and articles about George Pelecanos
You can find George's songwriting debut on "...Tick...Tick...Tick" by Steve Wynn & The Miracle 3. Steve and George wrote "Cindy, It Was Always You" together via email (George contributed the lyrics, Steve came up with the music) in 2003 and the song has been getting lots of radio play and was called a "stalker creep-out" by the Boston Globe. The CD is available at most stores or at SteveWynn.net where you can also find the bio that George wrote for Steve's "Here Come the Miracles" CD (click on "press material.")
