Boy George (born George Alan O'Dowd 14 June 1961 in Eltham, London) is a an English singer-songwriter, who was part of the English New Romantic movement which emerged in the early 1980s. He helped give androgyny an international stage with the success of Culture Club during the 1980s. His music is often classified as blue-eyed soul, which is influenced by rhythm and blues and reggae. His 1990s and 2000s-era solo music has glam influences such as David Bowie and Iggy Pop. Being involved in many art forms (songwriting, Djing, writing books, designing clothes, taking photography and many more), he released less music materials in the last decade, although a new single, entitled "Yes We Can" is gonna be released digitally on October 12th.
