George Daly is a music executive, songwriter, musician, video and music producer, award-winning film director and technology inventor who originally worked as an A&R (Artist & Repertoire) music executive. In that role he worked with and/or introduced many notable artists, with famed artists and groups as varied as Janis Joplin, The Tubes, The Cars, Tool (band), Huey Lewis, and Carlos Santana and others. Artists, to whose efforts Daly has contributed, have sold recorded music in vinyl, CD and digital form over 40 years, in excess of 300 million copies.
Moving from the Washington, DC area to San Francisco in the ‘60’s, Daly befriended Janis Joplin and, due to that link, was eventually hired by Columbia Records as San Francisco Head of A&R spanning the Clive Davis and Goddard Lieberson eras. Daly followed this up with being named head and founder of A&R at Elektra/Asylum Records, followed by his direct hiring by legendary label chief Ahmet Ertegun at Atlantic Records (WMG), and Zoo Entertainment (Bertelsmann Music Group /BMG) where he was again named Vice President and head of A&R. Daly is the recipient of multiple Gold and Platinum awards.
As a significant executive in the music industry, Daly has discovered such original music talents as the seminal new-wave group The Cars (whom he signed to a long-term Elektra/Asylum deal on a paper napkin, after their live performance at Harvard University where his sister was attending) whose first album, The Cars, stayed on the charts for an astonishing 139 Weeks and sold over six million copies in the US, the radical Bay Area surreal pop performers, The Tubes, who he brought to A&M Records, as well as contracting modern theatrical rockers, Green Jelly, who morphed into modern edge Multi-Platinum rockers, Tool and many others. In addition, in various roles Mr. Daly has also worked professionally with many of the classic music legends, such as Roy Buchanan and Nils Lofgren and including writing with Boz Scaggs his seminal ballad 'Slow Dancer', of the Scaggs album of the same name, considered by some as Scaggs' greatest musical achievement, producing Huey Lewis as well as Carlos Santana by serving as the Executive Producer and Line Producer of the Carlos Santana interactive video life story DVD, working closely with Santana as well as Alice Coltrane for the include John Coltrane Material and the Jimi Hendrix family for the Hendrix material in the award-winning The River of Color and Sound
