George Ezra Launches His You Oughta Know Campaign By Making Us All Swoon In 60 Seconds

We gave our newest You Oughta Know artist George Ezra the greatest test of all: the VH1 Stop/Watch Challenge. And he nailed it! We get all we really need in this stripped down version of his song “Budapest.” George Ezra has no need to get fancy with his performance, just a simple guitar and his sultry voice.

George Ezra comes to us from across the pond, like so many of our YOK alums, and pulls his influence from folk greats like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie. His debut studio album Wanted on Voyage was released June of last year, and his single “Budapest” has topped charts all over the world. Needless to say, we are happy to welcome George Ezra to our You Oughta Know family.

As if the Stop/Watch wasn’t enough of a challenge, we threw another curve ball his way: our Rapid-Fire Interview. Get to know George Ezra in the most high-pressure interview out there.

Be sure to look at our video gallery to see all of the Stop/Watch artists who gave it their best effort to beat the clock, plus more personal interviews.
