Coming Apart Again is a brilliant piece of gothic pop that's dark, moody...

Some people are so talented it can make you angry. George Barnett is one such person but I'll forgive him because he certainly knows how to write a tune or two.
The 18 year old musician has already been music for 15 years (yes, since he was three) and can pick up pretty much any instrument including...
