George Huntley Wikipedia
George Huntley is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter, best known as a member of The Connells from 1985 to 2001.
Huntley was a childhood friend of brothers David and Mike Connell and had opened as a solo act for The Connells at many of their early shows. After the band began playing larger shows and had a song featured on the Dolphin Records' More Mondo compilation, Huntley expressed interest in joining the band. Shortly after he graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1984, he became a member of the band and made his debut on the 1985 Hats Off EP, produced by Don Dixon. Up until 1991 with the addition of keyboardist Steve Potak, Huntley played both lead guitar and keyboards in the band, often switching between both during the same song. He also wrote and sang lead vocals on numerous Connells songs such as "Sal", "Home Today", and "Doin' You". In 1996, he released his first and only solo album titled Brainjunk.
After the release of The Connells' 8th album Old School Dropouts, Huntley left the band to spend time on family life and pursue interests in realty. Currently, he owns and operates Huntley Realty LLC.
