George A. Santino is a Seattle-area singer, writer and motivational speaker who is making the most of his second career by embracing his passion for performing and storytelling. Recently retired from a fulfilling career at Microsoft, George has left the rat race for the Rat Pack. Recently recording two new albums “Come Fly with Me,” a collection of crooner classics in George’s own unique style and The Magic Of Christmas a collection of all the old holiday favorites with a new modern vibe. This holiday CD also includes his first original single which is also called The Magic Of Christmas.
Having been bitten by the songwriting bug and the success of his first original single, which spawned a music video on You Tube that has over 214,000 views, George has continued to write, recently releasing two new songs When You Walked Through The Door and As The One That Got Away. Both songs were well received by his fans.
In addition to music, George is working on a new booked called Get Back Up that relates the stories of the struggles and challenges he faced while forging ahead towards his dream.
Born in Philadelphia, PA to a family struggling to provide and growing up in a housing project where poverty and violence had a profound effect on his upbringing, George has a uniquely American story to tell. Now retired from Microsoft with children in college and a long loving marriage, George’s story is one of finding your own way, achieving success through sheer will (and some luck), and returning to your passion no matter what.
