George Dussault, the founder of Gallilee Productions, is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, engineer and composer. Over the last 20 years his work in each of these fields has been featured on countless CD releases and in hundreds of live performances. As a music educator, he teaches guitar, bass and music theory to over forty students weekly. In addition to his impressive recording resume, George spends a large amount of time on stage. For several years he led the seminal band Spiney Norman.  In the course of their years together they released two full-length CD's of original music and gigged extensively.  George has plans to resurrect the project in 2013. In 2005 legendary Rash of Stabbings/Schemers drummer and long-time friend Bob Giusti approached George about producing a local acoustic artist he was working for named Kris Hansen. They met and an instant and incredible partnership began, with George acting as not only producer, engineer and musician for Kris but also acting as his musical soundboard. After two rock albums as Kris Hansen's Left Hand Band, the duo took a left turn towards the psychedelic with Viking Jesus. Their first, self-titled CD was released in December of 2012 to amazing reviews, and George has been performing with Kris and VJ members John Amitrano, Nick Iddon and Uriah Donnely ever since. A second CD is nearly complete, and a third acoustic CD is also in the works.  In 2008 he became a performing member of The Rhythm Room, which began as a fantastic percussion ensemble founded by Rick Morin.  George brought not only his skills as a produce/engineer to the table but also began contributing as a composer and all-around musician.  A third CD (Groove Infusion) was released in late 2011 and a forth is underway. The eight-piece group continues to perform regularly and no end is in sight.
