R&B artist George Tandy, Jr., the son of musicians Candi Tandy and George Tandy, Sr., attended high school in Virginia, where he learned to play several instruments and developed his talent. Thanks to encouragement from his mother, Tandy moved to Florida and concentrated on singing, songwriting, and playing keyboards while working as a hip-hop dancer. The independent RedStar label signed him and released his debut single, the understated and mature ballad "March," in September 2013. Closer to early John Legend and introspective Robin Thicke than most contemporary R&B releases by artists Tandy's age, the song quickly reached Billboard's Adult R&B chart.
