A message from Guy to you:
Thank you for visiting my site.
Music is what I do, and who I am. It’s an enormous privilege to be able to make music – and a massive thrill when people listen and appreciate it. As you’ve got this far, I guess I need to say a big “thank you for listening”. It really does make it all worthwhile.
Primarily, I think of myself as a songwriter. The joy of conceiving an idea, crafting it, gelling the rhythms and the music, honing the words to the point where the song says what I want it to say, then putting it all down on record.
Beyond that, there’s no greater fun that playing live, sharing the stage with some great musicians, feeding – and feeding off – the buzz of the audience.
Whether we meet online, through the records, or at a gig, thanks for making it all worthwhile. Stay cool, and keep rocking!”
