BandRockSinger/Songwriter

David Guy's music is unrestrained and introspective influenced by real life experiences-pain, loss, joy, love. This is music as an autobiography of the events, people and things that affected and shaped David's view of the world and are present in most everyone's lives.

Biography

The record "Undertow" started out as David's attempt to put into words, music - something, anything - to express some of the real-life issues he faced in his youth and as an adult. As an introverted child and product of an absent father and doting mother- there were lots of things boiling up to a breaking point in David's life. He turned to music as an adult, at nearly age 25, and started to appreciate the outlet it provided. Playing guitar for hours became an obsession and, over time, he found a friend in the six strings he fiddled with endlessly. His knack for songwriting began to develop shortly thereafter and lyrics began to flow out which expressed his hidden feelings in a way he never realized before. His music is greatly influenced by the passion of such artists as Jeff Buckley, Neil Young, Pink Floyd and REM. All the years of keeping things inside were finally behind him and he concentrated on honing his songwriting skills to be able to put the pain, loss, anger and, in many cases, happiness and love into song. Music as a catharsis was what drove David to decide to record and produce his debut record- "Undertow". The title is fitting in that the songs reflect the issues and feelings that are hidden inside but run deep in many of us. David has always been drawn to water in his own life and the idea of music as a cleansing also applies. This debut record represents a lifetime of feelings put into a very short capsule but powerful and expressive nonetheless.

Dave began collaborating with Lisa Lim in early '07 as the duo "Flaming Red Horizon". Lisa is an accomplished singer-songwriter in her own right but is well known for her phenomenal guitar playing skills. She is also adept at keyboards, bass and drums bringing a multi-faceted talent to the duo. Joining the group are musical talents Tim Gregson on bass guitar and Bob Osborn on drums. Flaming Red Horizon aims to put on a high energy, fun performance every time.
