Biography

Guy B. was born in Israel to parents of Moroccan descent; at the tender age of 3, he immigrated to America. His last name Baruch means BLESSED in Hebrew. Guy spent his childhood growing up in North Hollywood, Ca, a city populated by nearly every race, creed, color, nationality and religion. In addition, his Jewish upbringing and strong family traditions allowed for a truly unique and diverse perspective on life and people.

His interest in music was first sparked by hearing the greatest voices and songwriters of his generation, including Whitney Houston, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Boyz II Men, Brian McKnight, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Ben Harper, John Mayer and Mariah Carey. With a desire to make people feel the way these amazing musicians made him feel when he heard them, Guy created his own unique style, affected and inspired by soul music and includes a middle eastern global sound featuring pop elements mixed with R & B and hip hop.

In his early experiences in music Guy helped form and became the lead singer in a group called Evolution. The band reflected the diversity he appreciated while growing up in North Hollywood. Writers, arrangers, and producers of their own material, Evolution began touring Northern California before embarking on a nine-month tour of Japan. They had a permanent gig at Universal Studios in Osaka, playing five sold-out shows, five days a week captivating Japanese fans.

Upon returning from Japan in 2004, the band members decided that Evolution had reached an end. On his own now, Guy B built a recording studio that he had long envisioned and began writing and recording an independent record that was honest and sincerely represented his journey. In his solo debut record, “Within Me”, Guy B captures and celebrates the struggles, joys, love, loss, fear, and sexual expression of the human condition.
Guy B executive produced and helped conceptualize his debut music video. The choreographer and directors of “Within Me” have choreographed and co directed both Madonna and Pink’s last tour. “Within Me” was on rotation on the MTV Logo Network for 15 weeks and held strong as one of the top 10 video on MTV Logo for over 12 weeks.
A big fan of the dance remixes, Guy B collaborated with superstar Dj Manny Lehman on a magnificent dance remix to his CD title track “Within Me”. Manny Lehman has remixed hits for the likes of Janet Jackson and Madonna. Guy has also teamed up with Dj Scotty K and created an upbeat celebration house mix of his incredible second single to “So What”. Scotty K has a Billboard #1 dance remix for Christina Aguilera “Ain’t No Other Man”
Before recently returning from a 6 week tour in Japan, Guy B was performing for a cause he believes in strongly. He joined the likes of Justin Timberlake and Wyclef Jean raising money and benefiting music education for kids through the Macy Gray Music School Academy. Guy B opened up for Deborah Cox at the 2007 Pride Ball in Las Vegas.
