By the mid 70’s, after much encouragement from his parents, Guy packed the guitar out of his bedroom and headed for the bright lights of the tool shed, where his music would be less aggravating to the rest of the household. I've played in a number of local bands to varying degrees of obscurity. My current incarnation is as a solo acoustic performer, which suits me best.

My influences include SRV, Black Crowes, Cracker, John Hammond, Howlin Wolf, Little Feat, as well as Warren Zevon, Elvis Costello and John Prine, to name only a few.

I've been working across New England as a solo acoustic performer for over fifteen years, rendering a quirky percussive mixture of blues and classic rock as the foundation of the list, and throwing in some of my own songs when I can sneak them in there.

The recorded original music is fleshed out with rythm section and skews decidedly more electric.

Here are some excerpts from recent reviews of Guy’s recorded material:

DEMORAMA’S TOP HONORS “KICKERS OF ASS” LIST, REVIEW BY LUIS FISKE: “With a solid voice that's a combo of David Clayton-Thomas, Springsteen (sans the pretentiousness) and his own stylings, Bergeron nimbly handles a variety of sounds, touching on jazz, blues, folk, country and intelligent pop.”

SPLENDID EZINE'S ANDREW MAGILOW: "Guy Bergeron is a genre-defying musical anomaly. Bergeron does a superb job parting the muddy waters between blues and contemporary indie rock."

MUSES MUSE REVIEWER STACEY BOARD: “Guy's bio says he is a native of Massachusetts but someone must be UPSing him some grits and gravy. This East Coast man has more than his share of twang and blues in his music.”
