Biography

Guy (born Ottawa, ON) is an exceptionally talented singer, guitarist and songwriter. He plays original songs either solo, or with a band. Guy is a seasoned performer, having sang at many large shows with 'MacCrimmon's Revenge', including the Vancouver Folk Festival, the Halifax Jazz Festival, Celtic Colours, the Lunenburg Folk Festival (twice), Atlantic Airwaves (three times).

In the spring of 1996, Guy luckily performed for The Corrs for 2 hours at an empty club in Halifax, NS. Then that September, he co-headlined Atlantic Airwaves along with Damhnait Doyle.

Guy's 2005 debut won the USA Songwriting Competition sponsored "One to Watch" designation. His track 'In A Dream' stayed on garageband.com's top 10 throughout that summer.

On February 28, 2013, Guy released his 2nd album, which is more upbeat, tuneful, and diverse. Several radio stations have already expressed their interest in the material.

His influences range from singer-songwriters (ie James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Jim Croce, Paul Simon, Neil Young) to powerpop (ie The Beatles, Cheap Trick, XTC, Elvis Costello, Barenaked Ladies, Joe Jackson, Steve Miller).
