One thing most artists don’t realize is the advantage a producer can bring to their music. Guy is a professional who excels in translating the artist’s vision into reality. He has a keen ear for composition, arrangement, and sound design, allowing him to enhance the creative aspects of the song. Also. producing music involves a myriad of technical elements that can be overwhelming for independent artists. Guy brings a wealth of technical expertise to the table, enabling him to handle various aspects of the production process with finesse. The collaboration between Guy and his artist is a dynamic and symbiotic relationship. While the artist may have a clear vision for their music, Guy acts as a trusted partner who can provide objective feedback and constructive criticism. He can help refine ideas, suggest improvements, and make informed decisions throughout the production process. All it really takes to get started is a melody, some rough lyrics, and an emotional objective.
Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, Guy moved to Florida in 1989 and became part of the South Florida music scene when he started playing with alt rock bands The Uninvited and Numb. His first album production released in 1995 as a solo project using experimental recording techniques that integrated acoustic instruments with sequenced drums and guitar synthesizers. From that time, he continued to push the recorded music envelope with a foray into remixing, electronic music, and live performance production. Guy recently graduated from The Berklee College of Music with a master’s degree in music production which marked a noteworthy milestone in his professional career.
After experiencing the high costs of commercial studio rentals and engineering fees, and knowing most emerging songwriters and artists find it hard to justify spending thousands-upon-thousands of dollars for a commercial studio recording, given the unfair distribution of streaming royalties, Guy decided to start a service that would be more affordable to them.
Using the same microphones and front-end recording gear found in top-rated commercial studios, Guy makes it easy for the artist by bringing the studio to them and at a fraction of the cost. In addition, Guy streamlines the production process by using his project studio for pre-production, overdub sessions, and vocal production saving the artist both time and money.
Guy’s most recent work has been a full length album with The Smokeboss Militia releasing on December 5th, an EP with solo artist T Rouse that released on August 30th, and a single with LA artist Kenneith Perrin that released earlier this year. Currently he is working with The Cravens on their next album and a follow up EP by T Rouse.
Guy is a proud member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP). He has been trained by some of the top producers and engineers in the business including Sean Slade (Radiohead, Hole, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Warren Zevon, Lou Reed, Joe Jackson), Susan Rogers (Prince, Barenaked Ladies, David Byrne, Tricky, Tevin Campbell), Richard Medelson (Rihanna, Nicole Scherzinger, Fergie, Garbage), and Prince Charles Alexander (Mary J. Blige, Destiny's Child, Faith Evans, P. Diddy, the Notorious B.I.G., Usher, Boyz II Men, Brandy, Babyface, Sting, Aretha Franklin, Usher, Brian McKnight).
