much-praised 1995 debut, Stomp
Down the Rider on Red House Records, marked the arrival of
a major talent, earning acclaim for his deft acoustic playing, his
well-traveled voice and his literate, yet highly accessible
songwriting. He's barely rested since then, taking his music to
television (the Conan O'Brien and David Letterman shows) and radio (A
Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, World Cafe, E-Town), as well as
performing at theaters and festivals. And he's played the four corners
of the world, with a recent tour taking him from the Equator to the
Arctic Circle. He played the Ukraine in summer of 2014, just a week or
so before the statues of Lenin were torn down. He even played for the
visiting Queen of Denmark when he performed at a children's home in
Kidd, Guy's twelfth studio album and his follow-up to the
stripped-down, critically acclaimed 2013 release "Juba dance", produced
in Italy by Fabrizio. As always he combines modern with traditional
blues, the somber and the celebratory.
