Born and raised in a small rural town in Israel, Guy first arrived in the US, on tour at the age of 16. Five years after he returned to the United States. After a short stay in Memphis and a stint in New Orleans, Guy headed north to Chicago in pursuit of greater things and a musical career. In Chicago, Guy quickly gained recognition, and joined Willie Kent’s band, serving as his lead guitarist and band leader for a period of six years, until Kent’s passing in 2006, when Guy started his solo career, performing at the city’s top venues, such as: Buddy Guy’s Legends, Andy’s Jazz Club, House of Blues, The Green Mill, S.P.A.C.E., B.L.U.E.S., Rosa’s Lounge and others.

Some of his appearances include the Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago Blues Festival, Chicago Jazz Festival, King Biscuit Festival (Helena, Arkansas), Blues on the Fox, The Paramount Theatre, Polanco Blues Festival (Mexico City, Mexico), Wespelaar (Belgium), Mississippi Delta Festival (Caxias Do Sul, Brazil), Basel Blues Festival (Switzerland) and many more.Named as Chicago’s Latest Royalty by Vintage Guitar Magazine, he continues to perform, write and record new material with an ear sensibly tilted toward producing great music: taking the varied music he loves and recasting it in new directions.
