“Isn’t that great!” Mike Naylor – BBC Three Counties Radio (BREATHE single)
“That will be going round your brain for the rest of the day I can tell you.” Mike Naylor – BBC Three Counties Radio (Weathered The Storm single)
“Pete Guy has the contemporary folk-pop sound down to a tee.” Sean McGhee – R2 Rock’n'Reel Magazine
“Pete offers a lifetime of lyrics full to the brim with redemption, ably showcasing his beguiling voice and raw sincerity.” Fatea Magazine
“Pete performs his own upbeat and catchy material, which has become very popular on many of the local and community stations around the country and has also caught the ear of producers on national radio…” Spiral Earth Magazine
“A little bit of magic for you, it’s Pete Guy…” Baylen Leonard – Amazing Radio (Houdini single)
“I think he’s the most accomplished songwriter here tonight, really love your voice, you’ve got a very interesting tone to your voice, you had a good energy on the stage.” Glen Matlock – Sex Pistols
“Calm, collected, imaginative and cheerful – Guy is on course to becoming a live and recorded favourite, a crowd pleaser, a lovely man, a musical treasure.” Sarah Lowther – Radio Dacorum
“Really like the ‘sea’ theme that keeps recurring. Thoughtful lyrics and lovely melodies. There’s a wee Waterboys feel to quite a few of the songs which I love.”
Yvonne Lyon – singer / songwriter
“I liked that, the idea of styling yourself after a 1940′s Jewish solicitor is an intriguing approach, but you don’t look like anyone else, you don’t sound like anyone else and the songs are good, I really liked that.” Gareth ‘Gaz Top’ Jones – T.V. Presenter
“But this is something different, something new. As the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention, I’m transported back to the first time I heard Damien Rice, then further still to my first introduction to Jeff Buckley. There’s a raw sincerity here that not every artist has the talent to convey.”
Joe Ferris – Abolish Records
“You know that feeling where you don’t really fancy an orange, but you eat one anyway and your body kinda goes “Oh yeah! That hit the spot. I ruddy well needed that!” because your body just knows when something is good for it? Well listening to Pete Guy is like pouring a delicious and nutritious fruit smoothie into your ears and your ears going “Oh yeah! That’s the stuff!”
