Beneath The Branches EP

“…this is a departure for you and I really like the big sound – full of good melody, good playing and good production – excellent!” Mike Naylor BBC Three Counties Radio

“The new release from Pete Guy instantly hits you as not being what you expect from him. There’s a much more live band/indie feel which takes him out of the singer songwriter genre but it is all still underpinned with his beautiful storytelling. It is…dare I say it… quite 90s/early 00s in its production. Reminding me of bands like Saves the Day and Feeder. He even has a bit of a Jarvis Cocker twang to his vocal if you ask me!
It is the kind of music which can emotionally move you at the same time as making you tap your toe.
‘Light As A Feather’ is the standout track for me and is the one I have had on repeat.
It isn’t full of frills… it is quite simply a really beautiful song which, for how I read it, was the advice I needed to hear at the time.
It is calm, it meanders, it is non-assuming, humble and by the time you’ve finished listening you feel like a feather could knock you down. A bit like Pete himself.
Possibly one of the nicest and most humble men on the circuit – it is perhaps easy to forget, because he doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles, that he is one of the best songwriters we have. I hope lots of people hear this EP.

I also love music which has considered artwork – something which is fading away a little in the digital age – so I am pleased each song has it’s own accompanying image.” – Minnie Birch Singer/Songwriter

“Really enjoyed your new sound, yes it has more volume but it remains an intimate, warm sound. Can’t wait for more!” – Veronique Gasseau Dryer

“Really Like the different style that you have come up with to your past song’s! Brilliant…” – Kevin Thompson

“Swim (Deeper Down) is excellent – I love the piano and the perfect live sound! And great rhythm on Light As A Feather!” – Rob Forrester Western Electric Sound System/This Picture
