Charles Guy grew up in North Carolina where he was exposed to bluegrass, soul, and Carolina beach music. This influence, plus his long time love of Spanish flamenco guitar and recent sojourns south of the border, have culminated in an eclectic sound, all his own.
Charles can often be found performing around the Rogue Valley with cellist Daniel Sperry. Daniel brings with him a rich background in performance as well as symphonic work. He recorded in Nashville with various groups before making his way to southern Oregon.
Daniel's earthy cello infuses a spice of celtic and soul into Charles' style. The confluence of Charles' Spanish influenced guitar and Daniel's haunting melodies come together to create a flowing sound of their own.
"Sakes Alive" is a self-produced album from Charles Guy, featuring the work of cellist Daniel Sperry. The album is a 9-track escapade through flamenco flavored tunes of latin style guitar.
