All this is since graduating from SAE Institute back in 2004, but Guy’s most recent success comes as a result of engineering Scottish act The View. He can’t take all of the credit for the chart-topping album, but he is responsible for four of the tracks, including “Same Jeans”, the indie-guitar-stomper that peaked at number 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
Guy puts his success down to hard work and a passion for music, but in addition he acknowledges the role his education has played in his rise to the top, having completed SAE London’s Audio Engineering Diploma course in 2004. But even with his phenomenal success Guy’s reluctant to stop learning — only last year he returned to SAE London to complete a degree in Recording Arts alongside his continuing work at Soho Recording Studios. “In terms of audio engineering, SAE put everything in the right place in my head — and that’s what makes the difference between semi-pro and pro.”
