Guy Buttery has used the Southern tip of Africa as the beautiful backdrop for his new track – A Million Things.


South Africa (06 October 2020) – Guy Buttery was born in a small coastal town outside of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and has found a way to play his unique style of guitar that is deeply South African while also speaking a global musical language.

There’s credibility to his being described by pundits as a South African musical treasure. He studied Jazz at Kwa-Zulu Natal Technikon with Nibs van der Spuy and later on at the Durban School of Music, where he studied classical guitar with Leandros Stavrou for a brief period.

Guy’s distinct unification of South African guitar music is the musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place he calls home. An ambassador of South African music, Guy inspires people across the world with his homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity.

However, to simply label Guy Buttery as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. His international role has surpassed merely performing concerts to foreign audiences. It has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with his homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity.
