Guy Lilleyman (aka Guyy)
Guyy has been involved in the music business for the entirety of his professional career, starting as a guitarist & songwriter and continuing as an engineer.
Guyy began his musical journey by quitting a full time job as a 3D animator to busk around Australia, diving in headfirst with a guitar filled, crappy old van and a really really good road side assistance package.
After establishing himself as a soloist and winning the 2013 MAMA award for best Blues & Roots artist as well as claiming the Australian Nation Busking Championship two years in a row, Guyy teamed up with Amelia to create the duo Guyy & The Fox. The pair would go on to tour in 3 different countries and perform at dozens of Australian festivals over the next 4 years.
In 2015 Guyy set out to build a recording studio in Canberra. The process took nearly a year and in 2016 with the studio complete, Guyy recorded the first project at Amberly Studios - The debut Guyy & the Fox EP.
“During the process of trying to figure out how to get the sound that was in my head to come out of the speakers, I found a new passion for audio and sound production - The perfect combo of my previous life as a nerd, and my love of music.”
Fast forward 4 years and Amberly Studios is a powerhouse of local music production, serving dozens of bands and artists in the local Canberra music scene as well as interstate acts.
Specialising in Rock and Folk/Roots music - Guyy draws on nearly a decade of song writing and performing to bring out the best in the artist he works with.
Guyy has worked with dozens of local and interstate bands, from emerging to established artists, to create music that has been aired on Triple J as well as going on to win national awards.
"I've been producing, engineering and mixing music for the past 5 years as well as maintaining a career as a performing musician since 2012.
I've worked hard to build a studio that will help Canberra and Australian artists flourish - I'm passionate about local music, and as a musician myself, understand the overwhelming nature of recording.
I want you to know that the music you've worked your butt off to create is in the hands of someone who knows what they're doing and cares about your music.
I want to see your music do the best it possibly can.
I'm here to make your songs sound great. That's it.
