G I Y O
Giyo is the stage and production name of Olly Guy (born 14th August 1988), a British musician based in the south west of the United Kingdom.
Olly is a classically trained guitarist, multi instrumentalist and producer of an eclectic mix of genres.
His sound revolves around classical and world roots, with a heavy emphasis on electronic synths and beats.
Giyo doesn't like to describe his music as any particular genre, though he often releases music under the subtitles of trip hop, world, classical, jazz, electronic, ambient and industrial.
Tracks such as "Repertoire", "Parisian Girl" and "I Wanna Get High With You" have built Giyo a loyal fan base, and he considers himself lucky to be on speaking terms with some of the musicians who have inspired him over the years.
Giyo has remixed a track for French producer 'CloZee', worked with various other artists on projects of theirs and his own, and written music for film under the name Giyo and other pseudonyms (a line of work he intends to focus on more seriously in the future).
Olly constantly builds, destroys and rebuilds live set concepts.
Olly has stated many times he never has and never intends to sample other musicians work to create his own. All of Giyo's music is written, performed, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Olly Guy.
Since 2016 Giyo has created all of the artwork for his music.
Olly is both a type 1 diabetic and cluster headache warrior.
Giyo: pronounced "Guy-Oh" literally comes from his second name and first initial.
