Chris Guy aka. Clev
With his portastudio, keyboard, drum machine, and guitar, singer/ arranger/ programmer Clev (born Chris Guy in Ft. Saint. John B.C. Sept.28 1978) is destine to create music that celebrates the funk culture of the of the new millennium. Clev's music draws from hip-hop, B-Box, electronic, acid jazz, pop, and R&B, recycling everything into a colorful, tricky, and willfully diverse brand of postmodern Soul.
With all of his rootless eclecticism, Clev is distinctly a product of the 21st century. Some of his influences were processed through the punk movement and snow-skate board culture. Growing up in a sleepy town of Nanaimo, B.C. away from the hustle and bustle, Clev’s unique musical inspiration is born from the spirit of the land and sea around him.
Clev started playing piano at the early age of five because of his mother, a piano teacher. He went on to claim his own by winning recitals and establishing a grade ten level Toronto conservatory certificate. He came to attention in early 90's, when he recorded a CD with a high school rock band.
As he prepared for life after high school Clev now had grasped sense of rhythmic knowledge and pursued a passion for programming. Saxophone, Bass, Guitar, Keys, Drums and a vast knowledge of musical theory were the instruments in his repertoire. Clev left home armed with years of musical promise and embarked on a recording arts master program in Burnaby B.C. earning him a diploma as an audio engineer.
Clev teamed up with Roger Swan, an engineer at Hipposonic, and now has engineering and producing credits with popular groups such as, Swollen Members, The Rascals, Moka only…etc. Clev’s musical flavor is destining to be stated, documented in his passion and concentration of composition. At 24 Clev’s ingenious qualities, strength, and love is fortified by family and friends ready and willing to make his voice a force that stands the test of time.
