“… his music has a subtle grace and power all of its own. Though his technical prowess is also bewildering, Buttery immerses himself entirely into the soul of his guitar, coaxing sonic shapes and forms of such startling originality that his instrument acts as a kind of lightning conductor for the sound of another realm.” 

- Mail & Guardian 

“I am moved by Guy Buttery's musical language and journey: this musician from South Africa is painting a framework, transforming his roots and the richness of his mixed culture into an inspired language that has become very personal and yet universal. This is touching, refreshing and amazing to witness."  

- Pierre Bensusan

“Expect to experience some of the most innovative and unique dexterity in the manipulation of an age-old musical apparatus that you’ll hardly recognise the sounds that emanate as coming from a simple guitar."   

- One Small Seed Network

"Buttery's avant-garde world music is exceptionally beautiful - from composition to technique to atmospherics. "Fox Hill Lane" is one of the most adventurous acoustic recordings in recent memory."
