How much power does music have? “More than we realise,” Guy Buttery says. When he picked up a guitar as a child, he didn’t anticipate how this would come to resonate in his life. Buttery was simply adding to the tunes of his musically-inclined family. By the age of 12, he was already writing his own melodies and lyrics.

Today he uses his extensive talent as a fingerstyle guitarist to blend the sounds of South Africa. Read Guy Buttery's full story here.
