Guy Schwartz is indescribable; he is a musician, bandleader of several bands including Z-Rocks and The New Jack Hippies, respected guitar and bass player, prolific recording artist, songwriter, videographer, music journalist, and advocate for local Houston musicians, showcased by his work on South by Due East. He has been dubbed a musical chameleon because his music pays respect to influences from folk, zydeco, and jam bands, just to name a few. The list of artists he's played with and stages he's graced is unmatched -- and he's even run for president. Houston, a multicultural melting pot, seems an appropriate place to call home for Guy, who has matured into a musician who's absorbed all genres of American music and made them his own.
