Guy Finley (born February 22, 1949) is an American self-help writer, philosopher, and spiritual teacher, and former professional songwriter and musician.
The son of late-night talk show pioneer Larry Finley, Finley grew up in the Los Angeles, California area where many of his childhood friends were the children of celebrities. At a young age, he decided to pursue a music career. He became the first white soft rock artist signed to the Motown Records label. While never achieving commercial success as a recording artist, several of his songs were recorded by popular artists including Diana Ross, the Jackson 5, and Debbie Boone in the 1970s. He also composed scores for a number of motion pictures and TV shows. In spite of this growing good fortune early in his professional life, Finley has said he still felt something was missing in his personal life. Seeking to fill this void, he abandoned his music career and left for India and the Far East in 1979 to study spiritual teachings and the principles of self-awareness.
