After winning the Wangaratta National Jazz Awards for drums in 1997 he went on to play with many of Australia’s most celebrated jazz musicians such as Mark Simmonds and Ren Walters. His broad musical interests have led him to intensively study Flamenco, South Indian Carnatic Music, Javanese Gamelan music and West African musics
While studying jazz and improvised music(s) at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, alongside Ren Walters he started the weekly concert series 'Improvised Tuesdays', now known as the Make It Up Club and is Australia's longest running performance space dedicated to experimental and improvised musics. After relocating to Nantes, France, he was curator for CABLE#, a collective who organized regular concerts and an annual festival.
Guthrie has performed at countless venues and festivals all over the world including Lieu Unique (Nantes), Cafe Oto (London), Berghain (Berlin), Super Deluxe (Tokyo), Meta House (Phnom Penh), MONA FONA (Hobart), Suoni Per Il Popolo (Montreal), Lampo (Chicago), Oct Loft Jazz Happening (Shenzhen) and the Geometry Of Now (Moscow).
