Gutt's family resided in St. Clair County, located in southeast Michigan, throughout most of his childhood years. He attended schools in both Algonac and Marine City, graduating from Marine City High School in 1994.
Gutt became the lead vocalist for Dry Cell by joining the rock band Beyond Control which consisted of members Danny Hartwell, Judd Gruenbaum, and Brandon Brown. The band released a studio album titled Disconnected in 2002. Gutt left the band in 2004 and Dave Wasierski replaced him as lead vocalist. Gutt rejoined Dry Cell in 2005.
After parting ways with Dry Cell in 2004, Gutt recorded 8 demo songs with a band named Acrylic.
In 2005 (when Dry Cell went on hiatus), Gutt and his friend, guitarist Gary Pittel, formed Band With No Name (abbreviated as BWNN). The band also included Aaron Hutchinson (drums), Justin “Antic” Hackman (keyboards), Mike Guy and later Ben Lula (bass). In 2007, BWNN released a 5-track self-titled EP. In 2008, they won 89X & TNTs Battle Of The Bands in Michigan and received $10,000 and studio time to record a new EP. 7 new songs were recorded, and a full-length album named Humanity was released in 2009. In 2013, it was re-released under Gutt's name on iTunes and included the song "Stay", which was previously known as the album's B-side.
The band went on a brief hiatus from 2005 to 2007, but in 2008 reunited with same members. In 2009 Gutt left Dry Cell for good.
In early 2010 a compilation The Dry Cell Collection was released. It contains previously released demos from 2003, 2005 and 2008, b-sides from Disconnected and one previously unreleased song, "So Alive". The band had no news on their MySpace page since 2010. In 2012, it was said on Gutt's official website that Dry Cell is now defunct.
In 2012 two early extended plays featuring Gutt on vocals were made downloadable for free through his official site: a 3-track 1992–1995 compilation (named Nautical Star by fans for its cover) and a 4-track Dragonfly (1997). The latter was recorded by Gutt with the band of the same name which featured Steve Mazur of Our Lady Peace on guitar. Lyrics from the Dragonfly song "Sugarpill" were later used for a Dry Cell song "New Revolution".
In 2012, Gutt auditioned for the second season of the American singing competition series The X Factor. In an episode broadcast on September 20, 2012, Gutt sang "Hallelujah", a cover of Leonard Cohen getting unanimous four "yes"es from the judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid. But he couldn't make it past the "bootcamp" stage and was eliminated before the live shows. Several weeks later, Cowell stated to Access Hollywood that one regret he had was sending Gutt home early.
On March 29, 2013, Gutt released a music video for his debut solo single "Hallelujah" through vimeo. Gutt's bandmates from BWNN are also shown in the video. On April 28, 2013, the single was released on iTunes.
In 2013, he returned once again with the third season of the competition. He auditioned with the song "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" from Aerosmith. After the judges objected, he was offered a second song, "Creep" from Radiohead. Based on that performance, he was put in the Final 40, and one of ten finalists in the "Over 25" category mentored by Kelly Rowland.
In January, 2014, Gutt revealed members of his new alternative rock band Rival City Heights: BWNN/Punch bandmate Gary Pittel (guitar), ex-Dry Cell bandmate Brandon Brown (drums), Cyamak Ashtiani (guitar) and KC Jenkins (bass).
On May 3, 2014, Rival City Heights played the debut show at the Masonic Temple in Detroit.
In December, 2014, Gutt released "A Detroit Christmas" as a solo artist.
In late 2015, Rival City Heights toured the Middle East (Jordan,Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon) and India for a series of concerts in association with the Princess Alia Foundation.
On February 19, 2016, Rival City Heights released the debut single "Take It Back" and from February to March 2016, played a tour with Trapt to promote it. Before the tour Brandon Brown left the band and was replaced with Evanescence's Will Hunt on drums. On November 29, 2016, it was announced that Gary Pittel and Cyamak Ashtiani left the band, Gene Lenardo (ex-Filter, Device) was to take guitar duties, and that Rival City Heights was renamed to Rival City.
On October 31, 2016, Rival City released "Fading Out / What's Going On", a double single produced by Kevin Churko.
On November 16, 2016, Entertainment Tonight reported that Stone Temple Pilots had recruited Gutt to be their new lead singer, replacing Chester Bennington, who had left the band one year earlier. The following day, however, a representative for the band denied this rumor, saying that "the band has been rehearsing with several singers over the past few weeks" and "they haven't made a decision yet." Almost a year later, on November 14, 2017, Stone Temple Pilots officially announced Gutt as their new lead singer, and played their first concert with him that same night at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. Gutt's first single with the band is "Meadow." Founding member Dean DeLeo said: “We wanted someone who would not only do our earlier songs justice, but would also write new songs and carve out a different path forward with us. It took some time, but we found our guy."
