Entrance, recently signed to Thrill Jockey, is the multi-talented singer-songwriter Guy Blakeslee. An artist’s artist, Entrance is a musician with the blues running through his veins. His newest creations add up to a set of rich, cinematic songs featuring expansive orchestration and imaginative story telling, as unique to himself as they are, at times, evocative of Townes Van Zandt, Scott Walker and Gene Clark. Among his fans, he counts the likes of Spike Jonze, who featured Entrance’s interpretation of Skip James’ “I’m So Glad” in the film “Her.”
Continuing in this vein, his Thrill Jockey debut, the emotive production Promises was released in September last year. Recent shows have seen Entrance drawing on material from his forthcoming album in a series of select shows throughout Europe & the US. Both solo and with his new band, Entrance’s performances are deeply moving emotional experiences that linger on long after the lights have come on.
His latest release, Book of Changes, is released on Feb 24th 2017 via Thrill Jockey.
