Bartley Knives is the solo project of Daniel Guezen, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Winnipeg. His indie-folk songs combine honest and poetic lyrics with open-tuned guitars and catchy rhythms. With nearly a decade of playing in various local bands, Bartley Knives is a collection of songs and styles gleaned over time.
His debut solo EP, "Lone Goose", was released in late 2018 on New Wild Records. Made in the West End of Winnipeg, "Lone Goose" is a record of independence, of trying to go it alone but realizing that life is better when you live it together. This folk-rock record was also made to sound like a full band with Daniel playing all the instruments, although his live shows are pared down to just guitar and vocals to express the essence of these six songs – and many new ones. After a quiet year of minimal performances in 2019, Bartley Knives is back in full force to awkwardly grace the stages of Winnipeg and beyond.
