Bartley Knives is Daniel Guezen, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Winnipeg. Having played in various local bands for nearly ten years, Bartley Knives is a solo project that sets itself apart from the past, seeking new arrangements and sounds through songs old and new.
His debut release, "Lone Goose", is a folk-rock EP recorded in his West End neighbourhood of Winnipeg. It was released on September 7, 2018 via New Wild Records, a label run by Daniel and his brother, Sean. "Lone Goose" has graced the charts at CKUW for three months in 2018, spending four consecutive weeks at number 1. Daniel also collaborates in bands such as The Vangoras (via Transistor 66 Records), Sun Gaze (aka Sean Guezen), Sibyl and formerly The New Wild.
You can see him at Forth Café on December 23 with Sorrier and Ciel, and he aims to take flight in the new year with various performances and festivals around the country.
