Bartley Knives is the solo project of Daniel Guezen, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Winnipeg. On tape, his recordings are melodic and folky, at times pensive or explosive. On stage, he performs within the sonic framework of a guitar-and-drums duo, delivering honest and poetic lyrics over open-tuned guitars and catchy rhythms.
His debut release, "Lone Goose", is a folk-rock EP released in September 2018 on New Wild Records. Recorded in the West End neighbourhood 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. Daniel also performs in Sun Gaze, Sibyl and formerly The New Wild.
