Thrill Jockey is pleased to announce the signing of ENTRANCE, the multi-talented singer-songwriter Guy Blakeslee. An artists 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 ENTRANCEs interpretation of Skip James Im So Glad in the film Her. Continuing in this vein, his Thrill Jockey debut will be the emotive production Promises.
Meanwhile throughout the summer, ENTRANCE will be drawing on material from a forthcoming 2017 album in a series of select shows throughout Europe & the US. Both solo and with his new band, ENTRANCEs performances are deeply moving emotional experiences that linger on long after the lights have come on.

Sioux’s drawn quick comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, but she’s a closer descendant of the more acid-washed pool of ’70s singer/songwriters inhabited by Linda Perhacs, Vashti Bunyan, and Tim Hardin. Her surreal lyrical approach paints strange and memorable images; it’s her words that’ll pull you in and hold your attention. – Consequence of Sound
