Shane Bartell

  • The Buzz Mill 1505 Town Creek Drive Austin, TX, 78741 United States (map)

With his trademark blend of tense guitar, spiraling keyboards, and twittering drums, Shane Bartell’s songs are decidedly difficult to pin down, twisting and squirming into new, dynamic shapes, re-inventing themselves with each subsequent listen. Citing a bevy of eclectic influences (from the Smiths to Brazilian bossa nova), Shane Bartell is concerned primarily with provocative, descriptive storytelling.

"It is only a matter of time before he is recognized as one of America’s great songwriters."
-Paste Magazine

"Shane Bartell mixes the sophisticated, turtle-necked, too- suave-for-irony pop-smarts of Burt Bacharach with the high- octane unpretentiousness of a Burt Reynolds movie."
