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.
Ghostwriter is the post-punk version of a self-accompanied singer-songwriter... Ghostwriter has toured the States for the last fifteen years, and released seven albums on End of the West records. He has opened for icons like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and T-Model Ford, and played festivals from Sleazefest in Chapel Hill, to Not the Same Old Blues Crap in London. Known for his visceral songwriting and unrelenting DIY ethos, Ghostwriter is often dubbed "the original punk-folk troubadour." // www.endofthewest.com
If you asked him, songwriter and guitarist Nick Diaz might describe himself as an “alligator cowboy rock ‘n’ roller.” Let’s put that into perspective: Sharp, badass, one hell of a bite, some lightning-quick moves catching you off guard, perhaps? Just add a guitar into the equation, and let Diaz take it from there. // www.buenosdiazmusic.com
