Book of Changes, the new album by Guy Blakeslee as ENTRANCE, is a poetic song cycle about the seasons of the heart, tracing an emotional journey through longing and emptiness to peace and redemption. The record achieves a seamless melding of the personal, political and philosophical, a vibrant document of an artist hitting a creative stride and discovering an expansive new sound. The adventurously produced collection of songs is reminiscent of Townes Van Zandt’s ruminative lyricism and the gypsy flavored orchestral explorations of Arthur Lee and Love, uniquely channeled through Blakeslee’s 21st Century approach to the spiritual dimensions of American songwriting in a way that gives an old form new power.

Book of Changes follows the sold out Promises EP. ENTRANCE’s Guy Blakeslee is well respected in the indie community and toured on the EP release with Beach House, Explosions in the Sky, and Scott Fagan. The recent live performances were compared to Jeff Buckley, Luther Perkins, Iron & Wine, and Rufus Wainwright.

Book of Changes features Blakeslee joined by longtime collaborator Paz Lenchantin (Pixies, Silver Jews) and percussionist Frank Lenz (Pedro the Lion, The Weepies). The album was mixed by David Vandervelde (Father John Misty, Jay Bennett) and Chris Coady (Future Islands, Cass McCombs) with mastering by Grammy nominated engineer Sarah Register (David Bowie, The Shins).
