A Baltimore native, Guy Blakeslee found his way to Chicago where he first began to play under the guise of the name Entrance, performing regularly at a bar called The Hideout. Over the next few years, Blakeslee toured as a solo act alongside the likes of Devendra Banhart, Will Oldham, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Cat Power, wowing audiences with his remarkably powerful singing voice and self-taught guitar work. In 2005, The Entrance Band was formed with former member of A Perfect Circle and Zwan, Paz Lenchantin and drummer Derek James. Today, The Entrance Band has solidified a loyal and adoring fan base, has toured with Sonic Youth and Mazzy Star, and has released two full-length albums, both to critical acclaim. The band is currently in the midst of recording their third full-length effort: Face the Sun.
