Storytelling has always been a fixture in his writing, and Bartels continues to evolve his narratives by digging deeper beneath the surface and clinging to an authentic message. He captures a moment and fleshes it out to its barest, rawest form, thereby creating a piece of art that—regardless of genre or setting—moves the listener. Bartels’s most current work embodies this action and directly reflects his mission to convey truthful narratives.
2019 will see the release of a new five-song EP: Promised Land. Divergent from his previous work, this release marks a transition into a new artistic phase and applies his aforementioned understanding of the world. Promised Land is a collection of songs centered on the art of breaking down one’s belief systems, habits, personality, and rebuilding a new person. Bartels says,
“These songs are love songs. They’re about loving myself enough to question everything I am and being willing to break myself down to my core so that I can find who I can be if I’m at my best. I wanted to capture a transition in my life in a way that I believe other people can look at themselves and find common ground through vulnerability.”
