Sweet Demon--To the Depths
Eighteen-year old musical wizard that has been performing in local venues for all-age shows for many years. Prefers the informality of street performances and playing for small groups, although extremely energetic and powerful on stage. He plays multiple instruments and is always thinking of the next song, the next story or picture to create to challenge your mind. Towering ability in creating unique songs with meaningful lyrics (mind-capturing poems) depicting life's trials with it's madness and reaching beyond to the other side. Grown up in the enchanting realms of New Mexico, his music tells of dreams, love, spirits, and discovers pirates' secrets in the depths. Although, Gentry (as friends call him) loves guitars, he composes many songs on the key board and adds percussion and harmonica to add folk flare. He is influenced by Tom Waits and Bob Dylan and many other artists in old and new rock and blues. He loves Edgar Allen Poe stories and poems and has put 'El Dorado' to music, composing a scary capturing piece. This is the only song out of 14 track on his first CD that he did not write. Gentry's music is different with powerful messages for those that want to be challenged into new realms. As young artist, Gentry is eager to create and perform. His ambition is to produce songs that others will embrace and incorporate into their lifes. He has deep messages that for him are best given through music. Listeners find themselves singing along to 'Sweet Demon' and then crying with 'Garden of Secrets & Thorns'. Two songs deal with roses (black and yellow) with symbolisms that are unique to each listener's life experience. Everyone can identify with 'December' because death is just part of life. Gentry wants all to enjoy and be involved with his music and he thanks you for listening.
