Singer-songwriter-pianist-producer Gentry Bronson has been compared to Tom Waits, Tori Amos, Ryan Adams, David Gray, Billy Joel and Nick Cave, but throughout his career, Gentry has continued to be completely original, proving himself as a pop craftsman, composer and showman. Gentry began playing piano at age 5, won several Minnesota Music Teachers Association awards for piano performance by junior high school, started singing in his first garage band at age 15, and moved to the US West coast a week after his 18th birthday. He tried his hand at avante garde jazz, spoken word, and DJing, before returning to what he knew best: telling a story with music and laying everything on the line while on stage. In 2000, he won three Northern California Songwriters Association awards. Then, in 2001, Gentry put together a group of musicians and founded the Night Watchmen, a band that combined the late night worlds of rock, pop, jazz, and cabaret. The group developed a wide reaching group of fans, but in 2005 he retired the band. Driven by an indie ethic, Gentry has released seven records since 2001. This new solo album "No War' was co-produced in Northern California by Gentry and Scott Llamas (Deflator Mouse, Tragedy Andy). He calls 'No War' his Star Wars trilogy record. Gentry has performed around the world and is not slowing down. His dramatic and soulful performances continue to receive rave reviews. And his varied music releases cross over many boundaries, building fans in the rock, pop, folk, jazz, blues, ambient and new age genres. Gentry's other CDs, all available through CDBaby, include: Gentry Bronson & Dave Hoover - Santa Fe Sky (instrumental) Gentry Bronson - Home Gentry Bronson - Tranquillo (instrumental) The Night Watchmen - Lost In California The Night Watchmen - Rain Come Down Cowboy maverick boy clown lover loser hitchhiker storyteller ringleader - take a listen to 'No War' - and hear what someone somewhere is talking about right now.
